    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    You will be your own person with others to support you. If lucky, you will be assigned a respectful, good-hearted mentor and not a drill sergeant. Earnings are potentially high and every day is different. Being gregarious and interested in others is a plus. If you have been in sales before, you should be fine. As this is a company with outstanding products and one that wins international ethics awards, you can feel very proud to represent Aflac. Training is thorough and on-going. The company help line puts one in touch with people who are well-trained and truly helpful in dealing with problems of all kinds. You have the power to change the course of people's lives for the better as an Aflac agent.

    Cons

    The commission structure was not clearly communicated. The degree of effort to realize high earnings was also not accurately described - estimate 10-12 hr days. Be aware you receive no benefits of any kind, you will not be eligible for unemployment, you will have to learn how to deal with self employment taxes, and you will be dinged (via commission reduction) for company platform upgrades that you must adopt. You will sometimes be yelled at and verbally abused when approaching complete strangers with a product they know nothing about, and do not wish to hear about. A "thick skin" is what is called for at times.

    Advice to Management

    Giving a more detailed and balanced view of what becoming an agent entails and potentially earns (and at what degree of effort) is recommended.
