    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aflac (Durham, NC) in December 2011.

    Interview

    The mass recruitment process through employment sites like careerbuilder feed many into the system but the success rate among the hired is less than 1%. That being said, the interview process was thorough and the contracting process was well organized and efficient. The intent is to allow new associates to exploit existing social contacts to get started then learn good business approach and cold calling practices to maintain a low but steady income. Mass recruitment feeds a percentage of sales to middle management encouraging them to keep the hiring going despite a high failure rate among employees and an investment of time and licensing fees.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain how an independent work opportunity lead to a past business success.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Standard contract with no negotiation available. All commissions are standardized but they do offer an up front commission inducement for new agents just getting started.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aflac (Jacksonville, FL) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was not difficult, why do you want to work here, what type of person are you, blah blah blah. The group interview was a little strange as all of the people were very different. I think one guy was asleep for most of the time. But the 1:1 interview was much more formal and professional. Very comfortable atmosphere.

    There was none.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Aflac (Cincinnati, OH) in July 2014.

    Interview

    This was a two-part interview process. The first step I was invited to an interview and met with the Regional Sales Coordinator. I wasn't aware ahead of time, but it was a group interview that was a basic introduction to Aflac. We weren't directly asked any questions by the RSC, but we did fill out a paper with a few basic questions. Then I was invited the next day to schedule a one-on-one interview. This went over a lot of the same information as before, but then I was asked questions on my experience, and was given a chance to ask more questions. I was invited to join Aflac as a sales associate on the spot. After that was the process of getting my Accident & Health license, which took a little over a week and involved a background check, online class, proctored exam, and a state exam before it was all finished.
