Application

I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Aflac (Beaverton, OR) in February 2015.

Interview

The interview process was a series of three interviews. The first one was an individual interview and went smoothly; the interviewer was friendly and asked good questions. The second interview was a group interview and included a presentation and a chance to ask questions. If you were invited to a third, it was because you got the job. The third interview was to get licensing sorted out.

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Aflac (Seattle, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    3 steps in the interview process :
    1st one was an interview with the owner of the franchise who was very straightforward about what he was looking for. People with a business owner's mentality who wouldn't be scared to talk and engage with other business owners
    2 nd step was an interview with business owner to explain what the contract is about (was very clear abut independent contract status), the role of sales associate and sales coordinator/trainer. I was also presented expectations and the effort (number of appointments) required to come up with a $25000 commission per quarter.
    3 rd step was conversation with a trainer to explain how you are trained.
    Then, it was up to me to decide. Basically, I understand that you bear the risk and costs as the independent contractor. Aflac provides marketing material and training. Now up to me to decide whether the risk is worth the opportunity...

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Aflac (Newton, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very informal, did not say in email that is was a commission based job. They asked you what you were looking for then split people up into twos and basically said it is a commission based salaey only. Should have said that in their email so it was not a waste of my time.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Aflac in October 2014.

    Interview

    I initially reached out to the company through linkedin when I was studying to get my Resident Health Producer's license for another insurance company. They gave a handful of people a brief seminar on just what Aflac did and asked if we wanted to be hired at the end of the presentation. Following this, I interviewed with a Regional Sales Coordinator. It appears they will take anyone who is dedicated and has Insurance Producer's licenses.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Interview process was easy, it was a group interview. Then you get a call 48 hours later for second interview. Then I realized its commission based pay only. Great people who coordinated everything.
