    Aflac Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Aflac.

    Interview Details

    The most unprofessional interview I have ever experienced. You meet as an entire group for an "informative" session, which is a great idea in theory. Only they don't mention the upfront costs of becoming an agent that Aflac does not cover (Insurance license, monthly rent of your office space, business cards...$600+). Everyone is invited to a one on one interview after the group meeting, but here is whenever the unprofessional occurred. I arrived 30 minutes early to my interview and I ended up waiting 35 minutes past my scheduled interview time. The tone of the conversation was very one sided and she wasn't able to answer a few of my questions (other than "you'll know what I mean if you work I here, etc). Aside from swearing 5/6/7 times during an interview she was down right rude when I stated that I did not think the position was right me. The overall nature of the interview made me seriously consider reporting it to corporate because of a few other "choice words" she used at the end of the interview. I expected more from a very respectable company like Aflac.

    Benefit Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lake Mary, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lake Mary, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Aflac in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a benefit coordinator that was not clearly a sales position ( I have 20 years of analyst background, a security clearance and speak three languages fluently). I was very excited when I was contacted by a recruiter and an interview was set. One day before the interview, I did some checking on line for the position and I saw that so many people complained about being mislead into going to the interview just to find out that they are interviewing for a sales position, so I called the recruiter to make sure that this was not a sales position as I have been getting calls and emails from a list of insurance companies to sell. She was hesitant first, she asked me " well, what position did you applied for?"
    I answered "Benefit Coordinator" she said " yes that's a sales position", I said "no the job duties clearly indicated that this is not a sales position". she said" well, that job has been filled already". I couldn't believe it. Then she said, "well we like people with no sales experience so we can train them our way".
    Well, that may be OK, but misleading desperate applicant's its NOT. I believe the position I applied for never even existed, its just a way of luring applicant's in. All they had to do was be honest. I'm very disappointed in AFLAC.

    AFLAC Field Sales Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Aflac.

    Interview Details

    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 Details
    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.

    Independent Agent Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Aflac in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Most of the interview feels more like a sales pitch than an interview. It is only on the second interview that they really started asking questions about me, even then, the interview was more focused on the position itself.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing they asked was difficult, all very standard questions   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I did not feel like I would have adequate support to start up. They had promised me they were going to look into some information regarding my situation and never got back to me. Did not think they were invested in me as a person as much as they are invested in getting bodies out into the field.

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Aflac in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied by giving my resume to the reps at the Aflac booth at my school's career fair and received a call to schedule an interview about five weeks later, with the interview being a week after that. I was told I was being interviewed by the Regional Director, but ended up meeting with a current intern instead. The interview was easy enough, basic questions, nothing that caught me off guard. Examples: "Tell me about yourself", "What do you know about Aflac?", "Why do you want to intern here?". I didn't receive an offer but the internship wasn't really what I was looking for anyway. I was looking for an actuarial internship and this was more of a "general business internship" (the interviewer's words), and was unpaid.

    Internship Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Aflac.

    Interview Details

    Found the internship through my university's database. We set up an appointment. Interview went by quickly, I soon discovered that the person interviewing me just wanted to make sure I looked professional and I could speak professionally. No challenging questions. The most important thing is to research the company so that you can give a thorough response when they ask you about what you know. Interview was not worth the stress beforehand.
