Commission right through not for the faint hearted

Good opportunity...were by growth is determined by sales...stability is rare so if u are a school leaver ..this is good opportunity for you.It is very important that u work as a team...what i would often not like is how a district manager would fail to do her job but still a rep had to take a fall for it.if u want growth and stability these is no guarantee for you simply coz u are not guaranteed same salary monthly

Pros

Be your own boss.dont have to work hard but smart

Cons

To bad ull suffer if u don't have someone to assist you...coz u need motivation

Firstly i learned to deal with different types of people i used to to be shy when i grew up and the most hardest part in the job is lapses since we earn by commission bt the most i enjoyed if you get a business you earn lot of money

Always work,there is no comfort zone

Time management is very important,submit work on time and work hard before the 15th so you can earn your commission the following month the more you work the more commission you earn.

Innovation to grow the company is one element left behind.

I feel can be so much that can brew done to secure or improve the life of employees at avbob, the company is a great company but it has lot of gaps, to grown and communication with management level is Zero. After 100 years of Services you would think Avbob system is reach but not still lot of challenges company is going through, I think collaboration with Employees will help the company

Working as sales representative for the company is not a great experience, as there is no basic salary and there are claw backs as and when clients resign or cancel the policy.

Pros

Commission

Job work

Avbob is a good company, that think about people when coming to the services. Because it hired matriculants to go out and market their services to people who don't know anything about them, or those who don't have time to go to the offices, also to enjoy and know the benefits of the company policies.

Nice colleagues

Nice office, nice client package, but the brokers are way out of line and messes everything up for genuine AVBOB Reps, who must know Everything about the products etc and we got the bad end of the stick

Pros

Nice product

Cons

Unfair treatment for reps and brokers have No boundaries
