Beware charge-backs and expenses for purchasing equipment you will eventually need to write business

Agent (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

I have been working at Aflac

ProsFlexible, good first job to develop sales experience. Product is reasonably priced and designed.

ConsCommissions-only pay, and charge-backs for written business can drastically reduce income potential.
Depending on the region you work at, competition by incoming (inexperienced) agents can lower average income significantly.
Company reputation has suffered due to high employee turnover (see the two cons listed above)

Advice to Senior Management1. Establish customer service positions that are paid on a salary basis to maintain customer relations as agents come in and leave.
2. Require agent development goals from managerial positions, including requirements for PAYMENT for new agents that are asked to service existing accounts.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
