    In my opinion, getting involved with companies like American Income Life, Altig International, and the like, is a very bad idea. I strongly recommend you read two threads on for more information on these companies before you even consider going in for an interview:

    "American Income Life Is A Scam" Income Life

    "American Income Life is a Fraud" Income Life

    Unfortunately, I was one of the gullible ones who worked for this company for a short while, and I can confirm that the many negative comments written on these two threads are realistic. I wish I would have done my research ahead of time.

    If you want to know how this company is set up and why it is next to impossible to succeed there, have a read of the below site, too. In my opinion, as a past "employee" of the company, it provides an uncannily accurate description of how things work there:

    Spread the word to others! Do your research before you take a job with American Income Life! If you still go for an interview after all, make sure you ask all the questions listed on and get everything in writing as suggested.

    Just trying to help.

    If anyone new is on this board one of the best questions you can ask a recruiter or manager during an inverview is to detail a typical day after you're hired and trained.

    The question is simple: "After I'm trained and it's Monday morning can you walk me through what my day should consist of?"

    There's simply no clever way around this answer if you're running a turn and burn outfit. The reason is your day consists of nothing. They expect you to contact friends and family and supposedly branch out from there.

    Also beware of group interviews and any interview where you're not grilled over your resume, goals and what you can bring to the company. Almost all job scams have one thing in common; the interview is a sales pitch designed around how much money you'll make and how much their top reps are making.

    It might seem inticing when they offer up proof that their top rep makes $500,000 a year. But what they're not telling you is they hire 5,000 reps a year 4,950 don't last 3 months.

    Forum Not Working Right Folks

    I went back on to see if there were anymore posts. There was a message from one of the moderators that said: "Forum Not Working Right Folks, I have no idea why we can't post or read any of the threads. I have been trying to contact the owners to let them know. will be back to normal as soon as possible." Hopefully, this will be fixed in the next day or two.

    I talked to a sales mgr. a couple of years ago. He wanted me to drive from Columbia, Mo. to west side of St.L, 3 times a week. Thats 2 hours 1 way. He was such a tool.

    Thats reminds me of my first day of training with Combined Ins. The manager had to leave early that day to drive to a meeting out of state.
    We started at 9:00 am and quit at 5:00 pm he told me "that was a half a days work". I thought he was kidding. He wasn't. On an average day I left for work at 8:00 am and got home at 10:00 pm. I also spent most of the day on Saturday and Sunday on the phone setting appointments. All for a meager $400- 500 a week.
