This is where you need to be real honest with yourself and think about whether this career is right for you. Ask a trusted friend or family member if you are the right fit for this job.
The first thing about you is you are not
just interested in “punching a clock” and getting a pay check – but in developing your skills and your career, and making a positive contribution to a business team and the community it serves.
You understand the challenges of operating a small business and welcome them as valuable learning and growing opportunities. You understand what it is to be a hard
worker. Also, all applicants will undergo mandatory background and reference checks. We hate surprises.
So are you still here and reading? Great – we’ve got a lot more to say to you.
You need to be computer literate and be able to quickly learn under pressure. You are going to multi-task everyday! We are going to roll back the curtain in our office and train one successful candidate on how to have a great career in Property and Casualty Insurance.
It matters a lot. You need to be outgoing and confident and exude energy and enthusiasm. If you have ever been described as shy, quiet, or introverted, this is really not
the job for you. You should enjoy people, talking to and helping people, and have a knack for motivating and inspiring them with your positive attitude. You are articulate. You should have a good sense of humor and a cooperative attitude. You need to show kindness, have patience and respect for others. You are ethical and honest, even when no one is watching. You are punctual. You are able to take the constructive criticism and correction without getting defensive or feeling “hurt” and discouraged. You look for solutions, not
excuses. You are an avid learner and extremely resourceful in finding solutions. You are a problem solver – not
a problem reporter.
Your Work Ethic
Since we will be paying you to work, this section is extremely important. You enjoy working and are grateful for opportunities to use your God-given talents and skills to make a positive influence and earn a living. You don’t view your job as an interruption of your life, but as a natural part of your life.
You understand you are not
getting paid just for being at work but for how you spend your time at work (i.e. the value you bring to the business). You understand that the reason the business exists is to make a profit and all
who work here (team members & owners) must make that their foremost priority. Otherwise, the business will not be able to pay or keep employees.
You are scrupulous about using the time you are getting paid for the purposes of the business, and not
for the purposes of your personal life (checking emails, texting, surfing the internet, Facebook, twitter, answering cell calls, etc.). Finally, you understand the risks a small business owner faces everyday that the business is open, and are cooperative with the decisions that they make, whether they suit you or not.
We do not
mean to be harsh, but it is what it is. We truly bust our tails at Heritage Insurance —
that’s why we need more help. We need someone who will be able to keep up with us. We don’t have the time or inclination to micro-manage you. We will clearly set our our expectations and remind you if you forget and if you fail to meet them. We will train you, and teach you more than you ever can imagine. As your knowledge grows and your book of business grows, so will your paycheck. We want you to be part of our team, and not just a worker here.
Finally, Our “We Will Not Tolerate List”
- Dishonesty – we will not stand for a hint of it.
- Out of control ego – there is no need for it (We are a team at Heritage Insurance).
- Negative Attitude – wrong type of work.
- Laziness – we all work hard here. You will too.
- Drama – we don’t have the time or energy.
- People who can not follow instruction.
- People who can not manage their time.
- Anyone "smart" or mean with a client – they are our present and future.
- Phoniness – I am direct. You should be too.
- People who stew over not being paid what they think they are worth – you are worth what you can find a job to pay you.
- People who see problems, not solutions — this is a business about solving problems.
- Whiners & Complainers – life is too short.
This Job is Not For Everyone!
