Has anyone gotten a job as an insurance sales agent with a felony?
I was offered a job with state farm. An agent called and said i would be working for him and he would pay for my licenses. But im concerned because i have a felony as attempted monetary instrument. Would he be conducting a background check even if im a sales agent? It is a n independent sales job right? He also said i wud be making base pay n commission. What do you think?
