Insurance Account Representative/Agent (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 March 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 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.
Virtual Call Center Agent Home Based (Former Employee) – CA – 18 February 2015
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 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.
State Farm - I work in our house super convenient and comfortable

Insurance Account Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 27 November 2014
I liked to arrive early to set up my day and to see what my priorities were.
I learned the importance of educating people to start investing in their futures.
We were a small office so we all worked along side each other help was never far and we were all busy.
I enjoyed the quick small talk that we would have during the day and also the ability get other opinions on clients situations.
The hardest part of the job was that it was never done; no matter how much work you did there was always one more call.
The most enjoyable part of this job was the people I met and was able to help whether is was part of a claim or information of how to help in a situation. Educating someone that actually appreciated the time I took to explain different products that are an important part of life and setting their future up because no-one had ever took the time.
The thank yous' and of course the commissions.
Winning office competions and getting lunch delivered
No real breaks, but of course when its busy you work and when its slow well you find somithing to do.
Account Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 November 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.

Work environment was pretty good. You often hear the company business strategy.
Co-workers were nice and you can feel that there is always a team spirit in the atmosphere. The hardest part of the job was to deal with outside vendor. The most enjoyable part of the job was to complete projects. You will get a sense of job satisfaction.
