Enjoyed working with most of the staff
Commercial CSR (Former Employee) –  Medicine Hat, AB12 May 2014
Reviewed list of upcoming renewals and prepared the appropriate documents for the commercial brokers; learned to use different systems and gained a bit of an insight into commercial insurance. The manager that hired me was very knowledgeable and easy to work with/for. It was a very relaxed atmosphere to work in but we still got the job done. My co-workers were approachable and open to questions as needed. Management changed and the whole atmosphere of the office changed....it wasn't as enjoyable to go to work every day. The most enjoyable part of the job was accomplishing what was put before daily and talking to a variety of people throughout the day,
Pros
Everyone got along and worked well together
Cons
Change in management styles; job was eliminated due to lack of work

Commercial Sales
Commercial Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB2 February 2018
Young atmosphere, paid training, and good place to learn insurance very quick.

Unrealistic sales targets, very low base salary which doesn’t increase even after years of service. Very very high turnover which makes this a toxic work environment as there are constantly people leaving, and even customers notice that different people are calling them every year.

Good to learn insurance but not somewhere to spend a career as there is no opportunity for advancement.
Pros
Can make lots of money
Cons
Bad management, low base salary
