Not at all as described

Training is amazing! But once you get on the phones, it all changes. You are micromanaged to an insane level. The calls you receive have no idea who you are or why they were transferred to you. This is nearly every call. Every call is a fight. To actually sell, you have to manipulate and lie to clients l, to make them believe your product is better than their own.

They pay you well of course your yelled at and insulted if you dont force policeys down peoples throats that sometimes make their life worse. My biggest issue is my house burned down while i worked them. They said if i resign they will higher me back when i get things back in ordrr. So i resigned which made it so i couldnt get unemployment and when i tried to get rehired they string me along 2 months and deny me.

Ok place to learn Medicare

I have never been stressed about work as badly as I was with this company. Work/life balance isn't important to them and getting my ADA stuff done felt like mission impossible, they didn't even allow me everything my Dr asked for! The best part of it was the Manger/trainer I had

License to print money. You get all the training and support necessary and the pay structure is unmatched. There is a lot of opportunity to advance and they always promote from within.

Wasn’t for me, but may be for you

I enjoyed this position while it lasted. It taught me a lot, but there is no room for growth as a senior sales agent. They like experienced people that hit numbers with no questions. It wasn’t for me because I feel restricted working from home, as well as the industry of insurance sales; it was not for me. It is a good place to learn from. An entry salesperson can thrive here. Just depends on you as a person.

Select quote is a growing company and I believe it’s due to the respect concern and care they show their employees

What is the best part of working at the company?I am still currently at the company and the best part of working with this company is the positive support you get from your team throughout the day daily to keep you working hard , ultimately I can say I feel very much appreciated here at the job ! I feel my work is enough and I’m always thanked for all I do by my supervisor ! What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Back to back calls non stop daily ! What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Work from home , very convenient What is a typical day like for you at the company?Fast working paste , having a non stop steady polite inviting tone & constantly redirecting !

SQ summary

I think SQ has been a great fit for me and my family. I've made a good living and love the flexibility. If you're cut out for sales, its a good place.

Hard to advance

Great atmosphere, great people to work with. The problem is that most of the sales calls you make are cold calls and people disconnect quickly. Not an easy job if you're not a born salesperson.

Not a bad place to work

Decent place to work. Offer great benefits and you get compensation and rewards. Great health benefits and 401kCommunication is not that great. Constantly changing the call script every two days. Every 3 months they pick people to let go so they can hire new people. You pay gets deducted any where from $100-$500 if you don’t meet goal ( they don’t tell you that)

Honestly Garbage

Maybe this job worked well for you but I had a horrible experience. We were told in orentation, the interview and offer letter our in class training would be 4 weeks. It was, no joke, 2 and a half days. We barely had our systems set up, let alone had a firm understanding of the role before they threw back to back customers at us. I survived, thrived and had a lot of success. I had the highest number of sales (transfers) on our team but one metric was slightly (within 2%) less than needed to graduate.I was told in my multiple one on one meetings I was doing great, I had nothing to worry about. They still let me go.


Its a job you can do from home


Poor management in all areas, terrible HR policies, No job security.

Great Company

They pay for you to get your insurance license in over $20 states. Great pay. Great benefits. Position was seasonal . Highly competitive environment. Great incentives

Completely unstable

Comission compensation plan changes all the time you have unattainable metrics as that even when you do achieve does not add up as comission when you are paid $1 to transfer and coversion rates are about 5$ on average you don’t have time to breath scripts are extremely long and most of there clients cannot afford anything so you are trapped basically earning only the hourly rate

Company is experiencing lots of turnover and layoffs. Prevalent shadow IT and every department felt pretty siloed. Leadership is young. Their stock has lost most of the value since IPO.
