Hard working results in manageable salary

The more application you get the more production you do for the company. Easy communication with clients and being friendly at all times, remember always keep smiling

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.

Pros

You do not have clock times.

Cons

You work at your own pace. No work, no pay

The company is fair

The company need to provide the representative with laptops/allow reps to buy their own laptops and uploaded with production application so that the reps can help clients easily to avoid checking by doing phone call to the office.

It's a great company with good reputation, growth is guaranteed if persuade,

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

Fun and you will also have to be very active

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

Pros

brought my own lunch

Cons

the hours depended on how many policies i sold a day

Productive and exciting workplace

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.

Pros

Interacting with different people on a daily bases

Cons

Unspecified working hours

Fun only when you make lot of commision

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.

Pros

Great commision

Cons

No client no salaries

Consistency, Co-operation and Harmony

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.

Pros

Incentives

Cons

Delays on salary payments
