I worked at Aflac full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Perks and management were great. I loved the culture and all the people I worked with. They still offer a pension and 401K, which is rare these days.

Cons

Compensation could have been much better. Columbus is a small town and the mill barons like to keep it that way. They keep everyone from job hoping and force lower salaries all around.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are a very profitable company, release the purse strings and pay your staff better. This could be an even better company, much like its wonderful history, you have lost something special in the past 5 years.

    I have been working at Aflac part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility and freedom to make your own hours

    Cons

    Cold calls and Prospecting, Constant Hiring and lack of leads

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It needs to be explained in detail that the associate will have to get all leads by knowing people, cold calling, and/or prospecting. I would have never taken the job knowing that fact alone. I was under the impression there was paid training, which isn't the case. I had to pay for all my training myself. I also wished they would lower the cost of the computer you need to purchase 1500-1800 is a bit steep.

    Pros

    Work your own hours, full or part time. Good support system and training.

    Cons

    Pay is all commission, no paid training, cold calling. Sales are few and far between, you have to put in a lot of effort and work with no pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very few individuals can survive on an all commission basis.
