the experience was fun and interesting, talking to different clients everyday and convincing them to buy or upgrade their policies was one of the interesting part of my job. i had an opportunity to learn more interpersonal skills, solving problems, convincing clients. the pressure was there but i was dedicated i fell in love with my job.

It was a good environment but required daily face to face interactions with client to create your own leads and potentially close deals.No basic was paid it was 100 percent commission based.

I've worked for other companies in the industry and Assupol takes the cup of being the worst employer. Employees are coerced into giving good ratings on best company survey. Employees pay for everything here including coffee and tea. Personal telephone calls are charged even if it's 30cents. Their salaries are ridiculously low and forced to take medical aid which they don't subsidize

I enjoy working because I get to meet a lot of different people and these enhance my skills in how to solve issues, how to sell products how to deal with a client that is having a bad day. My client service improve everyday and I am amazed at the skills I have of putting costumers first and also to adhere to the fit and proper regulations.

I travel a lot to different places to be able to reach my target for !y sales. The most challenging part is not having control over an unhappy client or someone who is on a tight budget and wants to cancel their policies.


But overall the sales work is very challenging and it needs someone who is very passionate about their work.
Cons
Flexable hours

Management lack respect for employees. Racist tendencies and sabotage is the order of the day. Assupol is a great company overall just wished I had transferred to Head Office instead of staying in a white dominated branch. If you going to apply know that previously disadvantaged you will be made to feel inferior and stupid, dont be clever and show your capabilities it will be crushed quickly.
Pros
Free gifts and Head Office support
Cons
Long hours, no recognitions, sabotage and white supremacy

Great environment. Self-management was expected and I was judged on results.

You have the freedom to use your mind and contribute towards the company's success freely. The hardest part is the lack of guidance, however it is a paradise if you thrive on challenges as I do.


Co-workers are friendly and supportive.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
None
