    Pros

    Company support and product brochures are free. You determine your own schedule. 100% Commission sales job. Working with policyholders to handle claims is rewarding.

    Cons

    100% Sales job. Insurance is easy to sell if you can get past the "gatekeeper".

    Provide constant support to new agents in the first 3-6 months or most will not make it.

    I worked at Aflac full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family oriented company that provides employees with the tools to successfully perform job duties.

    Cons

    The call center should offer 24 her customer service and more opportunities to work from home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Call Center Management needs to be rotated. They have become too comfortable in their positions. Call centers are evolving and new management may be needed to meet the new challenges.

    I worked at Aflac full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I like working for a company that has high standards and delivers what they sell. Aflac does this well. It gives you a good feeling that you are selling a product that actually helps people in need.

    Cons

    Since it is outside sales, there is a lot of working in uncomfortable weather conditions and pressure to get sales in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really don't see what they could do to make conditions any better. The management has always been helpful in providing support.

    I worked at Aflac full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked very hard for three years with Aflac and I'm still reaping the benefits even three years after I quit.

    Cons

    Cold calling is a tough way to make a living. They package it in many different ways...but cold calling is still cold calling!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the ones who do the majority of the work...remember the 20% who put food on your table!

    There are definitely lots of challenges, but as long as your coordinator gives you the tools you need during training you can overcome them all!

    Pros

    Aflac is a company where they have mastered appreciating their employees and from all levels of management. If a company wants to know ways to encourage a positive atmosphere within their corporation, they will most definitely need to talk to the people of Aflac. Outstanding job!

    Cons

    It is nearly impossible to think of a con. This company just offers a lot of benefits for their employees. It is definitely the heartbeat of Columbus, GA.
