The company told me to submit 6 applications in 60 days or $6,000 in commission and then I will start getting paid a salary. In the life insurance application it said I don't need to collect a check from anyone to submit an application.
Then once I start getting paychecks the quota is pretty high to maintain for over 2 years for most agents. Even the top producers with the best warm markets that I saw were starting to cool off before their first year was over, and even they probably have to get cut slack to stay on board because they have trouble hitting the quota.
The quota is high because the company wants to have just cause to fire anyone they want to.
Companies change people change, so if you're reading this maybe it's changed.
