    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Knoxville, TN

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

    Pros

    None. If you want to be extremely frustrated, then, by all means, go for it. There’s a reason while they run an agent mill that cranks out new agents a few times a month. Virtually all agents flame out within 6 months.

    Cons

    Everything. If you want to spend all your commissions on gas, fast food, and vehicle wear and tear, then this is the perfect job for you! This company operates with an outdated door-to-door model. Most people don’t appreciate salesmen knocking on their door after dark in 2019. It was an accepted practice in 1949–but not now. Management will harass their sales people. I would get text messages in church at 10a.m. I would get texts from management while I was in bed at 10:30 pm. I’m not a trauma surgeon, and no one was bleeding to death. This manager was predatory in his sales practices and very uncouth in his interaction with employees. There is no such thing as work/life balance. What I have stated to true of probably 95 percent of this company’s sales force, most likely more. I could write for days about the sleazy practices that I noticed while working for Combined.

    Pros

    you get to go to a 5 star hotel for the first 2 weeks to hear all the propaganda and learn the sales pitch you are supposed to try to get someone to buy supplemental insurance, they also pay for you to get your insurance sales license, 400 each week for the first 2 weeks.

    Cons

    Mandatory weekly pep talk conferences, cold calling, old leads, driving over an hour to your territory then walking door to door , knocking on doors. pay not commensurate with the hours.

    Pros

    When you do well you are definitely recognized and the trips are great.

    Cons

    Your a hero one day and loser the day. Upper Management along the East Coast is ruthless. You are definitely micro manage. They expect you to go door to door six days a week.

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

    Pros

    The apps you work with are very simple and easy to understand. The Training was very good. Company Issued Ipad to conduct your business, free business cards. They have some great products also

    Cons

    You do not have any leads like they say you will. The only "leads" are current policy holders and a list of nearby businesses that are only a lead because they are public knowledge. You literally are a door to door sales person. If you cant sell door to door you will not survive. Had weekly meetings.... way too many along with group messages all day and night and multiple of the groups for no reason on your personal cell and not on just on the company Ipad. The Ipad also has group messages so your being bothered all day and night even if your not working that day or if it doesn't even pertain to you.

    Pros

    Folks are nice and helpful, especially agents since we are all in the same boat hustling.

    Cons

    Talk to 100 people a day outside or door to door and shove your sales in their throat. Exhausting walking or driving around all day long.

    Old school training of days when it was ok and safe to go door to door Upper management could care less about the agent themselves, except what the agents can put in managements pockets.
