Do I have to have previous sales or insurance experience?
No, not at all. We have a phenomenal training program. Through our training we can teach just about anyone to do this job. One must simply be willing to work hard, study hard to learn our business and be willing to be teachable. If you are willing to do those three things you will be a success here at Gridiron Financial Group.
Do I have to travel?
Travel is very limited here at Gridiron. There are 2 National Meetings a year that each sales professional is asked to attend and there are up to 12 weeks spread out during the year that we ask everyone to attend called “Push Weeks”. The purpose of these weeks is to reinforce and develop your sales and management skills.
When will I get my first paycheck?
Depending on how quickly you get your state required license in place, your first pay check could be in your account as soon as ten days to two weeks. If you are already a licensed agent, your first paycheck could be in your account within a matter of days. Also, an important fact about Gridiron that everyone likes is we pay you weekly.
What is my investment in order to get started?
The only investment on your part in order to get started with Gridiron is the cost of your specific state required license and your appointment fee. The cost of the license and appointment fee in each state varies, but speak to one of our recruiters for specifics in your state.
What type of insurance license do I have to have to work with Gridiron?
A Life, Accident and Health insurance license is the only license that is required to sell Gridiron products. It usually takes 3 to 5 days to take the pre-licensing class, then another day to take the test.
Do I have to come into an office each day?
No. We do have a meeting each Monday and Friday Mornings to kick off and close out the week but after that, we teach you to work around a schedule that provides you both flexibility and a basic structure of success.
Do you have a lead program?
Yes, we have one of the best in the industry. Even so, we still do cold call. Any successful sales professional in any sales career must be willing to cold call in order to build their business. Our system works. We will train you and teach you everything you need to know in order to be successful here.
How long will it take me to move into a management position?
Actually, we call it leadership. Our belief and philosophy is, “You can’t lead where you won’t go, and you can’t teach what you don’t know.” We all sell here at Gridiron. One can move into a Leadership position as soon as 4-6 weeks depending on your track (management vs sales) in the business. Each person that works with Gridiron will receive our Resources packet and Career Track that outlines your career path here at Gridiron in complete detail.
