Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Fort Wayne, IN
Anonymous Employee in Fort Wayne, IN
Application Details

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Aflac.

Interview Details

Was contacted by a gentleman, that is a regular guest at my current place of employment, about an opportunity that was " so good it brought me out of retirement." I was hesitant at first but decided to set up an interview and find out what exactly they were looking for. The interview consisted of the group manager telling me his story of success with the company and that i could do it too. Upon some asking about leads was able to discover that I had to generate all of my own leads with little training. I was asked to set up a second appointment and never followed up, I decided it wasn't what i was looking for at the time.

    interviewed at Aflac in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I thought it would be a formal interview, but it didn't. When I came to the office, there was just another guy waiting for interview. Then the HR manger took a lecture about Aflac. He believed that U.S will like Japan be a major market for supplementary insurance in the near future. The compensation is totally based on sales result.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Aflac in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    First, there was an informal interview process over the phone. Not scripted, mostly an information gathering process where you are normally asked about your background and why you want to go into sales.

    Secondly, you are interviewed by either a manager or in a group with a regional and office manager. This is where they really get into the money making idea behind Aflac. ... if you are productive you will make money and similar pitches like that.

    After the office interview, I looked at reviews online and spoke with a few sales people I had met at a recruiting fair about what their daily activities were.
    I was not impressed with the support structure of the company. Being straight out of college going into the field I was expecting more.
    Also there is No Base Pay... 100% Commissions. I'd be all for it accept I have College Loans.

    It is a good company, but If you are going to get involved you must be able to do a lot of cold calling. and have some cash in the bank because it could take a while for you to start generating sales and business.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Aflac in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    First they bring u in with other interviewees and have a presentation of the company. Then they schedule individual interviews in the coming days. In the individual interview they try to sale you the company ( benefits, potential salary, etc). It isn't a bad company but I think the fact that they try to sell you the company, as oppose to you selling yourself to the company, made me feel that they would higher anybody who would accept. If you don't have any financial obligations and don't care if one week you make $1000 and the next you make nothing then I would say give it a shot, but if you are looking for a more reliable, fixed income then this job isn't for you.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Aflac in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    A simple group interview to start, then followed by a one-on-one interview with a manager. They speak of all these different "positions" but it's really just setting appointments with business owners and sales.

    Interview Details

    The interview was actually really easy. I had just submitted my resume online and was given a call about a week later and had an interview set up. I was asked some basic questions that tested my knowledge of the company (what the company sold and things like that) and my career goals. Other questions were also standard. Overall a relatively easy interview.
