Easy Interview

Application

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.

    Application

    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.

    Application

    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.

    Negotiation

    There was none.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Aflac in December 2014.

    Interview

    After applying or being reached out by a recruiter, you get invited via email to come for an initial group interview and to hear more about the company and the position details. Before the presentation, you are asked to answer a questionnaire on why they should hire you, what are your strengths/weaknesses, what would your last employer say about you, why you want to work for them, what are 3 positive things about you, and what motivates you. Then everyone is asked to introduce themselves and the presentation follows with one question regarding what you already know about the company. At the end, you are allowed to ask questions and you are instructed to write down your level of interest in the position. If your interest is mutual with their interest in you, you are called back for a one on one interview.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any difficult questions. The initial group interview is more so to give you an overview of the company, position, and realistic expectations of working in sales such as frequently hearing no. Also, the initial group interview is to assess you in comparison to the other candidates in the room.   1 Answer

    Interview

    They seemed to hire anyone with a pulse anybody who walked it pretty much was assumed to be taken on as an employee. The meeting was short, about an hour. There were a few consecutive meetings, and about 20 people in a single group interview. It was a positive interview, all telling the great things about Aflac.
