    They do belong to the same corporation though.

    I checked United American recruitment page. They do not look like MLM(American Income Insurance), but their compensation structure is similar to American Income Insurance one. I have not seen mention of base salary for their agents. Everything is on comissions. Nothing is wrong with that, but you got be be good at sales.

    I have received the same email. They were described to me as a debit company but it seems they are also changing to a regular insurance company. Debit company's are the one where the agent had to go out and collect the premiums monthly. I can't say whether they are legitimate or not but I get an email form them every couple of days it seems.

    This may be a recruiting deal where the emailer gets a few bucks for every warm body that shows up for the interview. I know that bankers life has started offering people money to get them bodies for their interviews.

    As with anything in life there is no easy road to anything. Any company promising six figures a year is probobly talking about an elite few who make that. Just realize that there are no "get rich quick" job opportunities that come in e-Mails. Yes you can make a ton of money in anything you do, but don't expect to make much at the beginning as with any job.

    The biggest advice that I can give to anyone is to not pay any attention to excessivly large income numbers or bonuses that a company offers. Yes they are obtainable, but only by a select few. Most people, in any line of work, will make less than $40,000 their first few years with exceptions of course. Don't let flashy numbers lure you into any job interview or into accepting any job for that matter. Just realize that in any line of work, no matter what it is, you are not going to get rich quick and you will only succeed if you are good at what you do and you stick with it for a good long while, like 5+ years.

    UA will bring you in for the interview and tell you you'll make a 6 figure income. In fairness, there are those that do.
    What the co. doesn't tell you is how much you will SPEND !! You are required to see customers in person, no matter where in the state they are. You can conceivably drive for 5 hours for a "let me think about it".

    I know that is the risk of sales and commission only jobs, but what got me was the emphasis so much on recruitment, and very little on retention and/or mentoring.

    I left UA before I went broke. The gas alone ate me alive. All expenses are on your dime.

    I heard a rumor that the co. was going all electronic, whereby agents would be required to have lap top computers. I priced lap top computers, and folks, they are a lot higher than the calculators you can find in discount stores for $1. (Again the agent's expense).

    Also, if a customer's check is bad or if he or she cancels, it goes against the
    agent. (An easy way of saying it is the AGENT'S FAULT !!)

    Now, the folks in the co. will tell you that the policies "sell themselves". They do not. It takes work, but it also takes money.

    If you can afford to be away from a steady paycheck for weeks at a time, then this is the job for you.

    if you can't afford to be without a paycheck, especially in these times, then I would recommend doing something else.

    The expenses are what I couldn't handle, ths, this "job" was the most stressful time of my life.

    Incidentally, you are not employed by UA, rather, you are an independent
    contractor.

    At first you are told that you're to "help people get affordable insurance."

    Then it is all about the money.
    I'm still unclear what the co's motive
    is.

    Re: United American Insurance

    I actually worked as an agent with UA. My sup was cool, he did train me how to cold call, sell on the phone and stuff. I didn't stick that long though due to unforseable issues. (No More Gas Money. lol) :errr:

    Btw, UA sells Health Insurance.
