Field sales agents at Hollard (Former Employee) says"Hollard is a well oiled slave driving machine. The company gives out too little and expects too much in return. Their commission is almost non-existent. Their management strategy is deeply flawed and communication within and amongst the departments is terrible. Hollard maximizes on profit but does not take care of its employees, especially those at the field level. I would never recommend it to anyone as a place of work, however, their products are excellent and very competitive, if the company invested more in its personnel, it would probably be the highest ranking insurance company in the country.nonlong hours, little time off, too much work, very little pay and absolutely no support from tghe company."

Sales Consultant. Call Centre (Former Employee) says"Typical work day would be to get in, sign in and dial and expected to make sales within 4 hours of work. I learned how to be patient with clients and understand their needs and to allow them to express themselves. Taught me sales and that at times clients will entertain you even though they know that they do not want to buy. Work culture was based on the mission and vision of the company. The hardest part of the job was not being able to meet targets. the most enjoyable part of my work was having a client pleased with the service I gave even if it was just explaining and they did not buy and I did not make any sale.Training, workers function, team buildingLeads"
