Insurance Broker in Moncton:
"That working hard does not always mean you get the best pay."
Ask as many questions as you can and never stop learning. Keep on top of your work.

Insurance Broker in Peterborough:
"Get your education."
This industry is hush hush about who makes what for salary. It's not discussed and not allowed to be discussed. Get your education right away CAIB or/and CIP if you think you are going to go the direction of Underwriting. Go for interviews at other brokerages to see their reaction to your salary request. Negotiation of your wage is the only way that you will get a salary increase, there is no pay scale so you never really know what you are shooting for. The stress is high and the expectations are high.

"Educated Customer Service"
Pros: Every day there are new situations, no two days will be exactly the same. You will be continually presented with new situations that require research and discussion to provide the best coverage for your client.

"Caring for my clients"
Pros: Providing advice to people on how to protect their assets, and making sure the right coverage is selected. Work with many great people in the industry and in my office. Always learning and growing. Meeting new people.
Cons: Some customers still do not see the value in insurance, and feel as though they are ripped off. Having to explain escalating premiums to these types of people can be difficult.
