We support a healthy work-life balance! We don’t require you to work late nights and weekends like other agencies do.
Our business is the largest in our industry with better and more clients in Multi-Family housing than anyone else. We have a higher contingency rates (our fee per dollar we collect), better pay potential, contests, available resources, and benefits!
Let’s talk money!
We offer a base salary between $2,500 - $3,000+ per month based on experience. There are bonus opportunities during your first 90 days that can increase your income early on. The bonuses are around $200-400+ each.
The BIG money is in our commission plan! We have one of the best commission plans around (if not THE best)!!! Our average collectors make between $50,000 - $70,000 in their first year then $70,000 - $100,000 in their second year. Our Top Performers are making $125,000 - $200,000+. Because earnings potential is performance driven, your income may vary from these averages.
In addition to great pay, Assurant offers competitive benefits! Here are a few highlights:
You get to choose from 3 different levels of Health Insurance Benefits so that you get exactly what you need based on your situation. We match $1 for $1 up to 6% on your 401(k) contributions.

We need you to have a High School Diploma or GED, basic math skills (adding, subtracting, multiplying, rounding, and probability), confidence, and persistence.
We’ve seen great success from, but not limited to, people with backgrounds like retail salespeople, fast paced call center or customer service agents, business developers in real estate, retail, marketing, or insurance, or banking professionals such as Personal Bankers or Loan Officers, restaurant servers, cooks, bar tenders, car sales, etc. People that have ever said they, “just need someone to give them an opportunity to prove myself” do really well here.
