Field Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – January 8, 2019
I have never worked in a job where I had as much support and encouragement. They genuinely want their employees to succeed and achieve their highest potential. They are mission driven and are fully committed to their customers and employees. There are more long-term employees in this organization than any other I have known, which says a lot. The turnover is fairly high because it is a challenging job. You definitely need to be self-motivated and not be opposed to spending a lot of time driving. It depends on the territory I guess, but mine is extensive so I drive A LOT. The pay is great when you stick to the plan and the flexibility is great! My favorite part of my job is getting to find so many great little businesses. I seem to find the best that every community has to offer and have developed great relationships with business owners throughout my territory. Another thing I really like is, if you need help you've got it. NFIB is extremely responsive and willing to help. If it is your skills you are struggling with they will help you. If you need help with your benefits their HR is fantastic! The sales support and member care employees are out of this world. I literally have nothing bad to say about the organization.
Great experience early on. Did well until they didn't fulfill promises of territory exclusivity and 100% renewals.

My "career", they promised me was fine until the end of the first year. They didn't fulfill the things they assured me would be available, especially continued renewals and advancement for levels I achieved. I left very disillusioned and realized that they weren't what they appeared to represent.

NFIB was a family and promoted growth from within. Then the change in organization head was intended to clean house. The focus shifted to the CEO and other departments suffered. The higher ups presented a false sense of security.

1099 structure is a hindrance to work life balance . It is so hard to work in an environment with no base plus commission structure .The management was good and the markets stable but i just couldn't get the money to flow consistent . The shot gun start and ramp up period was difficult .
attonomous work enviroment
1099 contract structure and memorizing the "pitch"

Excellent organization to work for. If you believe in the future of our country and how important small businesses are for the growth of the U.S. economy, it is amazing what NFIB does to help small businesses! You have to work hard and be excellent at planning out your work day every day and executing the plan but it is worth it!
