    Pros

    Aflac is more than a job, it a career that gives you the chance to create your own worth based on your efforts. We get to change the financial aspect of a famiy's life for the better if they are faced with that unexpected health event. I love what I get to do everyday.

    Cons

    The only con is that I wished I would have started this career a lot sooner.

    Advice to Management

    Great coaching and training that has given me the change to reach my goals and career aspirations.

    I have been working at Aflac

    Pros

    I had a lot of one on one training with a regional manager. I also learned how to train employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work could be somewhat boring or tedious. I also didn't get the amount of hours I hoped for

    Pros

    Really loved working at Aflac. The management really helps you and wants you to succeed. They will go out of their way to help you succeed.

    Cons

    You drive a lot. Make sure you have some money that will last you a couple of months when you start the job or it may be a little rough financially on you for a couple months.

    Advice to Management

    Give a base salary to new associates so they will be able to cold call. I would say $400-$500 a week for the first year so they will have money to drive around and get their business off the ground.

    Pros

    Unlimited potential for financial growth in an industry that is growing at incredible rates.
    Extremely flexible hours because you are in charge.
    You are running your own business with almost zero overhead (licensing costs)
    All selling materials are ordered by individual agents for no cost and are mailed directly to your house.
    Pays commission within 2 days of producing / submitting business. Great incentives
    Selling a product that you can believe in - the policies that Aflac offers can truly help people in times of need.

    Cons

    Very few cons
    - Probably the biggest would be no major medical benefits (option to purchase Aflac benefits)
    - It can be tricky when you first start since there is no salary so if you don't have a little saved up or don't make any sales right away - $$ can be issue - however its completely possible to make a sale within the first couple weeks and then you will get paid almost immediately.
    - It's a job I would recommend to anyone, but its not a job for anyone. I say that because it takes a lot of discipline when you are on your own with no real "manager" looking over your shoulder to make sure you are actually working - can be easy to slack off and get distracted and do other things (run errands etc.) So like I said you have to be driven to put in the time you would at a regular office job

    Advice to Management

    Keep Doing What Your Doing. No contact with management at executive level, but upper level management at the state level through my experience has been great.
