When I went it was a group interview with a manager who was clearly a sales person. He was loud and upbeat and attempting to sell us on the job. After about 20 minutes of listening to him ramble he decided to say the job is commission only and you won't make any real money until after you've worked for the company for over a year. He then said don't waste my time by staying if you are not interested you can go ahead and leave.

It may depend on your location because there are no drug tests at any Colonial Life offices in this area of the territory as far as i know of at any point in the hiring process or during employment. Colonial doesnt want to pay for a drug test for everyone of the dozens of people that start and quit working there every month. Plus you are contracted by them and are a 1099. You work for yourself technically.

Colonial Life has an Area Sales Representative (ASR), Agency Development Manager (ADM) and District General Agent (DGA) at the local office level. Some offices might rebrand the ASR as account executive, but when you begin the hiring process that would come out and probably turn the applicant off. All these positions are 100% commission which is exactly why they are so good! Instead of making someone else wealthy and receiving a small portion in the means of an hourly wage, you make yourself wealthy by being the owner of your own business.

Of course it is. There is no salary. No hourly wage. No commitment to the employee whatsoever. It's like not having a job at all. Literally.

One month after training I made my first sale. But work was irregular so you couldn't count on an income.
