When I first came to EquiTrust, I had very little knowledge of annuities or life insurance. I started as a Funding Representative, and was a sponge for information. Then I worked in New Business, and later in In-Force Business. Now I’m a Business Analyst on our IT team. I’ve loved the experience and the opportunity to grow professionally with my teammates at EquiTrust.
My experience is pretty typical among other EquiTrust employees. The Company really values on-the-job learning and the relationships build along the way with customers, agents and teammates.
Personally, I need to be challenged in my work. And I feel my hard work has paid off through advancement and compensation. We also benefit from other forms of recognition and awards. At a recent company event, the names of several coworkers were drawn to win a trip to see an LA Dodgers game; others went to an LA Lakers game. This was made possible through the generosity of our company owner, Earvin “Magic” Johnson.
Looking ahead, the potential for new experiences and responsibilities keeps me inspired. I do enjoy my job and coming to work each day. I feel my future here looks bright.
