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

    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.

    Pros

    So far so good. I have just completed my 3rd day of training. So I'm writing this review from my hotel. I am very excited about this new opportunity. I have read some of the reviews on here some negative some positive but I am never going to allow my self to be discouraged by someone else's failure. I will say that this training is intense but I know its going to pay off and I look forward to doing another review...

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

    Pros

    No pros at all. Not a good place to work.

    Cons

    A lot of dishonest activities

    Advice to Management

    Please do not offer incentives just to get agents that they know they are not going to satisfy. It is definitely not a good place to work. At the end agents will leave the company anyway. Also pay attention to customers complaints. There are a lot of dishonest agents pushing the insurance along with the Obamacare. People get confuse a lot because the agents do not explain the customers clearly that the insurance has nothing...

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

    Pros

    NONE none at all. One week in Chicago that is "All expenses paid!" where they work you so hard that you have to stay up until 2 am studying to keep up. My poor fellow duped employees were the only positive thing about the trip.

    Cons

    Nothing this company told me when I was hired was true. I would not be trained in my home town, instead while I was in Chicago I was told that as soon as I got home I would be trained somewhere 3 hours from my home... another week in a hotel. Then one week at home and I was pressured into driving three hours away AGAIN for a one day conference that was more like a cult meeting. EVERY morning you have to sign into a sales...

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

    Pros

    Good money at the start and steady income but once you get all your worm market sales if you have to work away from your home child care can become a issue I’d like to find a job that I could be home working from my computer

    Cons

    Not being home a lot if u want to make money and everything is electronic now so if u don’t have a iPad ur screwed they don’t provide them

    Advice to Management

    If u want to go all internal get ur hole sales fource new iPads since in our contract we pay so much for our material that we no longer use I love combined and the hole team but we need better communication skills and help with us ones who are single moms trying

    I worked at Combined Insurance

    Pros

    I enjoyed the team spirit and the flexibility. I was in charge of my schedule which allowed me to never miss my kids’ events which was important as a single mom if two busy teens. Yes, it’s 100% commissions but if you work the system and actually go to work each day, the income will follow. You must be disciplined and organized in what you do. So many failed because they didn’t want to work each day or follow their systems....

    Cons

    100% commissioned so if you don’t have another source of income in the household, it can bet very stressful and scary.

    Advice to Management

    Give a base for at least two months. Give more opportunities to advance.

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time

    Pros

    The emphasis on the importance of having a positive mental attitude.

    Cons

    Total commission job. Charge-backs. You will be at the gas station often. A focus on a positive mental attitude but that attitude does not include positively believing that you are worth paying at the beginning.

    Advice to Management

    Be more upfront about the job not being for everyone due to not getting paid much at beginning or paid at all during the training for the test. If you are going to preach pma make sure you can practice it. Being excessively controlling and impatient is not what pma is about.

    Thank you for taking the time to review our company. Having a positive mental attitude, or PMA, is key for being able to persevere through the natural ups and downs of commission-only sales. It’s true that this type of sales is not for everyone, and we regret it wasn’t a good fit ...
