Independent Agent Interview

Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Aflac (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2012.

Interview

I went through a group interview for the first interview and when I was invited back for a second interview it was one on one. I chose to join the company because of the culture of caring, the team, and their commitment to excellence. It was scary at first though and it took me a while to get over my own fear.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aflac in April 2015.

    Interview

    1st group interview then a one-on-one interview. Simple questions, nothing out of the ordinary. Just google interview questions that deal with customer service and how to handle objections from people. Be fast on your feet cause who knows what kind of weird questions they will ask. They hire just about anybody since they have to meet a quota each month for new agents....

    Independent Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waltham, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Aflac (Waltham, MA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    The hiring process took 4 meetings with the initial meeting being a group meeting. You are required to pass the state Health Insurance exam prior to being hired. The cost of the exams are all on the individual being hired. Most people have no idea what it takes to start a business but are excited about the opportunity which for me I have seen a lot of agents waste a lot of their own money.

    Interview

    Basic run of the mill interview. Gave background of company and the positions available. Gave decent details on job potential along with financial opportunities. Didn't offer much more unless you wanted to schedule a second interview to discuss the opening in more detail.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Aflac (Sicklerville, NJ) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was more like a discussion to determine if the fit was mutual. We talked about my background. I told him about what was driving me to make a change in career. I in turn asked him some questions about himself. Found out that he was in law enforcement before becoming an independent agent, and rising to regional manager. Overall, it was relaxed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Aflac (Boston, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a group meeting, followed by individual interviews. Presentation on the company, what they do, and why they do it. General presentation on the industry in general, policies that Aflac offers, and so on. Individual interview was pretty short, covering work history, and basically making sure (I think) that I had the entrepreneurial capacity to persist in the industry.
