No Idea What They're Doing

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Modern Woodmen

Pros-You were able to create your own schedule and they were very flexible with accomodating different training sessions.

Cons-The fact they represent themselves as financial advisors is scary. They have no knowledge other than how to talk people up and make them feel like they know what they are talking about.
-They give no base pay to start out and the training they provide is inadequate.
-Their business model is to bring in as many people as possible, have them call all their friends and family, and whoever survives they enjoy the roll down from their comissions and who doesn't is not their problem.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop tricking innocent people into believing you know what you're talking about. Gain some type of knowledge of what your selling and stop trying to throw the product with the biggest commission at every client no matter their present situation.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
