Current Employee - Insurance Sales Agent

I have been working at Aflac as a contractor (less than an 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.

    I have been working at Aflac as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great support, online training, nice product portfolio, quick claims processing, work your own hours, paid quickly after the sale, brand recognition is second to none.

    Cons

    They will hire absolutely everybody, if you can fog the mirror then you have the job. Complete revolving door, you get contracted, bring on a few accounts, starve from no steady pay, and when you disappear to get a real job that pays, your accounts roll up to management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, the model has been working for years.

    I have been working at Aflac as an intern

    Pros

    Great working environment and supervisors. People at Aflac are very understanding and flexible regarding to any issues or unexpected situations.

    Cons

    Perhaps Aflac should implement greater projects that could give some challenges to interns.
