A Great First sales job as long as you don't need $ right away

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Portland, OR

ProsFreedom=Self-Employed, Learned Cold calling via phone and going from business to business. Learned Public Speaking. Aflac helps people which is a great feeling.

ConsRude HR and other gatekeepers. At least 90% of new agents fail within 6 months for a variety of reasons. It is very hard work. Hard to keep motivated, hard to self regulate and work at least 8 hrs a day prospecting vs organizing your files and chatting with co-workers. Most people just don't have the self-discipline to do this.

Advice to Senior ManagementVery disappointed at how inflated the projected income you make in the first year is.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    My last Career

    Sales Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Greenville, SC

    I have been working at Aflac as a contractor for more than 8 years


    Pros: The culture of a team determined my success. I have experienced working for Aflac in two different states,… Cons: If your team does not provide training, this becomes very difficult. You must be self-motivated and the first year is the hardest. Many people don't… Advice to Senior Management: I would provide a stronger emphasis on training and hold people more accountable to providing fair opportunities for people that are… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
