    Hello , many years of selling life insurance in another area of United States
    Wife recently accepted a job in Miami

    My book of biz is far away and I considered looking to work for someone until I get established
    In area

    Mostly all I see for ads is seeking health insurance for a call center

    These must be off exchange and I heard some stories about them

    Anyone work at these ?
    Know someone who does ?
    Previously worked ?

    Any info is greatly welcomed

    Thank you very much

    I've worked at a few of these before. The ones I've worked at sold on and off exchange but pushed short term plans with ancillary's since those make more money. Everyone knows each other for the most part. The key is finding the room that fits you. Schedule, Leads, environment etc. If your looking to work at one temporarily beware of signing over your appointments. You probably will not get released regardless of what happens. Just beware, you can make fast money obviously but the headaches may not be worth it.

    Is the office in Fort Meyers? If so then it may be TZ insurance. Their not a bad company but push mostly FE products. The good news is you don't have to worry about leads or any other of that crap. The bad news is that they are more interested in putting a warm body in a seat at times, their not that interested in promoting agents, providing training or other things. You will top out at $17 an hour plus whatever bonus you make. Good agents normally stay for about 2 or 3 years for the reasons I stated. Bad agents are normally out the door in less than 1.

    CMS insurance is in Florida. I am working with a GA in Michigan and I know they are under us here. They are pretty big in the Ind/Medicare scene in Florida. I believe mostly Medicare though.
