straight commission, no benefits, about a 2% retention rate
Senior Territory Agent (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – April 21, 2018
Let's face it, a straight commission job with little to no training is never an easy thing to do! Training was effective on the products, but the most important part was actually getting the potential clients first in which there was no assistance whatsoever. You were told to start with family and friends, then go out and simply "talk to people". I lived off credit cards trying to make it work, but eventually had to declare Chapter 7. Unless you already have a preexisting book of business, stay away from Insurance and Investments in general. Highest turnover rate in ANY job market.
little time in the office, make your own schedule
almost impossible to succeed unless you come in with your own business established
