SelectQuote to add 100 new positions at West Des Moines office


SelectQuote Insurance Services Inc., an insurance brokerage that provides price comparison consultations by phone, announced that it is hiring for more than 1,000 new insurance sales and support associate positions nationwide this year, including approximately 100 positions it plans to add to its West Des Moines office. The Overland Park, Kan.-based company is also hiring associates for work-from-home positions. The new associates will support SelectQuote’s Senior, Life, and Auto & Home divisions by providing phone consultations for consumers. “We are looking for people from a variety of backgrounds and are working with state authorities to ensure licensing of agents can continue given the COVID-19 closures,” said Anthony Fasl, head of talent acquisition and management for SelectQuote. The company established the West Des Moines office less than a year ago and has not yet reached its initial staffing goal of 100 people, he said. The 100 additional positions will be largely licensed sales agents who are insurance brokers, with base pay plus commission averaging $80,000 per year, Fasl said. The company, which employs more than 1,800 people, hopes that the opening of new roles will help alleviate some financial pressure for those who may have been affected by the COVID-19 crisis, CEO Tim Danker said. “We truly value our team members, and as people are evaluating their careers or may find themselves suddenly unemployed, we hope they’ll contact us. We offer highly competitive compensation and benefits.”
