the job is fine. the job culture is bad. bonuses are poor and difficult to acheive with some managers being very pushy and, in my experience, rude, overbearing, and even agressive. I worked for 3 different managers while I was employed there, one of them was great a real people leader! one of them was a little bully who would make coments about my appearance and personal life, and the other was an out right tyrent whos blood pressure would visibly go up if he had to interact with the staff at all.
Pros
have many branches so may be local to you. training is very good
Cons
small office, often with no parking, can be very difficult to reach targets as products not competitively priced.

Swinton offered a good service and had great relationships with other insurers. The issues they had was the lack of support given to employers in the form of training and management. The were various changes that will ill thought of and made the job more difficult. The salary was below par with many employees depending too much on there bonus.

Working in Swinton's was very target orientated if you did not reach targets then you would not be paid commission. It helped me to work well both for myself as an individual but more as a team. Everything was scripted so it also made you become compliance minded.
Pros
working as a team
Cons
very unachievable targets
