I was told about the guarantee before I signed a contract but didn't realize thatin the area I would be working that it would be so hard to sell the policies.
I went on several "cold calls"(canvasing the neighborhood)I have had the door slammed shut in my face, been told that if Combined was the last insurance company on earth they would do without, and told numerous times that someone used to have combined and they had nothing but trouble trying to get their claims paid.
I have also heard numerous stories of the way sales agents have pushed the person into geting a policy. Some agents have even misrepresented the policy to sell it.
I am sure that my story is not unique and there are more agents out there who are as disenheartend with this company as I am. I personally don't agree with the push, push, push of some agents. That may be why I am not a great success story for this company. But I do have morals and refuse to pressure someone into taking something they either can't afford or don't want. After all we were told to do the right thing because it is the right thing to do.
I have a district manager who belittles his employees, gives the best assignments to his favorites and never calls unless it is to let you know that you need to work harder to make him money. On the other hand I have a sales manager who really tries to help you when you need it. I have personally seen the district manager pick out the best routes for a favored employee and give a bad assignment to the others.
I am remaining anonymous simply because I work for them still and can't afford to quit until I find another job
