I was one of those people who got a call and because I wanted to make sure if this is what I wanted to do, I googled it first, as soon as I saw some of those bad feedbacks I didn't show up for my appointment. Not for first time, or the second time. By the 3rd time they called me, I told myself, let me just go and find out for myself. I'm a smart man and I know what's good or bad for me anyway, to make the story the short , I showed up.
Yes, it was a long process. For 1 hour I was being interviewed by them and were being asked all of those questions. I had doubts and started to remember the things I've read online but guess what ? They called me back the same day and said that I was qualified and that the Regional Director wanted to see me and make an offer to me. I was pretty happy with the offer. I started as an SUV ( Unit Sale Supervisor) with a very good salary and full associate benefit like 401K, health, life vision, Dental and much more. I have to say that this company actually helped me pay off all my debt in the first 6 months. the override of the 24 agents that they handed to me + commission of my own sale + quarterly bonus! I even made my own limo company last year called firstLaLimo and do have my own business right now and I owed it to Bankers .
You know what VENESSA , the lady started your review with "Scam , stay away ." If this company was a scam they wouldn't survive for 134 years in this economy and have 1.4 million policyholders in the seniors market . Think 2 twice before you post something specially when nobody check to see if you are right or not on this kind of website .
I am not saying Bankers doesn't have bad apple (every country have , many religions have it , any company has it ) or it will work for everybody who gets hired but it's like college , there are so many students in the class in the first week of school but before midterm starts, half the class would be gone and guess when they go to "ratemyprofessors.com" those are the ones saying, " The teacher sucks! ", " The class was horrible."The Teacher doesn't know sh**t." " he/she failed me ".
This is human nature all of us love to blame others for our failure. The people who always say "I made it " is because they love to get credit for themselves . Bankers really changed my life in so many different ways and I'm glad one time in my life I didn't care what everybody thought. You don't see a lot of good feedback on here for people like me or those hundreds of people whose dream began finding the right job, why?.. because we are so busy making our dream come true and making money that we don't have time for Yelp or whatever website where everybody can put anything they want. People spend too much time finding other people to blame, too much energy wasted finding excuses for not being able to do what they are capable of, and not enough energy for putting themselves on the line, growing out of the past, and getting on with their lives. Let us accept our own responsibility for our future.
If You wanna know if Bankers is one of those MLM company that recruit you to get to your family and friends to sell their product, my answer to you is absolutely NOT . Bankers have their own lead generation and own TV commercial ( Colonial Penn company is one of their company you see on TV every morning and evening ) and they provide FREE leads to all their sales representatives and agents and they are a real corporate America that works with the retirement market since 1879 and the reason they are opening new offices every month is because on January 1, 2011, as the baby boomers begin to celebrate their 65th birthdays, 10,000 people will turn 65 every day--this will continue for 20 years and they are Bankers's market from 134 years ago and they offer a comprehensive portfolio of insurance products including long-term care and life insurance, annuities, and Medicare products including supplement plans, Medicare Advantage Plans and Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage and retirement products that especially designed for seniors. Anyway, I love what I read from this lady here: sometimes in life you need to take a Leap of Faith . Just believe in destiny. Don't care what other people say. Just follow your own heart BUT take your brain with you .
