Sales Agent Interview

Sales Agent
Reading, PA

The process took a day - interviewed at Aflac in September 2008.

Interview Details – One easy interview. They accept anyone motivated to sell. There are many agents, so only the most motivated and skilled will succeed. About 90% do not make it. Great Personality and determination are the best skills for the job. Need to be able to take rejection.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Aflac in November 2011.

Interview Details – First I went in for a presentation. It was OK; got a fair amount of info on the company. The next day I went in for a one on one interview with the regional manager. He didn't ask me any questions about myself or my qualifications so apparently he didn't care to get to know me or see if I was a good fit before offering me a job. He just answered questions I had by rambling on about his experiences with the company.

Interview Question – There were no questions asked of me. The was the problem.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – The interviewer didn't try to find out anything about me. That set off warning signals. Also, the compensation for the job is 100% commission or bonus based with no guaranteed money or benefits. I would have had to pay for my insurance license out of pocket. And it would have been all cold calling or knocking on doors. Not very appealing.

I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Aflac in August 2011.

Interview Details – Received an initial email asking me to interview with AFLAC. Looked on-line at AFLAC and saw the numerous awards for a great place to work and being an ethical company. So I went to the interview. It was pleasant, cordial and professional. I thought I was interviewing for a sales position working for AFLAC.

Interview Question – DId not really receive any difficult questions.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – In reality I was interviewing to be a sales agent (not an employee of AFLAC). 100% commission based, no reimbursement for expenses including licensing fees. I did feel mislead since the interview centered on working for AFLAC and the potential business in the area. Only after reading the Glassdoor and asking some questions of Aflac did I realize what was occurring. I believe many people have it right when they say it's a giant pyramid scheme. According to the AFLAC rep i spoke with, all sales and sales management are 1099'ed. All sales management get a commission from the sales of the people they hire and so on. It also appears that their sales strategy is just to pile on people. Not for everyone.

Sales Agent Interview

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Aflac in January 2010.

Interview Details – Overall experience was nice, the lead sales agent interviewed me upon first contact over the phone. He had noticed my resume on a job search website, and he thought I would make a great fit for their company. I had never thought about going in to any sales role since I am a management person, however, being laid off at the time, I thought I would at least hear what they had to offer. The phone interview was the basic questions, such as would you be interested? and do you have any experience? and so on, experience is not what they look for since they will train you, the only answer he is looking for here is Yes you are interested.

Next was the face to face- this is a two step (meaning 2 seperate interviews on different days) process.
The first interview he ask what do you know about Aflac? my answer was the duck and that is all I know, he said of course, that is what most people know. then he went on to explain more about the company, and gave me all kinds of info on it. Almost as if he was trying to sell me Aflac insurance.
Then he just asked some basic questions again, such as what drives me? what do I look for in a career? what would motivate me? how do I see myself in 5 years? what income am I looking for?
The main object is really be truthful, there is no real true answer to what he is asking, it is just a matter of trying to get to know your personaility and if you are trainable or not.

The 2nd interview comes if you pass the first, this part is more of training talk and again basic questions like how your family would support you in this job, how you would motivate your self to work each day (since you are unsupervised). Then once you disguss these things, the training comes up, and licensing. You have to pay for your state test and fees, which came to about 400 or so. If this is no problem for you, then he will tell you he will call you in a day or so and let you know one way or another.

I of course got a call saying I was hired.

Reason for Declining – I declined, simply because I just do not think sales is where I am at this point in life. I just did not or do not want to go that route. It is not for everyone and it for sure is not for me.
