What do consumers say about Senior Health Care Consultants?

Users in the community have put forth their views about the company. Some seem to be unhappy with the way they handle commissions and advancements when it comes to play as an employer.

Complaints against Senior Health Care Consultants:

Agents are particularly dissatisfied with the way they lay out their daily work. According to them they:
  • Put too much pressure on agents to meet sales targets.
  • Set immense targets for the agents.
  • They are not planned in their working.
  • They have also earned the reputation being the worst payer in the industry.
  • They do not answer calls made by their agents.

However, customers have given good feedback about the service they provide and have a comfortable ranking with BBB. One of our community members says that since SHC hires hardcore salesmen, only those individuals with the toughest mindset can work in this company.

My situation was like yours. I didn’t last as long though. I ran out of money and had to get gas money wired to me to get home.

I don’t know how long ago you left them, but if you owe them any money for the pre-set appointments they are just going to take it out of your bank account.

The first time they took money my account was negative so the bank reversed it. The odd thing was they “accidentally” took $20.00 more than what was owed. Several months later they decided to take the money again, because it wasn’t taken out the first time. Yet again $20.00 was overcharged. Why would they do this? I have not seen the refund check SHC said they were sending.

Below is the original email, when I asked Mr. Corder to provide me with a copy of the letter I actually signed, he could not, but offered to send me a computer time stamp of when I electronically signed the agreement. He has yet to provide me with that information.

The email:

Per the contract that you signed before coming on board with our company (see attached Page 2, Section 4), we have drafted the bank account you submitted to us to collect the unpaid balance on your commission account with SHC (see 2nd attachment for your last statement with us). However, we mistakenly drafted your bank account for $20 more than what was actually owed. The correct amount should have been $136.00. We apologize for this error and are sending you a physical check to the address we have on file for you to correct this matter. While we are very disheartened that SHC was not a fit for you, we do wish you the very best in your future endeavors and will gladly render a high recommendation for you as reference to your ability and character should you need us in that capacity.

Thank you sincerely for your efforts, and again, we wish you the very best.

The bottom line is, working for SHC is like working in an anthracite coal mine. The product is desirable and top notch. No one can take issue with the quality of the product being offered. But what SHC does to its agents in the field is every bit as tyrannical and outrageous as what coal companies used to do its laborers.

There were no easy or well-paying jobs in a coal mine outside of upper management. Men worked long hours and nothing they produced was ever enough. The men worked seventy or eighty hours a week but were paid poorly because that ensured they were indebted to the company, in fact, so broke that they had no money to move out of town and make a new life elsewhere. The workers knew how poorly they were treated, but they knew any efforts they would make to organize for better pay or conditions would be put down savagely, and the company would stop at nothing to ruin a worker who dared to confront the company's injustice and poor working conditions.

If you want this kind of life, however briefly - if you want to feel the 19th century nostalgia of being overworked and destitute - if you want a near totalitarian control over your life, then I advise you to run, not walk, to your nearest telegraph office and get yourself in the next cattle call interview to be a Senior Healthcare Consultant. I guarantee they'll take you, since you're paying $599 or perhaps even $999 for the experience, not including travel to Dallas and lodging.

And when you inevitably fail, some weeks or months later - when you succumb to the financial devastation of paying for SHC's often worthless preset appointments three or four hours from your home, paying for the gas, tolls, and hotel bills to run the intentionally remote appointments - when the daily mandatory teleconferences starting at 6am, the incessant badgering, demands and criticisms of your upline, the 14, 16 or even 18 hour workdays finally takes its emotional toll on you and your family - when you receive in return barely half of street commission, and likely nothing weighed against your expenses - when all of this brings you to leave the company, you can comfort yourself with the happy realization that SHC now owns all the fruits of your hard labor and will profit off of your foolishness for years to come.

I'm glad that this site is still up and running, because it looks like SHC paid off Ripoff Reports. Hopefully the word will get out there eventually, if not to the Texas Department of Insurance, at least to prospective agents. The old time fat-cat coal companies eventually crumpled under the weight of their own hubris. Let's hope history repeats itself.

truth and consequences,

Best summary of all time. I "worked" for them five years ago and the experience still burns me. Amazing that it has gone on for so long but nothing has changed. Worst of all I was never paid what the pitiful amount that I was owed.
