    Lots of time, effort, money. Might pay off but definitely have a backup plan.

    Pros

    Nice people, lots of enthusiasm, district coordinators devote lots of time when you first start, lots of training

    Cons

    They will sell you in your interview. If you're reading this and thinking "whatever, I wouldn't fall for it", trust me, you will by the time training is over. I don't want to sound discouraging because there are lots of people making a living from Aflac. It will take about two years to recover from the initial investment and establish accounts that won't lapse. If you think you're ready for a challenge or you are a great salesperson, the test will come when you're on your own in the field, in a recession, using your own time, gas, and money. By the way, Aflac doesn't provide leads like they say in the interview. There's an outdated online database that has more wrong addresses than right ones. People are rude and make you feel like garbage. Most will kindly tell you to leave. By the end, I averaged 12 cold calls to an appointment, 10 appointments to a sale. I started at about 80 cold calls to an appointment. I spent easily 3x what I made there trying to get started. So please, please have a backup plan or second job before you do this!

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with people about the investment. I've never been in debt before, but I am now because you exaggerate commissions and how fast you can make money.

    Pros

    Make my own schedule, unlimited income potential, flexible, company has strong financial standing and great ratings for customer service so that makes it easier to approach prospects, oh did I say how much the duck commercials help when canvasing businesses (it makes it fun and serves as an ice breaker)

    Cons

    No base salary or ramp up funds to help beginners, training is not so great

    Advice to Management

    Show a bit more concern for your team and drive them harder so that you can get better results with sales Start giving new hires paid training or ramp up money to get them going or your turn over rate will continue to he high
