If rather not say much about the company itself. But the experience was overall good and challenging. I grew within the workplace and also as person.
The job as a rep is challenging. You have to sell the best product to people and you have to kindly persuade them that it is the best product in the industry,wich can be difficult at times.
You do not have clock times.
You work at your own pace. No work, no pay
I love being alone but avbob have tought me to be around people and I enjoy more and not a shy person .I love solving problems I don't want to be defeated but only in a good way concerning my job .I put my work as my first priority as I spend more time on it than home I don't like being left behind so I make sure that I prepare my self in time.
It would be nice to see reps being assisted with relevant qualifications to get promoted, with atleas 5years in service, this would motivate field workers to grow within the company.. Especially black representatives.. Thank you AVBOB for this platform
Working as a Sales Representative at Avbob it is an eye opener. Yeah well pressure is there thou we are commission based you need to push your self so that you can earn at the end of the month. We sometimes get help from our managers. We work individual There is no team work at all Doing presentations at companies Finding your own source
No free lunch
No long hours
It was very fun and I also got to work with new people each and every day. I had the chance of learning new things on how Avbob funeral and Avbob life were different. The hardest part of the job was to have to work on the rain because i was a field agent
brought my own lunch
the hours depended on how many policies i sold a day
Advising people to join Avbob Life for Funeral benefits, Education plans and Investments. Depending on a commision based salary only was a challenge. Leting clients know how they can pay less save more money on sfuff that is ussually unplanned for was very exciting especially with death always happening unexpectedly and the Funeral benefits were amazing as death is normally a stressful event.
Interacting with different people on a daily bases
Unspecified working hours
Sometimes when you look for customer alone you get discouraged by rejection you get from clients so we normally go out in group and help one another and taught me working as a group is a success always. When we started we went to a training for a week which gave us full understanding of the products and money to kick start with selling of products. The most challenging part of this job is when you signed up a client and there is only one details outstanding when you phone the client a phone goes on voice mail. If a policy is lapsed the commission you earned for that particular pilcy must be reversed. The most enjoyable part is reward I must say commission is great.
No client no salaries
Formal and normal working day with dedicated individuals willing to assist all clients to their satisfaction and always doing their best to go an extra mile in order to maintain and promote the company name taking it to the top. Harmony amongst staff members and working together as a team to do more. Doing as much work as can be done during work time and encouraging the reaching of set goals and targets each day. Celebrating victory at the end of each day, week, month and year. It always seems hard until you start doing it and the more you do it the more it gets simpler and doable (that much i've learned). Management should be more of leaders than "Bosses" in my opinion. Co-workers are not freind's but coleagues and it should therefore stay like that, we talk about work and leave private matters private and never take thing personal as we got to be all in one place because of work and business.
Delays on salary payments
