Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Walker, MN

The process took a day - interviewed at Aflac in May 2010.

Interview Details – Filled out an application online. Received a phone call to set up an interview within 10 minutes of filling out application. Went to interview at the end of the week, very relaxed atmosphere. Just learned about the company and was asked some easy questions. Seems like a good company to work for if you are interested in selling insurance to people.

Reason for Declining – Not the right job for me, best if you are looking for a career, I'm just looking for a short term job.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Durham, NC

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Aflac in December 2011.

Interview Details – The mass recruitment process through employment sites like careerbuilder feed many into the system but the success rate among the hired is less than 1%. That being said, the interview process was thorough and the contracting process was well organized and efficient. The intent is to allow new associates to exploit existing social contacts to get started then learn good business approach and cold calling practices to maintain a low but steady income. Mass recruitment feeds a percentage of sales to middle management encouraging them to keep the hiring going despite a high failure rate among employees and an investment of time and licensing fees.

Interview Question – Explain how an independent work opportunity lead to a past business success.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Standard contract with no negotiation available. All commissions are standardized but they do offer an up front commission inducement for new agents just getting started.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Aflac.

Interview Details – 3 rounds of interviews. Easy to get the 2nd round since the first is more of a info session. Although it may seem like the regional sales coordinator really cares about you, all they care about it hiring quantity since there is a high turnover rate. Don't read too much into them seeming to like you. The 3rd round is just meeting to accept the position.

Interview Question – How do you handle high stress situations?   Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Aflac.

Interview Details – They called me out of the blue, said they found my resume online and invited me in to discuss the position with their district coordinator. I went in a week later and the DC discussed compensation, the day to day duties of the position, and the opportunity for growth. They then collected resumes and I heard from them not too long after that they wanted to bring me in, so I took the position.

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in five years   Answer Question

Sales Associate
Ann Arbor, MI

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Aflac in November 2013.

Interview Details – Found them through campus recruiting. I handed them my resume and got an interview. The first "interview" was a group interview where basically the manager told us his life story and if we wanted to, we could check Yes to a second interview. The second interview was one-on-one, but again the manager did most of the talking and only asked me basic questioned.

Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I don't think this is the type of position I'm looking for.
