What do consumers say about Senior Health Care Consultants?

Users in the community have put forth their views about the company. Some seem to be unhappy with the way they handle commissions and advancements when it comes to play as an employer.

Complaints against Senior Health Care Consultants:

Agents are particularly dissatisfied with the way they lay out their daily work. According to them they:
  • Put too much pressure on agents to meet sales targets.
  • Set immense targets for the agents.
  • They are not planned in their working.
  • They have also earned the reputation being the worst payer in the industry.
  • They do not answer calls made by their agents.

However, customers have given good feedback about the service they provide and have a comfortable ranking with BBB. One of our community members says that since SHC hires hardcore salesmen, only those individuals with the toughest mindset can work in this company.

Yea..SHANE, that IS good news. I mean, I'm trying to look at it as a '3rd Party' point of view. Ya see, I'm a Personal Care Aid and I work with the Elderly. Most of the time, I'm answering their phones for them. So, when I getting a call from a Health agency, etc. , it's up to my 'client' whether or not she wants to take the call. And if she DOES take the call, hopefully he/she will not get 'flipped out' with all that is being said to her. I've had agencies call my clients and talk about SEVERAL 'products' at one time. They ( the clients) get REALLY stressed out.

Certainly we too would love to hear a success story. RR, are you an agent of SHC? Maybe you would like to share your success tale with us on this board.

SHC, like any large marketing organization is going to receive a lot of bad publicity from people who didn't make it. There are offices in many different states, and the marketers (just like all of us agents) are simply people. They are under pressure to set appointments, so expect a few appointments that may not really be ready for you...and there may be some no shows. However, in my experience their agents receive 4-6 appointments a day and they do try to keep them as geographically close as possible. Most of their sales focus on Medicare-related you will be very busy from Nov 15th to March 31st. There are many new CMS regulations and the payscale has been drastically decreased this year. There is another agency that offers most of the same (preset appointments, etc.) called One Force and I'm sure you can google it.

As far as not paying for mileage, it is a commission only job as are most in this type of insurance. You're not paying for leads, but you are paying for your own travel expenses. You can have a great day and make 400-500, or you can have a bad week and make 200-300. This is true in any sales environment and it may not be right for you.

Although they are setting your appointments, you still have to be a very motivated and driven individual to succeed. You will find that many agents prefer to see the people they choose, and some of the preset appointments are not very well qualified. If you need more specific information about anything, let me know!

Hello everyone!! I've been away for a while...Military school. Anyway....I'm a bit 'fuzzy' on this Healthcare thing. Can you get insurance, for the Elderly, from this?..or is this just products that the Elderley may need?

I have my insurance license and was considering working for SHC but it really sounds like the company and products seem to be good but the crazy schedule and mistreatment isn't something I really want to sign up for. I already am selling insurance with large carrier and not doing well. Just what I want to do is quit where I am to get put into a meatgrinder!!!!! I am glad I took the time to research this company.

WOW...I just found these posting and seen everyone's information regarding SHC. I also just sent them all my paperwork and my $600.00. I'm to new to the insurance industry. I got my adjusters license in Sept worked IKE and realized that I could not take the heart ache and devastation for months at a time. I'm about to take my exam and was headed. I researched different areas of insurance & would like to work with the senior market. We'll now I'm kinda freaked out after seeing this information. I'm a hard worker, have no travel limitations and no kiddo's at home. With that said I just left a company that had some shady practices, 6 figure income EVERY YEAR and ya worked your butt off for it but eventually the bad out wade the good, NOT SCARED OF THE WORK BUT DON'T WANT THE SHADY PRACTICES. I just can't see myself going back into that environment. If anyone works for them now/recently I would be thankful for any insight on SHC. I still can jump ship if everything this forum says is true. I can be reached at deenasmith13[at]

Don't do it...don't do it...don't do it. There is no way a new person can succeed unless you are a hardcore salesperson. Long drives no matter what they say during recruitment and the leads don't pan out.
