American Income Life — ail is a fraud!
I was hired as an agent with a life insurance company called american income life about three weeks ago. after laying out about $490 for licensing and travel up to denver for a week, I started field "training" — without any compensation. during this time, in the midst of my unscheduled and unpaid 12-14 hour days, I consistently witnessed agents lying to prospective clients and prospective new hires. they also require new agents to learn various scripts, word-for-word, before they would release us on our own to start earning income. these scripts were also very misleading in many ways. needless to say, I had some serious problems with this way of doing business...
So, I confronted the issue with my field trainer. his response was simply a pathetic attempt at justification. I even called my dad and asked his advice on how to confront the situation. [that was almost a once-in-a-lifetime thing!] I decided i'd play their game until I could get out on my own, then I would conduct my business in an honest and ethical manner. what a concept!!!
I didn't bring it up again with any managers until after a week and a half in field training. I did, however, make the mistake of mentioning on various occasions to fellow trainee agents that I was not happy about being forced to be dishonest each time I came in contact with a prospect. they seemingly had no issues with it, as they obviously complained to our manager about it.
Then two days ago, I arrived in the office after lunch. louis, my 20-year-old, money hungry manager, tells the other two new agents to leave his office. so i'm left there alone with him as he asks me straight out if I want to work there anymore. I had mixed thoughts on the matter, so I said yes, however, I feel there are some serious issues that need to be addressed. we then talked a few more minutes about all these issues, only for louis to conclude that I was a negative influence on the other trainee's and the office as a whole. and I wasn't willing to work hard enough. [this stems from the fact that I had a serious problem with being dishonest... and because I was unwilling to arrive each morning promptly at 8 am and stay until 9:45 pm; with no compensation.]
I was then impolitely asked to leave because I was unwilling to accept their way of doing business. so, needless to say, not only am I out a job, I just laid out almost $500 for a job that no longer exists. not to mention wasting almost an entire month! you have no idea how badly I desire to see a few life insurance policies paid out... I want to tell everyone I come in contact with about this company, and to make sure you never do business with this organization. you work too hard to waste your money.
I am personally beginning an honesty campaign. something they cannot even comprehend! it goes against their very nature!!! assist me in this fight!
