Its simply not a good agency to work for. You have to have some understanding how agencies work to understand what to look out for!



The worst thing about them is the way they set appointments and the time consumption. Second, is the way they handle commissions and advancements, it simply not a good enviroment.



I've known several that tried them out, it basically a agency that throws out appointments like crazy with no attention paid to the agent that will run the appointments. This is meaning they slam appointments, many times agents I knew ran these appointments and many of the prospects didn't have a clue as to why they were there for. Which translates into a lot of Aces or no sales, why run appointments if you have little chance to close a sale? The agency doesn't care, its not their time, gas or stress so they slam appointments with no care for the agent.



They want your day to start at 7 AM, meaning if your first appointment is at 7am and its 50 miles away you are in for a long day, they'll book you three to five appointments spreading you out all over the map and your last apt. may likely be 7 or 8 pm. Now after you get home, expect a nasty message from your upline demanding you fax your daily results, which is another hour of your time.



This is what you can expect, its simply not a friendly enviroment. Plus outside of that, you face a lot of headaches once you decide to leave! Such as I do believe your commission advancements are really nothing more then loans via the Agency, which is really a headache! You don't own your book of clients which means technically the Agency owns your book, and those loans you quickly find out have interest due that seems to multiply once you decide to leave in a most amazing way. Basically these Agencies are out to capture Green Agents that don't know any better! While I never worked for this one, when I was Green I was stupid enough too join another one of these Agencies, name was NAA and never again! It was really a bad joke, just hate to see others fall into these traps that will lead only in one conclusion.

Rick, thanks for the heads up on Senior Healthcare Consultants.

I was set up for an online interview with them tonight and I think I will pass. While no one says SHC is outright evil the general consensus is that there is something better. Any suggestions?

A little back ground- I have 11 years of managing and selling in autodealerships. I am used to making good money, I can close soft or hard, and I dont mind travel. I don't use these boards too much so please respond to my email jmichaelnorris[at]yahoo.com

Hi Keith, I think Rick has spoken from the view point of an agent, who has been working for senior healthcare consultants . Senior Healthcare Consultants Inc. has earned quite a bad reputation in the way they treat its employees/agents. They are very demanding and may be the worst payer in the industry.



Hence, if you're planning to join them at any point of time, be prepare to commit yourself for enslavement.

Hi All,



  • If you're an agent with the Senior Health Consultants, most of your calls to them will go unanswered.



  • If you are a hardcore salesman and can close the sale at the first go, you may think of a career with the Senior Health Consultant. Otherwise, you may be wasting you time and therefore money.




However, Senior Healthcare Consultant Inc., has received good customer feedback for the service it offers and is ranking at a comfortable position with BBB.

Hi michael, have you come across the recent recruitment advertisement, published by Senior health care Consultants Inc. ?



I don't want to dampen your spirit but according to their own survey the experience auto dealers don't make the successful bunch of Senior Healthcare Consultants Sad

Senior Healthcare Consultants Inc. basically, is the marketing outlet of many health care providers, specialized in selling senior health care products. SHC targets only those customers who are more than 65 yrs. of age.



It is based in Irving, Texas and is a subsidiary of RJR Insurance Services Inc., which is a publicly traded company.



The SHC seems to apply stringent rules in appointing its consultants. May be that's the reason why many don't attain success with them.



Hope the information was helpful.

Hi goodwillhunter, you have written,

that is why, they only recruit people with the toughest mindset. They want only the self motivator in their team, and not the persons, who are shy of hardworks.



Keith, Senior health care consultants are highly legitimate and definitely not the scammers. They also sell very targeted product, tailor made to meet the healthcare requirements of the senior citizens. The supplemental health plan, offered by SHC, is highly recommended for seniors.



However, there were some complaints against Senior Healthcare Consultants , what Senior Healthcare Consultant Inc. is trying to clear-up fast. Hope it'll help SHC to restore back its good image soon.

My boyfriend has just done a few online interviews with SHC and is contemplating going to work for them. I just wanted some additional feedback on working for senior healthcare consultants . He was telling me about the company and he said he has to pay a certain amount of money to get started with the company and then he will be reimbursed for the costs. Also mileage isn't included? At the rate gas prices are now that is almost unheard of to send an employee anywhere without some sort of pay back for mileage. What are your thoughts on working for them?

Well anonymous, the final decision regarding joining the Senior Healthcare Consultants will depend upon you and your boyfriend. Remember, that you have to perform under mounting stress from SHC to close every deal. Also have to commute extensively for the appointments and that to for five days a week.



The money that they have asked for will cover the costs of,





  • Obtaining license

  • Policy materials and documents

  • Laptops and headsets

  • Miscellaneous




However, you should mull-over all the aspects concerning SHC before taking the final decision.
