$36,000 start with 90 day review and monthly bonus
August 01, 2017
Are you interested in working for a solid established company, with stable Mon to Fri hours/no weekends, with salary plus bonus and vacation?
If you have good people skills, excel at talking to people over the phone, have stable work history, and want to learn the insurance industry, my client wants to talk to you.
My client is a well-established insurance agency and has been around for 40 years. They are conveniently located in the Mill Creek, WA area and are close to public transportation. The owner is growing and wants to add two additional inside sales/customer service trainees to his staff. This is an entry level role. Compensation consists of a base salary and bonus program, with a 90 day salary review/increase. This is a W2 position, not a 1099. You will not be cold calling or going door to door. You will be trained by the agent and will learn in-house computer systems, work with established policy holders, do account reviews, and add new lines of coverage as needed. You will be selling/servicing all personal lines policies: auto, home, umbrella, RV, boats, jet skis/water toys, and life/financial products.
This is a nice, family-friendly office. Hours are Mon to Fri 8:30 to 5:00 pm. This is a full time, permanent role. Successful performance should earn you a monthly bonus of $600 to $800 on average in addition to your base salary. This agent pays some of the highest first year commission splits in the area across all coverage lines.
The position requires you to have WA P & C and L & D licenses when you start.
How insurance licensing works:
If you are not already licensed, there are weekly local classes that are available for licensing or you can take the classes online. You need 20 education hours for each part of your licensing, so 80 hours total. Then you take the WA State tests (one computerized test for the P & C, and one for the L & D). You get your results on the spot, and if you pass, they obtain your digital finger prints, and submit you for licensing and background check (no DUI’s or Felonies). Your official license is emailed to you after that. Once you are fully licensed, you will start working at the agency. Note: the client will present you with an offer that will be contingent on you obtaining your licenses.
Backgrounds that are good fits:
Candidates should have stable (no job hopping) work history in either sales or customer service/retail, have fast computer skills, be a quick learner, and be able to communicate well in writing as well as over the phone. You need to be able to talk about complex insurance coverages in an easy to understand manner. Your role is a trusted adviser, not just an order taker. Candidates will need to pass a criminal background check prior to starting.
To apply, email your resume or call 425-298-0278. The client is looking to hire 2 people ASAP due to growth.
