I am soooo happy for DH! Long story short he worked for a company selling insurance for 7 years. He worked hard to turn that "basement business" into a large profitable company. He worked 10+ hour days daily and never ever told them no. For years and years he was promised big things.....promotions, raises, etc and never saw any of it. I won't get into it but for the last 2 years he was on the edge of his seat to finally be promoted out of sales because they kept telling him it was going to happen. He made very good money there but only because he was fantastic at selling. His salary was only $35k and he more then doubled that with commission.
So anyways finally this October he snapped and quit his job. They became very shady and even refused to pay him for over a month. It was very scary for him to be unemployed but he knew he had to do it right then or he would not be able to cut the ties. He started looking for a new job immediately and in November he was contacted by a popular insurance company who had heard of him through connections and was very interested in him. He went in and interviewed and was hired. He was training from November until January and moved into his new job last month. This job is fantastic! He is no longer selling insurance but rather manages 4 insurance offices throughout the state! His base salary is great and can also get bonuses 9 times a year based on each offices production. Best part is that he is home by 6:00 every night! No more waiting until 12-1am for him to get home just to spend 10 minutes with him before bed. I'm so proud of all his hard work! He really deserves this! Plus he is only 28 so he is really at the beginning of his career.
Oh and we also found out information about his old company. The owners plan was to build it up huge just to sell it off and profit from it. Knowing it would close. He used my husband to build it up and pushed him out before he could get to close to knowing. Sucks for him though because after DH left 5 other salesmen left and production there has basically stopped. The companies worth has gone way down and now he cant find a buyer. Sucks to be them!
