    Insurance Specialist Internship

    I worked at Aflac as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot about dealing with different types of clients (or potential clients). That experience is great if you ever want a good relationship with your clients. The different insurance service they offered the clients were really worth it.

    Cons

    There was no salary, it was only commission. So if you didn't get any clients, you didn't get any money. Which can be stressful when you have bills to pay. And a lot of people didn't even want to hear about the service they could benefit from Aflac. Aflac really wanted to help them but the idiots didn't want anything from them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that the interns know that the internship is unpaid, I was told I was gonna make a lot of money, but I did not know that it would be commission based.

    It was a good experience but not what I expected for an internship position.

    You need a lot of good contacts to begin with.
