    I worked at Aflac as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    flexible hours, laid back, work when you want, strengthen persuasion skills, rewarding if your business helps a family in need, building a team and referrals makes you more money

    Cons

    only commission, strict marketing guidelines, licensing process is dreadful, hard to sell insurance to people, grunt work, phone calling, get rude customers sometimes

    I have been working at Aflac

    Pros

    Own hours, uncapped gains, company promotions, unlimited growth potential. If your back office staff sucks, you likely will too.

    Cons

    I went to an Aflac training meeting (closest one from the greater Phila area was almost in Baltimore) and was promptly met by a flashy upper sales coordinator trying to impress you with how much hair gel he can afford to use. His advise was on par, but it was clear half the interviewees were less than competent but he was giving them the same 'you can make X amount of money next month' speech. It helps to have a good back office; without a good district sales coordinator right above you it's hard to get started. Most people fail with Aflac, but those who succeed seem to have good things to say about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of micro management and so many sales coordinators makes it hard to point the finger when something is wrong.
