I responded to a job posting online, and was contacted and interviewed with Shaun Knapp the recruiter at the company. Shaun told me all this good stuff about the position he said they had all these inbound calls and fresh leads. Said I would make big commissions and become a series 65 licensed financial advisor on the other side of the wall. I attended training with a completely incompetent trainer whole also happens to be the President of this company (Shawn Burdick) many of us wondered what the heck was going on but okay. The building is a converted warehouse with cheap cubicles and bathrooms. Once we got on the phones after training the truth began coming out. The calls were hardly there and they forced everyone to become outbound telemarketers. The people calling in from the radio ads are driving, you can’t hear them because they are distracted and they are hardly interested in a financial advisor because they are poor as crap and too dumb to know better. Then the so called commission which becomes nothing are based on you cost per enrollment (this is confusing but okay). Knapp told me that we could work as much overtime as possible but what he didn’t say was if you work overtime you forfeit your commission. The pay plan is very complex, I asked Tim Amerson the sales director to explain the pay plan to me more in detail and he was confused. Pay is 11.08hr or not $14hr but is if you don’t get 20 sales per month then your cost enrolments is higher and they will fire you immediately, write you up over and over. Then on top of this if the customer service department pisses the customer off and they cancel then you are held liable for those sales being lost. If customer service fails to contact the customer and lose the sale then it’s still your fault. They send out these cancellation emails showing countless account cancellations daily. The bottom line is you will never make commissions just your hourly and they will pocket your commissions for themselves. Now, let’s talk about the schedule they don’t care if you have other arrangements they mix up your schedule on a rotation system. They told me I was going to become a financial advisor and I don’t see that happening. The meetings are negative they have this guy Bob- Robert Boyd iii the COO who everyone hates and I see why, he’s nothing but a car salesman who need to go back and sell cars. I heard he couldn’t pass the series 65 or the insurance test why is he telling us what to do and how to sell this is not a car lot. Everyone is leaving and walking out. The people running this place must be the dumbest people on earth. To show how dumb they are they have an in house attorney here muscle poor little helpless and powerless employees out of their commission money. I quit my job to start working here and now I am out of luck and regret it! I will be walking out soon. They lied to us and now they are angry because we are intelligent enough through the bs. It’s not our fault they don’t have the know how to manage this company. They are so caught up in their unprofessional pettiness and egotism that there company is going sour. Can anyone direct me to a real company with real leaders? Out of all the people working for them they only have a few who has been there from the start maybe three, ebveryone else are new. Big red flag!
