    Benefits Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Aflac.

    Interview

    I got an e-mail from Aflac District Recruiter claiming they found my resume online and would like to schedule a meeting to learn more about the position. The sales manager kept me waiting for more than 20 mins. During the conversation, he gave a overview of the company and the position. Since the position is commission based, I said this does not quite fit my expectation.

    Benefits Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Aflac (Loveland, CO).

    Interview

    It's misleading. The title sounds nice. When I looked up the job description as a benefits coordinator, it states that the position works directly with HR. I looked at the comments for the interview process on Glassdoor, I saw that it was a group interview and that the position is in sales. All of it was true. You basically sit in a classroom-like setting, and watch a presentation and they tell you that you're your own agent/entrepreneur and you have your own schedule and you try to sell policies. Basically a bunch of Bologna! Don't get sucked in from the recruiter. This is a sales job. Someone needs to tell the company about their false job postings! Hint: I knew it wasn't legit when the manager said that they have problems with no-shows, and that an interviewee would arrive with a friend. The manager was supposed to have 10 people. 3 including myself showed up.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Not too difficult. Had a group interview at first, and met with the recruiter individually after. We planned a second interview for the next week, based on my interest of the position and company. The second interview was more about me, only 15 minutes. Not too difficult. What you would expect in an interview.

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Aflac.

    Interview

    I was called in for an interview, but this was no interview. This was essentially a sales pitch. There were 6 other applicants in the room and we were shown a PowerPoint presentation about Aflac. I filled out a form, but I was never asked any questions directly.

    Interview Questions

    • On the form I answered basic questions like, "Where do you see yourself in 5 years" or "Are you comfortable in a sales position?".   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    It wasn't what I expected it to be. From what I understood if I took the job I would be working on commission. It's not something I was interested in.

    Interview

    Applied to a Craigslist ad for the internship. Got a response for an interview invite the next day. Met with Jason, the Regional Sales Coordinator, and he was very nice. Got invited for a second interview with Jenna and she was nice too! They just ask you about items on your resume, ask you to elaborate.

    Wanted the internship for experience (only paid $9/hour), but was offered a position at another company for more pay plus benefits and room for growth.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Aflac (Cedar Falls, IA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was prompt. The interviewer asked pertinent questions. One question I have never understood is "What would you like to do?" It seems obvious that if I am there interviewing for a job that that is what I want to do. Nobody forces me to an interview. It is my choice.

    Benefits Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Basking Ridge, NJ
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Aflac (Basking Ridge, NJ).

    Interview

    I got a call from a guy saying he saw my resume online and thought I'd be perfect for the role of benefits coordinator. I am a human resources major and I automatically assumed employee compensation and benefits position. He explained a little of what the job entailed and I didn't understand it at all and then he asked if I would be interested in setting up an interview. Stupidly I said yes and he told me it would be a great interview of four or more interviewees with a couple hiring managers. That should have been a red flag for me because group interviews almost always mean mass hirings and sales positions. I agreed to go in the next day but when I got home from work I looked into the position more and found out it was a sales job. I never showed up to the interview. He called me twice later that week to ask about how my interview went which goes to show the lack of communication in the company since I never even showed up. Haven't heard from them since.
