    I don't think there are too many P&C agents who are active in the forum, but there are a few. Maybe they have been actually doing some work today and haven't seen your question yet. ;)

    You start out making what you make now, with a reasonable potential to increase your income. I don't see much downside here, if you will like the work that the agent will have you do (commercial is tough, but can be very rewarding).

    The only question I would ask is what happens if you move on before the draw is paid back? Is it treated as a loan?

    To me, it's far more about it being a fit personally. With the base salary, the commission level is decent.

    I'm not big on draws when you have a lack of experience on the sales end.

    Where are you located?

    If you are located in a state where American Family Insurance operates you may want to look into them.

    They will pay you a base, plus you get your commissions and help paying for your office. I think that depending on the state the base is between 3-4k per month.
