Insurance Account Representative/Agent (Current Employee), Edmonton, AB – March 10, 2015
This job was a great start after I graduated university, unfortunately it falls flat in advancement.
All I can do is sell more, sell more and sell more.
It was a great learning experience collaborating – more... with underwriters and adjusters to meet clients needs.
My colleagues and boss were understanding when I was sick and had to attend to an family emergencies.
I loved building relationships with clients and having those people ask for me. It felt great that I was doing a good job and they appreciated my service.
There were times when clients could be difficult but I learned skills that were helpful in calming them down when they were frustrated. Insurance isn't an easy business but there is reward when you help a client.
I had hoped for more structure in the office, it was very disorganized at times. – less
Virtual Call Center Agent Home Based (Former Employee), CA – February 18, 2015
Pros: state farm - i work in our house super convenient and comfortable
Cons: not that good compensation
It has been a challenging work for me in State Farm. I developed patience during phone calls because some clients will say bad words over the phone and I even get insulted with some customers. But these – more... doesn't stop me from the job because I took it as a challenge. The more I get "nos the closer I get yes." I did enjoy my job because I got many clients and I really enjoy communicating and dealing with them. – less

Account Representative (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – November 11, 2014
My manager has excellent management skill overall and we have a great team work culture in place. They do provide you a full training section and 1 month in house training while you are performing your job. It makes you feel you have a team back you up. However, the workload is just way too much to handle and low pay. It is a great opportunity to learn and start your career.

Receptionist (Former Employee), Thorold, ON – December 18, 2013
Pros: fair employer, very nice office, i was respected, rate of pay was acceptable
Cons: trying to calm irate customers and justify why their rates had changed
i worked as a receptionist and enjoyed my daily duties. Some clients were difficult as most complaints involved rates, increases, and dissatisfied with the outcome of their claims. It was a Mon to Fri – more... job, 9-5 with no overtime ever. My employer was a mild mannered person who was very fair with us and defended us against clients who tried to abuse us in any way. Unfortunately, i was laid off due to lack of work at the time. – less
