    Most of the products are good.

    Long hours, supervisors are abusive and will call and steal your clients behind your back, customers have to fight to get their claims paid. Large amounts of chargebacks.

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time

    Pros

    There are none they rely on a antiquated business model. Face to Face appointments driving everywhere Not a technology based company so far behind the times.

    Cons

    Too many to list

    Advice to Management

    Hire professional leaders. I went out on a so called field training in Palm Beach county. All my trainer talked about was how many men she was dating which was really off putting. She made a lot of promises which she eventually broke. The appointments ended up being 1 and an existing client which she bullied into up selling "She told me if you get a call from home office tell them that i trained you from 9-4" Wow my...

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A solid look at insurance sales, door-to-door sales, learning the business.

    Cons

    Expect to work 7 days a week making phone calls on Saturday and Sunday and seeing customers Monday through Friday from dawn till way past dusk. Turnover in the sales force has to be 95% at best. The vast majority leave within 3 months. Even many top agents leave within a year. Even those Who Have Made It consistently to account executive or senior account executive. They simply get burned out, they can't keep up...

    Advice to Management

    Tell the average sales agent exactly what the top earners do and how they do it.

    Pros

    The benefits and educational opportunities

    Cons

    The management, the pay, and the lack of caring for the agent

    Advice to Management

    Hire better managers. This company is about PMA and getting out there. You cant do that with mentally abusive managers.

    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The income potential is unlimited and the training is excellent. After graduating from sales school, my manager showed my the ropes and after a few weeks I was pretty much on my own. It takes hard work, but it is well worth it They teach you everything you need to know to be successful- you just need to apply yourself and do it I have already been on a few company trips- and they are awesome. So far I have been...

    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I came from Aflac, where no training was offered whatsoever, which was surprising to me since they are such a well known company. I was recruited from Combined and saw from Day 1 that this was no place like Aflac. I know all levels of Managers above me at Combined care about my continued success, and I know that ANY of them, even if their not MY manager, would still help me with anything I could ever need. Unlike Aflac,...

    Cons

    Don’t waste your time or theirs (managers) if you don’t want to put the hard work in that’s necessary to make the big $. Otherwise, there’s no one to blame but yourself. YOU can be your own con, don’t let that happen

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what your doing!
