Physicians Mutual Employee Review
Physicians Mutual Licensed agent Review - Commision based
If you can't sell you won't make money you almost need a second job not worth it. It's all commission-based it seem like two managers are kind of mean if you ask him questions they really don't want to hear any complaints and if they do they just tell you to look for another job

They pride themselves on not being the cheapest in the market but the reason they aren't the cheapest is to pay inflated salaries of people who have worked there for 20 years and won't leave so you can't move up. Very high turnover. Managers are clueless and out of touch and treat employees like children.
Frankly, You can work your self to the bone for this company but if you don't have an 'in' with the right people (popularity on the call floor with management, leads and co-workers) you will not get anywhere. If you are liked by the right people, this could be a long lasting job. You won't move up to or past 'lead' for several years since people do not retire, they work until they are incompetent. There is a call center manager who is well known because "she used to be good, now she is just old and forgetful. Don't ask her." However if you are like most people and want to do their job and go home or are not catty and do not participate in drama, this won't work for you. The woman in charge of call center hiring and a Physician's Mutual top recognized employee and her boss, the woman directly under the VP of customer service, are both the definition of a passive aggressive mean girls. They both almost reminds me of Ms. Umbridge from Harry Potter. She seems sweet until you actually know her. Both of these women literally had me or my co-worker in tears at our desks at least once a quarter. We would have to go to a luncheon with them as a 'reward' for doing great work and getting recognized, we would hate it. It gave everyone anxiety. My bosses boss actually made fun of my co-workers shoes to the point she was in tears after a luncheon. All supervisors on the call floor pick and chose their favorites and gossip with them about other employees, even though they deny it.
Decent pay, bonus opportunities, breaks, beautiful campus
