Are you looking for a producer role in the Everett area with an established agency, with a good starting salary/comp plan, and an opportunity to become a partner in the agency in as little as 3 to 5 years? If so, then this could be your new home!
My client has had his agency for 7 years and is ranked #1 in WA for premium growth this year in both Personal and Commercial Lines, and is also ranked in the top 3% for premium growth in the country! The office is located in downtown Everett and has free parking. The agency has a robust marketing program and you will spend about 90% of your time in sales and only 10% in service. You will NOT be making cold calls. There are a number of internet leads, leads from various marketing and home show events, and lots of referrals. You can supplement with your own networking, referrals, and personal centers of influence. You can write personal and commercial lines, life, and related financial services policies. You will be supported by a CSR for all processing and service needs. Hours are in-office 8 am to 5 pm, Mon to Fri. You will be expected to write an average of 25 policies/month which is very achievable with the provided leads and established customer base.
Compensation is $20/hour base with commission on new business (varies with the type of policy written). At 6 months, you will also receive 5% of the agency new business commissions regardless of whether you sold it or not because the owner believes in rewarding the team. At 18 months, you will receive 1% of all agency renewal commissions regardless of whether you produced them or not. After you have 1000 policies in force, (about 1M revenue which is achievable by about year 3 to 5), you can become a Partner in the agency allowing you to earn equity in your policies sold. You will also have a generous 80 hours of PTO and paid holidays. Realistic1st year income is $55K to $60K+
If you do not have your P & C (Property & Casualty) and L & D (Life & Disability) insurance licenses, the agent will help you get them. The training program will work like this:
You will be paid $20/hour while you attend insurance school (40 hours) and then you will test for your license. Once you pass your P & C test and obtain your license, you will start your Carrier and agency training which will prepare you to learn product lines and how to work with the computer rating system. Training will take about one month, and you should be able to start quoting and selling policies by month 2 which will start you earning personal policy commissions. At month 6, the employer will reimburse you for all of your licensing costs (class is approximately $250 + licensing and finger printing for your P & C or L & D).
Candidates need to pass a background check and have no DUI’s, or bankruptcies in last 5 years, No job hoppers please. Candidates with past successful sales experience are preferred. Insurance licenses are a huge plus, but not required to start the job.
