I have been working at Aflac as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

Money is excellent when clients are gained (it usually takes 3+ attempts to gain a possible enrollment setting). Commission is paid as well as residuals on paid, current accounts.

Cons

Cold calling on businesses, especially the people you know. There is no salary, only commission, training is not paid, however a cold lunch was provided during training as well as lodging.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of long days in a room training, training should be out on the field. Would also be nice to have appointments preset instead of walking into a business unannounced, can get awkward.

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Aflac part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good practice with cold calling

    Cons

    The internship was basically a ponzi scheme to trick young college kids trying to gain experience in the work place to use all of their contacts to penetrate into companies that do not already have AFLAC''s product and then give them a meager fraction of the reward. After gas and licensing fees, I lost money that summer despite bringing in over $5000 of annual business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Steer clear

    I have been working at Aflac full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good product and fun training though grueling hours and commute

    Cons

    Pay for license, pay for class to get it, pay for parking at \
    } training, pay for gas, pay for binders and other office supplies, then pay for mote gas. Now work for 3 months and do not make a dime in return. Now work some more and then they ask you to PAY to come into the office!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people a draw or expenses or something. That way 98% of people won't quit
