    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Aflac (Ann Arbor, MI) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Found them through campus recruiting. I handed them my resume and got an interview. The first "interview" was a group interview where basically the manager told us his life story and if we wanted to, we could check Yes to a second interview. The second interview was one-on-one, but again the manager did most of the talking and only asked me basic questioned.

    Interview

    Several phone interview, two in-person interviews that went well. As long as you are professional and willing they will hire you. You need to have your life and health sales license and you will need to pay for it yourself. Sales experience is a plus, but not required. You need to ask as many questions as possible to show interest.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked for a business plan straight away. It doesn't need to be detailed or long, you just need to be prepared.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No chance to negotiate. It is 100% commission.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Aflac.

    Interview

    They called me out of the blue, said they found my resume online and invited me in to discuss the position with their district coordinator. I went in a week later and the DC discussed compensation, the day to day duties of the position, and the opportunity for growth. They then collected resumes and I heard from them not too long after that they wanted to bring me in, so I took the position.

    The 1st interview involved a group of candidates who were given a presentation about what exactly Aflac does. We were all given information about the process in becoming a sales associate. They only had a follow up interview if you were interested. The follow up was 1 on 1 and you can ask as many questions about pay as you like.

Then if you have a pulse you get called back for another interview in which They didn't really ask me anything as it was clear I was hired just by showing up.
