My experience with Aflac has been life-changing for me and my family, and is the best professional decision I ever made.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) Chattanooga, TN

ProsI came to Aflac needing the opportunity to earn a substantial income, have flexible hours that would provide work/life balance, and the opportunity to made a difference in people's lives. Aflac has provided my family a great income and provided substantial growth opportunities and career development for me. I have been with Aflac for 14 years, starting as a sales associate with no sales or insurance experience. The training that they provided was key to my success. The work environment is challenging but fun, and the relationships that I have developed will last a lifetime.

ConsBeing a successful sales associate with Aflac is hard work! It requires a responsible use of flexibility. If you need the discipline of a timeclock in order to get up and go see customers everyday, this is definitely not the job for you. It can also be discouraging to hear the word "no". In sales, you always hear more "no's" than you do "yes's", and you have to be able to let that go in one ear and out the other and on to the next customer. For alot of people, that's hard to learn to do. The learning curve is steep, and you have to spend alot of time in the beginning just studying and learning the product. You are compensated in direct proportion to the amount of effort that you exert, and for some, that is not an acceptable concept.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to stayed focused on the voluntary market and our dominance in the marketplace.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
