Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Durham, NC
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aflac (Durham, NC) in December 2011.

Interview

The mass recruitment process through employment sites like careerbuilder feed many into the system but the success rate among the hired is less than 1%. That being said, the interview process was thorough and the contracting process was well organized and efficient. The intent is to allow new associates to exploit existing social contacts to get started then learn good business approach and cold calling practices to maintain a low but steady income. Mass recruitment feeds a percentage of sales to middle management encouraging them to keep the hiring going despite a high failure rate among employees and an investment of time and licensing fees.

Interview Questions

  • Explain how an independent work opportunity lead to a past business success.   Answer Question

Negotiation

Standard contract with no negotiation available. All commissions are standardized but they do offer an up front commission inducement for new agents just getting started.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Aflac in September 2011.

    Interview

    I initially met with Aflac at a very small job fair. I spent maybe a minute talking with the company representative, handed her my resume, and expected nothing to come from it , as she had little to say about the positions available. I later received a callback at the end of the day, inviting me in for an interview.

    This was a typical first round interview, where the hiring manager asked about my knowledge of Aflac, the typical sales process, and various 'what-are-your-strengths' questions. However, Aflac's initial job listing at failed to specify that the position was entirely commission-based, which made for a rather awkward interview. (I had no intentions of applying for a position as a commission-based employee!)

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Aflac in February 2011.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the job in person with a regional recruiter. This person was nice and not all pushy. I have another interview scheduled. This person even said that my spouse could come along because my spouse would probably have questions also. This person emphasized that it is a commission only job and the income would be slow at first but if I was successful, I could make a lot of money.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aflac in July 2010.

    Interview

    I sent my resume in on Friday and received a call Monday for an interview on Tuesday. I was advised that I did not need to bring anything to the interview. The interview took a little over and hour and was pretty informal. The first half of the interview consisted of general interview questions and the second half was more of an informational session about the products and sales process.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aflac in March 2010.

    Interview

    I was called by the interviewer for the company and set an appointment to come in for the first interveiw. When I showed up I was directed to a room with another candidate and given paperwork to fill out before the interveiw could commence.
    Approximately 20 to 30 minutes later our interveiwer entered the meeting room and proceeded to make a presentation about Aflac. He beckoned our particapation into a discussion by asking us questions and thus also finding out our capabilities for the position offered. His appearence (posture and communication style) suggests that he is very open and friendly.
    And even though I know how wonderful of a company Aflac is, I unfortunately did not pursue the position further for my lack of ability to sale.
