New York Life / Awful company
I was contacted by a recruiter after submitting my resume through my university job placement website. I couldn't imagine our academic institutions would actually participate in such an outrageous rip-off scheme.
First of all, it took them 4 interviews and 2 'workshops' to finally get to the point. After all that waste of my time, I found out that the company doesn't offer a salary. It actually wants their employees to pay for their cubicle, phone line and 'technology use'.
There was some sort of BS about generous bonus system and extremely complicated corporate expense account, which could be used later on to cover your operating expenses. Of course the money for that account would be allocated 'based on your sales performance'.
Basically to break even, you needed to sell at least 6 policies ($1200) per week and that 'average' sales effort would supposedly yield about 40K per year. If you do less than that you wouldn't meet the quota and get no bonuses or any other goodies that they promise.
Oh, yes and fulltime employee status only comes after selling a certain number of insurance policies and then in 3 to 4 months all the other benefits(health, life, dental) will 'kick in'
Bottom line: to sell their insurance you'd have to pay their rent, buy their computers, devote 75hours per week of your time 'on average', and have passion for getting screwed.
