Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Aflac (Seattle, WA) in February 2015.

Interview

3 steps in the interview process :
1st one was an interview with the owner of the franchise who was very straightforward about what he was looking for. People with a business owner's mentality who wouldn't be scared to talk and engage with other business owners
2 nd step was an interview with business owner to explain what the contract is about (was very clear abut independent contract status), the role of sales associate and sales coordinator/trainer. I was also presented expectations and the effort (number of appointments) required to come up with a $25000 commission per quarter.
3 rd step was conversation with a trainer to explain how you are trained.
Then, it was up to me to decide. Basically, I understand that you bear the risk and costs as the independent contractor. Aflac provides marketing material and training. Now up to me to decide whether the risk is worth the opportunity...

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Aflac (Rockville, MD) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was very long, I think it ended up being 3 different interviews in total. But the actual interview questions were very lax and not too taxing. It wasn't the toughest interview experience by any means.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Aflac in December 2014.

    Interview

    After applying or being reached out by a recruiter, you get invited via email to come for an initial group interview and to hear more about the company and the position details. Before the presentation, you are asked to answer a questionnaire on why they should hire you, what are your strengths/weaknesses, what would your last employer say about you, why you want to work for them, what are 3 positive things about you, and what motivates you. Then everyone is asked to introduce themselves and the presentation follows with one question regarding what you already know about the company. At the end, you are allowed to ask questions and you are instructed to write down your level of interest in the position. If your interest is mutual with their interest in you, you are called back for a one on one interview.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any difficult questions. The initial group interview is more so to give you an overview of the company, position, and realistic expectations of working in sales such as frequently hearing no. Also, the initial group interview is to assess you in comparison to the other candidates in the room.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Aflac (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    Group interview in conference room. Mentioned Manager in training position on the phone but it was post poned after the "presenters" tried to sell you on becoming a salesman.

    Reasons for Declining

    Appeared to be a scam. Too dependent on commissions for an industry that already has too many negative view points from consumers nationwide.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aflac (Appleton, WI) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Initially, I was approached via Email for an interview after they saw my resume posted on an internet job board. The interview itself took about an hour and a half and it was a "group" interview. There was a questionnaire asking for some information about you and why you would be a good fit for Aflac. The interviewer asked us to complete part of the questionnaire at the beginning of the interview and part of it at the end. Overall, it was an informative, pleasant experience and being interviewed with another candidate simultaneously was not as uncomfortable as I thought it would be.
