I was in a banassurance role before. During my tenure I wished I was an agent instead as the commission is terrible. The targets set are unrealistic as well alongside with the longer working hours.

The trade off to a fixed pay isnít worth it imho. Best to leave the industry when youíre young

Honestly working Long hours is not a problem with me. 7 days/6days a week i am used to it. But if it does not relate to results, then there’s no point. At least i get a fixed pay In banking . As an agent, it’s much worse. Yes sure commission are good. But in terms of sustainability? It’s a huge issue.
