    I have been working at Aflac full-time (less than an year)

    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.

    Former Employee - Intern in Elmwood Park, NJ

    I worked at Aflac part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was only an intern, but my boss and the human resources guy in the office were really cool and helpful. Other than that...not so much.

    Cons

    Everyone is an independent agent of Aflac, so there wasn't really a "team environment".
    As an intern, nobody really bothered to get to know me...spent most days just talking to my boss. Lost morale quick and stopped returning after a few weeks.
    A LOT OF COLD CALLING.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was cool. Not much to say for them. Maybe try to get everyone on the same page. I understand everyone has their own accounts, but something can be done to foster employee relations

    I have been working at Aflac full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    flexible hours, great training program,

    Cons

    In my interview for the job I was told I would easily make 3k within my first two weeks of working. I was told we'd be working warm leads with companies that want Aflac. None of this was true, you cold call and find your own leads. Most people I know there have been working for over half a year and have yet to make a dime.

    If you're serious about working for Aflac make sure you have plenty of money in your savings so you can pay your rent and bills for at least 6 months before starting your job here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie in the interview process, tell future employees the truth about making money.

    I have been working at Aflac full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have complete control over how much I make or don't make based on what I'm willing to put into my career.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be difficult to stay motivated and focused. I'm easily distracted so I have to make my goals a priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think more focus needs to be on quality recruiting, training and retention as opposed to mass recruiting. This isn't a fit for everyone.

    I have been working at Aflac as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great support, great products and training. Good incentives and pay. The company pays claims as they advertise. Up to date technology makes submitting new business and claims easy and fast.

    Cons

    Consider the economy of the area you will be selling in, it has been tough in my rural - low pay area causing me to travel more than I would like.
