As some of you pointed out, your selling of policies would be conditional to some extent. So was mine. I insisted that my cold-calling attributes may be disappointing if this was expected. I was told, "No problem-There are plenty of cards to work off of and premium to collect!" By the third week, superiors told me that if I was going to be successful I must start knocking on doors and asking strangers to buy insurance--DUH!, in other words, "cold-calling".
Also, by the third week, I was by myself and it was easy to see that one should be an accompolished and experienced saleperson or a pretty good liar (or both), to actually make a living with this company. I chose to be a liar--(obviously, since I couldn't be experienced in sales). I figured, surely the company wouldn't mind if I left out pertinent information and stretched the truth occasionally when writing policies. After all, I learned from the best Insurance Training Department in the country. Whatever the potential policyholder wanted to hear, I was whole-heartedly and excitedly, affirmitive. Especially, since I didn't know the answers to many questions in the first few weeks anyway.
To summarize, if you're looking for a job, you best keep looking. Unless, of course, you're experienced in sales--or a good liar. By the way, I wasn't a very good liar. I liked being able to sleep at night. Anyway, as I look back at my involvement with Combined Insurance, I shake my head in disbelief and disgust at some of the events of which I was involved.
