    Current Employee - District Sales Coordinator in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Aflac full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have complete control over how much I make or don't make based on what I'm willing to put into my career.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be difficult to stay motivated and focused. I'm easily distracted so I have to make my goals a priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think more focus needs to be on quality recruiting, training and retention as opposed to mass recruiting. This isn't a fit for everyone.

    I have been working at Aflac as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great support, great products and training. Good incentives and pay. The company pays claims as they advertise. Up to date technology makes submitting new business and claims easy and fast.

    Cons

    Consider the economy of the area you will be selling in, it has been tough in my rural - low pay area causing me to travel more than I would like.

    I have been working at Aflac full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lot's of training. The support, both online and from senior agents, is impressive. You are not just given some books to study and sent into the field; you go on appointments with your training agent, and they go with you until you are proficient on your own.

    Cons

    The nature of the industry means up and down commissions, at least until you have enough business for nice residuals. That's just the nature of the beast.

    I have been working at Aflac full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Unlimited income, training, trips, satisfaction of helping others. After 11+ years the Aflac team is my family.

    Cons

    It's a tough transition for anyone going into a new role. The first year is hard but will be the most rewarding decision you ever make for the right hardworking person.
