    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.

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

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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 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.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Aflac in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    A simple group interview to start, then followed by a one-on-one interview with a manager. They speak of all these different "positions" but it's really just setting appointments with business owners and sales.

    Interview Details

    I posted my resume on Career Builder and was contacted by Aflac rep. Had 1:1 interview and was joined by other managers for the last hour. I was told about the product and earning potential was discussed. I was offered the job at the end of the interview and advised them I'd need to think about it. After a few days, I decided to give it a shot.

    Interview Questions
    • How many potential clients do I feel I could get in the beginning (based on my existing contacts)?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Make sure you are passionate about the sales process and specifically, about what you're selling. Also, create a list of people/companies you feel would let you come in to do a presentation...if you have enough connections, and those connections can give you referrals as well, you will be off to a good start.

    The process took 3 days - interviewed at Aflac in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a DSC from my resume being on my college's website. Interview was basic. He asked me a little about myself, what i looked for in a career, etc. then he told me a little about the company, what they do, and how they get paid. He did not lead me on as far as pay goes. Told me that it was 100% commission (which i already knew). Seems like a good opportunity if you would like to make a lot of $, although it will take some time.
