I am thinking of them and would like to hear from someone that actually works with them? Thanks




Are you looking to consider working for senior healthcare consultants ? If you are a tough sales person and beat a challenger at every step, you can find this the right kind of opportunity for you. Best of luck!!

Did you go to work for them and if so do you like it so far? What has been your experience? I am thinking about them also

I worked for SHC for a little over a month. Let me be the first to tell you that they are not a scam but THEY DO treat you like a slave. I worked consistent 14 / 15 hr. days. Their training program is THE WORST. You have to pay $600 before they put you on the pre-set appointment program. The reason I say their training program is the worst is because they teach you NOTHING. It is a 3 day training course in their headquarters in Dallas and then after 3 days of training they throw you in the field with no preparation or anything. Personally I was "that guy" thinking that this would be a good thing...boy was I wrong. I have never been so pissed at a company for a lack of preparation of an employee. Then when you call them in between appointments they want you to tell them how it went, when you tell them how it went and ask them what you could of done better....all they say is "Just keep up the good work and you'll come around". WHICH IS A ABSOLUTE JOKE!!! Like I said the company is legit but they are a JOKE to work for...I absolutely WOULD NOT recommend them...unless you don't like spending time with your wife or kids....

I have worked for Senior health care consultants for going on 7 months. I am making around $700/mo in 1st-year renewals already. My first paycheck was 18 days after I started for $219.23. My 29th day my paycheck was $1738.22. My 37th day was $332.20. My next paycheck was my 58th day and that was for $2022.55. Etc. I average around $1400 or so a week, w. my expense reimbursement + bonus points for gas, I net around $1750/wk now. But, it took me literally over 8 weeks to get anywhere near steady income. I was in the hole for almost a month, but came out great b/c I stook to it. Take in my 1st year 3% renewals and and I am doing around $1900/wk, only getting better each month. W/o a doubt this time next year I will work half my hours (currently around 12-14 per day Tues thru Fri + avg 3.5 hours on Monday) and make an easy $125K+. Yep, it was really tough and I had my doubts, but I just kept going and it all came around eventually. You know, really, I like it more than the money b/c of the camaraderie I have delveloped w. my superiors and now, my 3 subs.... but most of all, I really, truly and honestly, KNOW I am doing a really great things for these sweet seniors I help (although some are not that sweet!). No, we do a super service and after you've past 4-8 weeks, you get the gig and everything falls into place. Look back, now looking in, it all seems worth it. Good luck all!

I work as a Home Health Care Aid, for the Elderly. I actually go into their homes. Very Happy Often, I make phone calls to Dr.'s offices, hospitals, etc., for them. It's frustrating to ask questions to one of the 'professionals' and them tell me, " I don't know."

I am sure not all of these places are bad to work for. There seems to be a lot of people working in the home health care business. I can see why you would be frustrasted SD. I have been hearing alot of "I don't knows from proefessionals in other types of business. I don't settle for that answer. I usually follow with "then connect me with someone who does know" or "well can you look into it and I will call you back in a couple hours?"...this way you aren't sitting there waiting for them to call and also they know they will be dealing wiht you again so they need to find you some answers.

When I DO make these phone calls, and I DO ask for someone else ( if I'm NOT getting answers..), most of the time I get, "well I'm sorry but the person you need to talk to is not available at this time." I tell this person that I will call back and when is a good time to do so. I don't take "no" for an answer, either. I just keep calling until I get some kind of answer.

I can see your frustartion in this. I have to smile to myself because in a way I have been dealing wiht people like this and Lori's little quote keeps coming to my mind "the squeeky wheel always gets the grease." A really wise comment. Try asking for the persons voice mail and then fill it up.

I'll tell ya, if THIS can get me frustrated, I just couldn't imagine how frustrated my 'clients' (Elderly) would be if they had to try and 'handle' these types of issues themselves. One of my clients, I KNOW FOR A FACT, would probably just 'die' if he was given the 'run-around' like I get sometimes.

I am thinking about your comment about elderly people getting frustarted and am picturing my ex mother in law...Gosh thats one person feathers no one wants to ruffle. I think it is good that an elderly person has a family member or at least someone to jump at to the plate for them.

PostPosted: Tue Nov 18, 2008 3:57 pm   Post subject: New rules from CMS  

I just took a test for Welcare. The test involved new rules when contacting senior and most of the new rules seemed like they were framed to counter the marketing practices of senior health care associates. It is a bad company in my opinion anyway and the new CMS rules will probably eliminate their call center. This is good for the seniors that they call on.

I did work for the company and got out when I saw enough to say "this is not right"

Good for you, SHANE. 'Our' Seniors have a hard enough time dealing with what they have to deal with ( Health, Life Insurance,etc.) then to get MORE irritated about something else. Sometimes Health Centers,etc. don't make it easy for them, that's for sure.

I too commend you SHANE. I think our seniors are taken advantage of just too often.

I have seen all the talk about SHC. Are there other more reputable or reasonable players out there if I was looking to get into the specialized area of Senior Health Care/Medicare supplemental products sales? Or are they all about the same?
