About You ...

This is where you need to be honest with yourself and think about whether this job is right for you ...
Ask a trusted friend or family member if you are the right fit for this job. You are NOT just interested in just “punching a clock” and getting a paycheck-but developing your skills and your career. You are interested in making a positive contribution to a business team and the community it serves.

So, are you still reading? Great. There's a lot more to say...

Your Skills ...

You need to be computer literate and be able to quickly learn under pressure. As “Director of First Impressions” you are in many cases the first person a prospect or client meets in person from our office,. A first impression is a LASTING impression, therefore, you MUST be professional in appearance, including how you speak and act.

Your Personality ...

It matters-a lot. You are outgoing and confident and you exude energy and enthusiasm. You enjoy people, you enjoy talking to and helping people and you have a knack for motivating and inspiring them with your positive attitude. You are articulate. You have a good sense of humor and a cooperative attitude. You show kindness, empathy, patience and respect for others. You are ethical and honest even when no one is watching. You are punctual. You are able to take constructive criticism and correction without getting defensive or feeling “hurt” and discouraged. You look for solutions to problems 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 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 (ie 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.

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 internet, Facebook, Twitter, answering personal calls, paying personal bills, spreading gossip, etc.) . Finally, you are cooperative with the decisions that the business owners make, whether they suit you or not.

This may sound harsh to some-but this is our reality. We truly bust our tails at Sanor 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 nor do we enjoy micro-managing you. We will clearly set out our expectations and remind you if you forget or if you fail to meet them. We want you to be part of our team and not just a worker here.  We want to give you autonomy and be free to do the work that you’re getting paid to do.


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 Sanor Insurance)
Negative Attitude-Wrong Line of work.
Laziness-We all work hard here. You will too.
Drama-We don’t have the time or energy-try your community theater instead
People who CANNOT follow instruction.
People who CANNOT manage their time.
Anyone rude or abusive to a client-they are our present and future.
Phoniness- We are direct. You will be too.
People who see problems-not solutions-this is a business about finding solutions to problems!
Whiners & Complainers-Life is too short!


This Job Is NOT For Everyone!

So, these are the “Facts of Life” at Sanor Insurance. If you’re still reading and have NOT been scared off by what I’ve said about working on our award winning insurance team-then carefully follow the instructions below and let us know who you are. *** Remember-when our Insurance agency runs a “Help Wanted” advertisement for any position- we are absolutely SWAMPED with people applying so you need to put your best foot forward.
