Competitive and Stressful
Health Insurance Agent (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – June 11, 2018
They reel you in by promising you'll make tons of money and can be your own boss. That is not the case. You are punished for doing the simplest things, like not wanting to work a Saturday. It is pure commission, so there is no guaranteed paycheck and you are told to work countless hours 7 days a week, even holidays. You are scolded if you take any time off, such as a personal day or if you fall ill, therefore getting less leads, etc. It was supposed to be a way for me to make money at my own pace, but I quickly realized unless you were basically willing to give up your life, there is absolutely no way you will make any money.
Oh, and the money you do make is not "yours". If a client cancels then they take that money away. You can even end up owing the company. So all that hard work and countless hours for nothing.
Do not work for this company.
The potential to make money
Terrible leadership and work environment, no check for weeks
