Depends on the agent
Licensed Insurance Agent (Current Employee) –  Alexandria, VA 22309November 17, 2018
A typical day at work really depends on the agent's office you are in. Some agents are not organized and have a very high turn over rate and the environment is very stressful other agents keep it fun, organized and make everything a teachable moment.
Pros
colleagues, 9-5 hours, weekends off
Cons
Stress when numbers are low.

Best suited for someone with experience
Insurance Representative (Former Employee) –  Lakeland, FLNovember 2, 2018
This is definitely the type of job for someone who is able to work independently. My bosses, absolutely wonderful and understanding. The job itself, less than satisfactory. My team made it bearable, but it's difficult working a position where you're constantly facing rejection. Not for the faint of heart.
Pros
Pto, great culture, opportunity to strengthen skills
Cons
pressure for sales

Awful
INSURANCE AGENT (Former Employee) –  Ringgold, GAOctober 31, 2018
I do not recommend working here unless you already have some insurance and banking knowledge. They do not allow for proper training and when given a task that you aren't sure on how to complete you become unworkable. Also, a lot of cold calling to dead end numbers or numbers that have been called multiple times over multiple years.
Pros
Some great people in the staff
Cons
Poor management

Great starting grounds
Insurance Sales Agent (Former Employee) –  Clinton Township, MIOctober 19, 2018
Overall, it was a great starting experience for broadening my horizon with sales. They have a lot of products and options to make a prospect a client/customer but most of what you'll do is quote auto insurance.
