OK.. the basic google research has been done. Here's a few questions and forgive me ahead of time, the answers may be obvious.
This company is actively recruiting FE agents(along with funeral preneed). I've listened to a few calls and they repeatedly say, "we are employees of the company(SNL) -- you will NOT be an employee."
Is this considered an IMO
? Is it captive?
One of the main selling points of them being an "employee" is it's their "job" to help you/agents. A direct Mgr, office mgr, any support staff will be available at any point while visiting with a client. They stressed - "not like the others" .. who are mavericks and pick and choose who they will work with.
They pointed out the pitfalls of the IMOs bringing on 50-100,200 nationally hoping a few will stick. Apparently with their structure, although sales has a natural turnover rate, they tend to keep agents due to the 'one on one' nature of training they provide.
AP numbers weren't shared but they dismissed others who offered 80% so it's higher. They have a lead program as well.
My first thought is - what a great opportunity for a new person. My second thought is I haven't heard anything else about yet...
They are "employees.. Available at all times.. renewals.. publicly traded.. on going training etc .. but somehow I get the feeling agents get screwed somehow because they make it very clear YOU ARE NOT EMPLOYEES BUT WE ARE..
I don't know..
