When you are interviewed, being an insurance agent is painted as lucrative, rewarding, honorable and allows you to control your schhedule. Soon you find you are compelled to spend hours on the phone and more hours traveling to the appointments you have slaved to make. It is a numbers game and the outcome of your effort is very unpredictable! Most agents who sold alot of policies turned out to be liars who stretch the truth about the value of the policies they are peddling. The more honest ones are either working or recovering from working. The liars look awesome on paper, but don't last more than a year or two. The company paid generous advance commissions to keep you excited about the future. However, agents who lie are soon chasing their tales trying cover the payback of advances fom early cancellations. After decieved clients learn the policy limitations, many of them cancel. I worked for two years and made some fair money. I was among the top 10 agents because I strove be truthful and had few cancellations. In the long run it was not worth it. I was always stressed and tired. I wore out my tires and my car. 25% of my earnings went for gas and repairs. When market conditions changed in mid-2008, the company was too slow to support agents with prices and products which would sell and meet clients' needs. Our local office went from being the #1 branch in the nation with 32 agents to only 6 agents. Although I qualified for a 3-day cruise, I saw no sense in it because I could not survive in the softened market and would quit after the trip. What an experience!

They serve a VERY special market that is extremely loyal and trusting of the insurance representative.United American Life debit insurance serves a unique niche market. I was very surprised that the majority of the records were handwritten and that Management could remote in and make changes to handheld transactions without disclosing the information to the Agent. This activity made it difficult for me to see the ethics or integrity in their actions. I would like to believe that this was isolated to that particular office.
1099 job, make calls try setting appts, the amount of time spent chasing leads, presentations, travel, is way little pay for the time and effort spent. If a customer changes their mind they take back the pay. Never again and don’t recommend

UA is an excellent company. Their continued training is outstanding. All managers are always available to answer questions. There are no territories or restraints. If you like selling Medicare Supplement products this is for you. They have the best rates on the market. I highly recommend them.
