Hi goodwillhunter, you have written,

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

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.

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. :D 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."
