Great training but tough commision based structure

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Don't go for it if you're not willing to invest the 1st year time and savings till your skills and sales curve start to pay off...very risky! training is great!




Comission based
Was this review helpful?

Constant learning and advancement of skills to become the best version of yourself.

A day in the office would begin with training classes for certain skills that need to be improved all the time. Training that is tailored to your needs and management support all new and rookie agents with whatever they need to become successful. Very supportive and fruitful environment for people to grow. Not a cut throat office where people are only there for themselves and out to beat each other. Most enjoyable part of the job is enrolling families in our benefits and the feeling knowing that this family is protected for life whenever anything happens to them. Hardest part of the job is the discipline and motivation you have to have for yourself to grow. No one is pushing and checking on you every hour to see what you've done. You need to be a workhorse when no one is watching you and when no one is breathing down your neck about how much work you need to do.

Dont work here!!

It clamed itself a insurance company and it kind of is. But it's more like a commercial marketing company which send out people to strangers' houses. The benefit plans don't make much senses and they will tell you it's easy to make money and you will be giving leads. But don't believe it. it's not true!!!it's still all cold leads!!

good job. bad management

you are promised the world during hiring. Management is typical salesmen who can't tell the truth to save their lives. Advancement is not based on performance. It is based on kissing butts.

Great Culture

It really is an amazing place to develop sales skills and make a good living if you have time to grind and master your craft. If you are only in it half way... This wont be the place for you. Overall, a great place to work!


If you work hard you can make really good money


If you dont have a strong work ethic... This is not a good job

Fast Paced

Need to be a self starter and good at sales. Management will provide training, but all expenses incurred on your credit card. Very process driven but can be difficult to maintain

Entrepreneur, you must develop you job. You need to pass difficult exams and study hard to get your license then you need to contact costumers , you salary is based on your customers

If you have the ability to work full commissions

If you have the ability to work full commission jobs than this will be a good fit with lots of room to grow. They give you the speech that what they want you to aim for is to become a manager and upwards and they do mainly focus on union leads so it is a lot easier to make money than any other insurance company out there.

a typical day at work is pretty easy going. I learned a lot while working in the company. The management is very hands on and they train constantly. Its a very diverse place and everyone gets along. The hardest part of the job was dealing with complaints from clients regarding their policies however, I did enjoy working with everyone to resolve issues. These are learning time.


you make your own time


stressful when it gets really busy

Great Company

Truly dedicated to protecting families through great permanent benefits. If you want a opportunity to get out of the 9-5 and make a real income, this is the place.


excellent compensation


training, hard to come by

Insurance Company

With a great manager, it is a great place to work. It is a place that really depends on your own desire to succeed in this field. That being said it is not for everyone.

Good for someone who has an entrepreneurial mindset

the compensation is great, but the downside is very long hours/days, and very little work life balance. the income is not stable either, it varies week to week.

A comfortable place of employment that will allow you to expand in many ways

AIL is on of the very few companies that will graciously reward its hardest working employees. While working at AIL i have grown exponentially, such as in my public speaking, managing myself and others or even the confidence in myself. The offices are always full of nice caring people that care about how you are and are willing to help make sure you are always working at your best potential. An average day involves being surrounded by experienced people that you are able to rally questions and information with that will help yourself and even the others around you.


Conveniently in metro town towers, easy access to food, entertainment, recreation, etc.


Dedication and hard work

Good possibilities

Good resources for starting a career , but bad execution at management and training. It is a soliciting company in denial

100% Commission with too many expenses

They have a great environment. Really this is an ideal place to get sales experience. You can make a over a grand a week, but paying for hotels and such can make the take home money relatively small. Ideal for beefing up your resume. Expect to make money, but not a profit unless you work very, very, very hard.


Flexible Schedule


Out of pocket expenses: hotels, gas, maintanence, food, work away from home

This company scammed customers by only selling small policies as part of larger policies to get customers to feel indebted and buy life insurance. This is one of the main reasons I quit.

great opportunity to enjoy job and advance as high as you are willing to work to achieve

You need to be a self starter with a passion to help people. Hours are typically nights and weekends which does match well with balancing family with work.


opportunity to grow and advance


poor hours
