    "WFG is a good platform"

    5.0
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at World Financial Group part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - WSB is good platform to learn about financial system/products and WFG is a good distribution system - Clients have a flexibility/ multiple choice to opt their suitable financial products from Class One service providers based on their financial requirements - A company complied to the Federal and Provincial financial regulations - Good alternative to other set of part time job if you are really interested - Potential to earn a decent money even as a part timer - Excellent and long lasting career (part time or full time) for those individual who has a good aspiration /hardworking/patient and helping mentality with high level of ethics

    Cons

    - Not suitable platform for pessimist/negative thinkers - Wrong option for lazy guys - “ Be richer in an overnight” attitude individuals should not explore this opportunity - Not a better alternative for those who don’t want to upgrade their knowledge or hesitant to follow ethical practices - Neither a suitable option for those who want to live in their own comfort zone

    I have been working at World Financial Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Perhaps the individuals levying this type of criticism should delve into the definitions of "pyramid scheme" and "scam" , both of which are illegal activities. I am a licensed insurance and securities agent with the province of BC and work for a brokerage company that distributes financial services for Manulife, Invesco, Ivari, Aegon, TD, RBC, IAFinancial Group, Equitable Life of Canada and many more companies. So put your critical thinking hats on..do you actually think that the aforementioned companies would engage our company's services if we were an illegal enterprise? Would the governments of every province and the federal gov't license agents who are aligned with an illegal enterprise. WFG is the fastest growing financial services company in Canada and the largest service provider in Alberta. I love working in this company, great work environment, lots of positive support, mentoring, education and the ability to earn an income based upon my hard work . Do we actively look for business partners? You bet. And so does every company actively look for the best people for their available positions . This is career that very few people are aware of and the earning potential is unlimited. Is it for everyone, absolutely not, but for $130 you can test drive this career option with a senior partner and make your own call. One heck of a lot cheaper than a university course of study or a technical degree that you may or may not like nor find work in after spending thousands of dollars. OH and did I mention that you can work with our company part-time and earn a very decent second income , as well as residual income. Or , get this , you are self-employed and have all of the tax breaks that self employment brings, like writing off gas, insurance, cell phone expenses, trips etc.

    Cons

    You actually have to go to work and be disciplined, coachable and teachable. You are only paid if you are licenced in your province.

    Pros

    Positive people to be around Learning new things about insurance Part time

    Cons

    Great at first then the hype wears down after a while. Hard to find clients without looking like your begging for them to come. Essentially like a pyramid! But you help people and families. You start your own business and build your team and make residual income from your pyramid ( team members ) down down down such and such. Very repetitive personal life stories !

    I have been working at World Financial Group part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I joined for financial education @ first but now I love educating and helping families. And @ the same time earn good money part time while working my full time job.

    Cons

    It's a hard work but it's worth it. We give 100% to do our job why not do this part time with full time earnings.

    I worked at World Financial Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    the hype upfront is amazing... that's how we were able to lure people in

    Cons

    The reality is there is a 97% failure rate in this type of model. We sell insurance policies to the 'potential recruit' and later introduce that they can make a significant amount of money by joining either part-time or full-time. The bottom line is you can never be successful at anything that you only dedicate partial time and effort. After the Associates realize they're not earning the income that was promised to them, their upline are then left with the clients that the new recruit had help them generate.

    I worked at World Financial Group part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Made about $10,000/yr part-time Business tax deductions

    Cons

    Poor mentoring Overpriced fees: Winfund, email, E/o Insurance (almost half the cost when independent), office dues There are fees and cost of all the events which can net $0 at the end of the year Recruiting prioritized over financial knowledge Sexual harassment - denied the option to transfer offices Disability discrimination - denied being able to step down a contract to keep clients To many "Events" that never discuss the market and financial education Main focus is recruiting strategies around the industry

    I have been working at World Financial Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    When I met WFG I was struggling financially, the advisor I met with put a sound plan in place and helped me get out of debt, after being a Client for 2 years the economy took a downturn and my wages were cut. I started working as a broker with WFG part time to supplement my income. Again the company helped me from bankruptcy and possibly losing my home. Fast forward 2 years I have left my job and gone Full time with WFG, enjoying financial Freedom, and helping my friends and family get in a better financial shape.

    Cons

    There are a lot of negative people out there who spread misinformation. If you want to know the truth. Stop by one of the many offices in North America and attend the open house.
