"I started my insurance career with another company doing property and casualty, but was not at all happy with the lack of support or communication. Was hesitant to continue in that field, but have found that Colonial is a fantastic company to work for. Not only do they offer valuable products to protect peoples' livelihoods plus great customer service, but they also are extremely supportive of their agents."

"Great products but compensation too unrealistic to attain."

What do you like about working at Colonial Life?

"The great products and services we offer to employees and their families."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you are reliant on yourself as the sole means for income, beware. Building your book of business takes time and you are responsible for all aspects of the sale, before, during, and after as a 1099 employee."

What don't you like about working at Colonial Life?

"1099 status. I cannot support myself with its pay structure. Time is not on your side. The clock is ticking as you train yourself and try to make a sale."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Please offer realistic compensations based on time and efforts of agent's work ethic. Currently, thegreatest compensation structure is slanted towards those doing the least amount of work."
