      Mediocre but a place to start

      Pros

      -Some really wonderful people work for this company -They will support you through your licensing process -A great introduction to the insurance industry -RRSP and DPSP

      Cons

      -They won't provide references if you apply for other jobs so plan to be here for a short time or the rest of your career -Fort St. John and affiliated branches - management had the maturity of a high-school clique. Gossip is rampant and anything personal you share with one manager will promptly be shared with the management team and used against you -They claim to be about career progression and diversity but progress is based on how well you fit into the clique - not necessarily skill. If you aren't a straight, white, oil patch wife be prepared to be excluded -Competitive sales environment means sometimes selling products that customers don't actually need -No training for products aside from ICBC -My manager consciously tried to take advantage of employees by claiming we are not eligible for overtime even after working a full shift over 40 hours - would not acknowledge her mistake when I showed her this was against BC employment standards

      Pros

      Always looking for ways to support employees in extra ways, especially during trying times (floods, Covid, wildfires) I only put a 4 rating because even the best can still do more!

      Cons

      Could do more for developing all employees using coaching, not just through performance management from the direct manager

      Good holiday and benefits amount when you get to use them

      They actually have to let you take your holidays and personal time. Usually the calendar is closed. Make you work weekends without a day off in leu

      Our branch is very supportive of each other, truly a team. All willing to teach or help the other. Lots of room and opportunity for advancement within the company and they pay for your licensing and schooling to get licenced.

      Cons

      Heavy workload makes for higher stress and the habit of working past closing
