Application Details

The process took a dayinterviewed 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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – 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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.
