    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Aflac (Indianapolis, IN) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Firstly, I spoke with the district coordinator for nearly two hours which was just talking about life as an athlete and a teacher and how it translates to this position. As a sales associate we want to educate our customers about lifestyle changes and tradeoffs which lower risks over time. We talked about the products Aflac offers and objections we may see in the field. Of course he asked me about past experience. I had experience for a year in the health field so this was an easy transition. The next day I met with the regiona coordinator for th final interview which I could have been much better. I sort of frozen up after hearing him speak which is unlike me. Basically the questions were about self discipline and work ethic. He hammered home strongly the compensation inlvolved. You can geat pod within two days of signing someone up for a plan. Twe percent of what you sale allows you to turn it into stock up front or 3.5 percent if you wait longer. Their are a lot of contests and such also which allow you to travel.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aflac (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    The initial interview: There should have been disclosures about real dollar costs like office and supplies cost sharing as well as footing the cost of your travel to training, including lodging if you don't want to partner up with someone you don't know. The follow up: I was asked to prepare questions for a follow up call, but in retrospect it seemed an in-genuine gesture to be able to say one was allowed to ask questions. Well, if one is unaware of the breadth and depth of the onboarding, then how relevant would are those questions? Answer, they aren't. The reality: If you can't tolerate months without an income or with a very minimal income, since there is no financial support from AFLAC during months of training, all while paying out the cost of business, this is not the opportunity for you. I couldn't so I left before starting school. The outcome: Bitter acceptance from the recruiter. I'm happy with my decision to leave. I did pass my state exam and get my license.

    Negotiation

    Since you are a 1099 independent contractor responsible for footing all of your own business expenses including travel and supplies for training, negotiations don't really exist.

    Interview

    Came across the Aflac table my University's career fair. Gave them my resume and they called me the next day. The interview was easy, but not the best experience I've had. The first fifteen minutes were standard asking me about things on my resume and my plans for the future. After that my interviewer spent the next hour and a half doing a sales pitch of the position with a powerpoint presentation. Not the best first impression for an interview considering 90% of the stuff he talked about I already knew from doing prior research. Like most I'm not ignorant enough to go into an interview without researching at the very least the most basic facts about the company. Overall nice guy but the interview was a bit one sided.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aflac.

    Interview

    Don't fool yourself, they will hire anyone who can pass the insurance exam and is willing to work for no base/commission . They interview about 30 people a week in our office and have hired over 150 since Jan (but most don't stay). It's a great sales pitch they give you. But you may want to look at the average salaries posted on here. If you can live on 1000-2000 a month, go for it. BTW the insurance exam is not easy. They tell you at the interview that you can study and pass in 2 weeks. Most people take 3-4 weeks. New agents feed the machine. You can't look at the CIT's salaries to represent what you will make because they are given business by the DSC for compensation for training new sales agents. If they contacted you, and you want to check them out, make sure to research to see if there is a office closer to your home because you will need to go to meetings or training 5 days a week.

    Unless you know a lot of business owners this job is fruitless.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aflac (Grand Rapids, MI).

    Interview

    Online resume submission. Was called 3 days after submitting resume and told to come in for an "interview" with the Regional Sales Rep. I knew going in that this was simply a recruiting cattle call but I wanted to see if I could cut through the "rah-rah" Aflac shite and see if the opportunity could actually pan out. All of my questions were answered and I was given more information to digest at home. That information was little more than a few glossy generic recruitment pages in an Aflac folder. I was called back 2 days later and asked if I wanted to schedule a second interview and I said I'd get back to them.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult or unexpected questions as the "interview" was little more than a pulse check. Aflac does not "hire" sales people you join them as independent contractors to sell their limited product line.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I'm looking for a job that starts with a base salary that eventually gets replaced by commission.
