Apply today, Start work tomorrow!...But get a paycheck next month...and training 6 months later.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Dallas, TX (US)

ProsNo Experience or Education is required to come on board. You go through 3 tiers of interviews, but as long as you don't have a felony, you will be offerred a job. They will work with you every step of the way to ensure that you pass the state exam (about a 1-2 week study-cram). Then you are given a rebate (refund of exam and licensing fee) when you pass. Your computer, business cards, and other incidental biz expenses are credited to you and taken out of your paycheck, gradually.

ConsMust have abouth a 6-month business expense to live on. It will be at least a month before you will start receiving income. So you must pay for transportation and supplies. Leads are cold (luke-warm at best). Low name recognition of "Modern Woodment". Extensive 1-week District training in Rock Island, IL, is given after you have been on your own for about 6 months. The training was good, but very late.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive the District training immediately after the agent passes the state exam and BEFORE having the agent selling, unsupervised.
