===================== NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Senior Healthcare Consultants, SHC Marketing How life really is with SHC.. without rose colored glasses Irving Texas
I am the wife of a former employee of Senior Healthcare Consultants. It was the most stressful time of my life. When my husband signed onto this company, he was given many false statements and a lot of unanswered or sugar coated answers about this company.
First, he was told that he would be working Tuesday thru Friday, many long hours 7am to 8pm. That was not the problem, he was expecting to work long hours to get this off the ground. But instead of Tuesday thru Friday, it was all Monday morning online training with SHC sales director Mr. Douglas. Then calling their clients to see if they changed their banking draft to be charged to Central Reserves from their previous Medipay insurance, along with ,if they had received there new policies. That is if they got off the online training at a reasonable time in the afternoon.
Then it would be to wait to see when the leads for appointments for the following day would be posted to SHC website, which would usually be posted after 8 pm. Then, get directions for each appointment, then call your team leader to discuss each appointment and the insurance that they had. They constantly stated that all these other insurance was crap and how that the insurance that SHC marketed was so superior to the others.
Except one time my husband was selling Central Reserve and the client he was meeting the next day had United Teacher insurance, he was told the same old thing about how this company can drop you at anytime, they are an old block and bah, bah, bah. The problem was that United Teachers is an insurance that SHC sells for. I guess if his appointment had Central Reserve as their insurance instead, he would have suppose to do the company line on that insurance company was crap just to get the sale for United Teachers. Ok.. sorry I went on long about that, but that about the time my husband starting questioning a lot of SHC ethics.
Now back to the week with SHC, on Tuesday thru Friday he would be on the road usually by 7:00 am that is after talking to the team leader one more time before he left. He would have usually 4 appointments set each day, he would get to the house then have to talk his way into the house after the client instance that they had told the person that called to not send anybody to their house. Oh by the way, do not question the call center, it is you fault that the person did not want to see you. After you have to pay for each of the appointments, no matter if you saw the client or not.
He got home around 8:00 pm, then the fun began, he would have to go online for the 8:30 meeting that would last till at least 10:30. Same old bull crap about, how the clients are just liars when they state that they did not set the appointment, and how to make the senior citizen feel that if they do not change that it will be end of the world for life as they know it. This always weight on my husband mind.
Then he would get off the meeting only to fax his notes that he had taken in the meeting to the head honcho that was in charge of the meeting, then fill out his paperwork for each policy he written and faxed them in, then call the team leader to go over each appointment that he had the next day after getting directions online. He finally made it to bed around 11:30 to 12:30 each night. What a life, or should I say no life.
This company is not family friendly, in fact they brag about time. SHC management always states Sleep fast, work hard and a stupid saying of Follow blindly. You have no life and Do not question ANYTHING.
Then, I have a major problem with this MR thing, my husband and I have always respected my superiors at work, but they expect to be called MR. so and so all the time, do not call them by their first name. What an ego problem, this company only has about handful of managers. This is not a large corporation.
Something that did scare me about this company, it was the night that MR. DALE (the owner of SHC) was on the online meeting and did this Mr. Jeckel, Mr. Hyde routine. He first started out with this good job speech, and then all of a sudden he changed to a rant about how everyone was crap (thats a nice word for what he was using) and then there was also an email he forward to everyone about how is father (Mr. Dale Sr.) was trying to steal SHC employees from him and he was going to sue his father and keep him in court until it broke his father. He seems to be on some kind of major drugs or on the SHC kool aid.
My husband talked to two different people at the office in Texas (the only office) and they both stated that MR. DALE does not talk to anyone in the office, only management. What is that?
Sorry I went on so long, but I felt it was necessary to let people know a little of what to look forward too. Please don't fall for the just go to the website to read the secret testimonial. What is that all about, they had to set up a secret testimonials from the management. Before signing with them, ask them for 5 names and telephone numbers of employees that have been there for more than 3 months and not a team leader or management (too much of the company line). And then call to see how they feel, I bet SHC will not finish you these names. They might not have 5 employees that have been there for that long.
