    Pros

    You make your own schedule. Unlimited earning potential.

    Cons

    It's full commission. The business model is to saturate areas as much as possible, so if you don't have the skills required to be good in sales you will most likely fail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire canidates you feel there is a good chance will be successful. Hiring everyone who applies is discouraging to a new hiree.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Aflac.

    Interview Details

    The first interview wasn't really an interview - there were 10 of us prospective agents in a conference room listening to a presentation by a manager. And there had been a similar group before us. We got to ask questions at the end, and I think everybody had the option to go in for a second, real one-on-one interview. It was a pleasant interview, but the lack of challenging questions and being accepted right then and there makes me think everyone who wanted to come on board probably could. Nothing wrong with that, except it makes me concerned about saturation. It takes a little over $200 to pay for the pre-licensing course, the background check and the exam. It may be a great opportunity for somebody with great sales skills, but it's 100% comission-based.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was really challenging. Perhaps the question about how my previous non-sales background prepared me for this type of job.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Agents are not employees of the company, they are independent agents. It's 100% commission. There really isn't any room for negotiation. You do get some bonuses if you hit certain performance targets.
