I have been working at Godfrey Morrow Insurance full-time (More than 10 years)
The employees (not management) and not those who have a horrible, horrible, sense of power (IE the person who orders office supplies) are great to work with. They definitely deserve more for what they give and would be rewarded far greater at any other employment opportunity. In fact there are employees there who are making more money that have only worked there for less than a year than those who have been grinding it out for the last 3-4.
Management. - Not trained, bullies, stubborn, literally lacking in business knowledge, no idea on how to market, train, or retain. The office administrators (people who sit and pretend like they know what they're doing and make everybody's live miserable) are some of the funniest people you'll ever encounter. They're a bunch of old crows, impossible to please, ignorant, and cannot own any responsibility what so ever.
Advice to Management
Sell the brokerage to someone that will do right by your clients, before you end up losing all your good employees and or clients. In fact stop buying new books from other brokerages as well, you can't properly service the ones you have, why add on more?
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Godfrey Morrow Insurance (Calgary, AB) in October-2016.
The interview was casual and very comfortable. I very much appreciated the change in questions from the regular strict interview style and it was evident Godfrey-Morrow was looking for people with expertise in customer service with personality. I also admire they take time to ensure the right people are hired and not to rush into filling a position.
