flexible working environment that has an excellent culture. management tends to have an open door policy and they promote creative thinking flexibility enables you to determine your own hours and working on commission means that you can determine your own hours, renumeration is very good and they promote upskilling their employees as well as career advancement

there was a time when a new system was introduced and it kept on freezing and that affected our sales. so we had to approach management to try and work on a fall back mode and use the old system so that we at least make sales for that particular week unlike leaving work with Zero sales

Working in the financial sector is quiet stressful yet fun, working with a team or alone especially when dealing with clients is uplifting and exciting as you meet the diverse public, deal with people from different parts of the country and sometimes you interact with foreigners. I have learned to accept, respect and appreciate every human being and treat them equally no matter what their bank balanced revealed. The sometimes not so great part of my job was explaining to a client that he /she cannot afford a product because of affordability or other reasons, to see disappointment in their eyes really makes me uncomfortable.

It was Wednesday afternoon when I thought I was gonna go home only with 1 sale but just before I could knock off I got a call from a client asking for activation of his insurance as he was taking delivery of a car at the dealership but now the challenge was that the client was going to be in a flight for almost an hour and now I had to wait till the client could talk to me at about 7:30pm as per his request, morale of the story patience is virtue, because my knock off time was 4.30 but I was patient enough to get what I want. I learned to sell different Multiple Insurance Products for different insurance companies. I learnt how important is to comply with TCF outcomes. the management style is good there is a team leader for a team of about 4-6 members which makes easier for us to get through to the manager. and there is a line manager. the hardest part of the job is the fact we dont get the same kind of treatment which is demoralising. The most enjoyable part is that we get accolades if you work hard.
Pros
trips to adventurous places
Cons
Policies cant be amended ( change of start date on the policy)
