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

Working in the sales department is slightly more difficult. The pressure and being paid commission is not ideal. The training provided looks merely at the theory side without looking at the practical side.
Pros
Free Job Training
Cons
No basic salary for sales representatives

I prefer a more office based & environment where lead generation is easier & more approachable. I prefer working with mixed races, ages & genders. Great opportunity though to grow in the financial advisory field.

In the mornings I go in to submit new applications and do client inquiries about existing policies. In my line of work I have learnt team work and speaking freely and openly with co-workers.Being able to work independently and in a group. The team leaders and management are very helpful and they couched and mentored me in understanding the insurance industry, dealing with clients and in any part that i didn't understand they were there for me. The hardest part of my day is scouting and finding new clients and the most enjoyable part is the team work activities that the company occasionally has.
Pros
Team work and working environment
Cons
not being able at times to meet targets and deadlines

Not challenging, it is not in line with my career choice. I do a lot of customer prospecting, selling insurance products. It is the work outside office, lot of travelling and requires good presentation and marketing skills. I am managing to deliver the minimum targets, but I always feel there is more that I can do in the line of work which represent my choice of career.
Pros
none

A typical day at work would be to go to markets of my choice or the ones that i have been allocated by my manager. I would probably visit two to three markets before noon prospecting for most of the day. Then go to the office to capture the business i have for the day. Follow up on queries. Do lead and follow up. I have learned to be responsible and productive since this is commission only job. There's a strong culture of productivity. The hardest part of the job is when u don't have leads and don't have to start for the day. The most enjoyable part of the job is that its flexible in terms of time management and there's no limit of commission to be made,
