    I worked at American Income Life (Less than a year)

    Pros

    some of the best reasons for working at AIL Canada is that your supervisor invests in your development, training is provided. I received constant feedback which helped me be successful at my job

    Cons

    The downside would be repetition. The role involved screening candidates all day. It would get monotonous.

    I worked at American Income Life full-time

    Pros

    Flexible in that you can decide to take time off when you want/can afford it.

    Cons

    The only way to be successful at this commission based position is to sell people more than what they need. There is a lot of travelling and going to people's homes can be uncomfortable/unsafe.

    I worked at American Income Life full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment. Whenever I needed help learning new things, or any work related advice in the office there was always someone there to guide the way. Training was very hands on and efficient. Before American Income Life Canada, I have never worked at a place where everyone- no matter the job title, was considered equal. If you set yourself a goal, management would help you reach it.

    Cons

    If unwilling to reach new goals or actually work, you won't get anywhere with any company. I only saw this twice while working at American Income Life Canada. If you work hard you get rewarded and acknowledged which myself and previous co-workers really appreciated!

    Advice to Management

    Ignore the negative comments, you guys were fantastic! Only reason I left was to return to school, you may see me apply again in the future.

    Pros

    Growth potential that never ends. Listening to mentors and attending training classes will ensure you are successful in this company. Unlimited resources. Positive work environment. Never ending earning potential. If you get the opportunity to have the chance to work with this company I suggest you give it a chance.

    Cons

    Long hours but worth the hours. Work always is enjoyable and never negative so the long days are an amazing experience.

    Advice to Management

    Never stop leading by example. Probably the best management team in any career opportunity
