    Pros

    They are very honest about what you can expect as a career. What you put into it is what you get. Cold calling is slightly necessary. I personally chose to network and get account that way. Winning trips and awards are so fun and achievable. When interviewing, I would ask how many of their first year associates were able to fast start and hit other first year awards. If they have at least 75%hit those goals then I would sign with them ASAP! It shows they really will support you and make sure you hit your goals and are a success.

    Cons

    Commission only can be a challenge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shop around with teams till you find a district and region you really like, trust, and respect.

    Pros

    Aflac is an incredible "Business Opportunity". If you are looking to be rewarded for your hard work and commitment, Aflac is the right choice. Too many people don't look at this opportunity as a business. If you just want an hourly wage stay where you are, if you want an opportunity to earn a large six figure income in a business with little overhead investment you can't beat Aflac.

    Cons

    Trying not to become complacent with success. Keep pushing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more incentives to veteran agents.

    I have been working at Aflac full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Support from fortune 118 WWHQ employees and services, nearly 100% name recognition, absolutely unlimited income, ability to start your own business with little capital investment and risk and mostly just hard work and learning. Aflac prepares you with product knowledge, effective prospecting, a 4 tier training program from field trainers, regional managers, state traingers, and wwhq-driven online courses. Unreal support and an amazing culture to work in. Products being presented are needed, affordable, and most people see the value.

    Cons

    You don't get paid to be present. During training you have to work smart and be dedicated. The income can be high one month and low the next-so you really have to spend smart on high income months. Realize when you come in to track all your expenses-you'll want to have them for tax time so you can gain from the out of pocket expenses like gas etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be very honest with people about what this position is. Reading some of the reviews on here, it seems like many people didn't realize they'd actually have to work to earn an income. It's very possible to make a very good income with Aflac and have the career of their dreams...but make sure know one thinks it's going to happen on it's own.

    Pros

    Time flexibility, set your own schedule, job is what you make it. Huge opportunity to move up in the company. Strong brand recognition, and strong opportunity in communities. The company is growing fast and beats the competition hands down product to product and service to service. Friendly competition within company.

    Cons

    Takes some time to get started and to see the rewards for your work. There can be some inconsistency in training between different levels but you have to decide for yourself what is important.

    Pros

    You get paid what you are worth. If you work hard, you make a lot of money, but if you are not disciplined, you won't make much.

    Cons

    If you have the right management team, there are no cons. It is hard work, but so worth it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training is critical. Make sure you keep on top of all your agents to insure they get the training they need to be successful. They do a great job in the Fort Myers area.

    Pros

    Excellent culture and benefits; growth opportunities. The Company genuinely values diversity and the well-being of its employees. This is demonstrated in various ways through employee engagement surveys and the diversity in managment ranks.

    Cons

    The Comopany is located in Columbus GA, about 70 miles southwest off ATlanta. This makes it difficualt to recruit top talent or pay a higher premium than would be required in other locations.
