Sales Associate Interview

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.

    Application Details

    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 online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Aflac in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was not difficult, why do you want to work here, what type of person are you, blah blah blah. The group interview was a little strange as all of the people were very different. I think one guy was asleep for most of the time. But the 1:1 interview was much more formal and professional. Very comfortable atmosphere.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Aflac.

    Interview Details

    Group interview in conference room. Mentioned Manager in training position on the phone but it was post poned after the "presenters" tried to sell you on becoming a salesman.

    Reasons for Declining

    Appeared to be a scam. Too dependent on commissions for an industry that already has too many negative view points from consumers nationwide.
