I worked at Aflac full-time (Less than a year)
As a company, Aflac is stelar and a good place for a very profitable career. I've had an Accident Policy for several years, it's been a life-saver many times (broken tooth, sprained wrist, broken bone in hand, bulging disc in neck, crushed foot, and the list goes on....we received money on every injury). As with most companies in the insurance business, it does take time to build your pipeline. The primary goal as an employee is to develop a stream of residual income. This takes time and effort and a good Trainer. Most people tend to burn out after a few months of hard work (cold calls and follow-up, etc). It's hard work! But once you see that monthly residual check (and continue to grow it), life can be pretty good. They don't cover the costs for getting licensed, but you have to have some skin in the game...right? As for all of the unhappy "interns".....it makes perfect sense, this is a longer term career move and working for a few months can be discouraging. If you are willing to work hard and work smart, Aflac can be very lucrative.
Cons....? Having patience during the first year or two isn't easy. There aren't any healthcare benefits (it's a 1099 job). You do get to deduct almost everything from your taxes. The only other "Con" could be the training, make sure you attend every session and learn from the best.
Advice to Management
It would be nice to be reimbursed for the licensing and training fees....perhaps after the first 6 months or so?
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aflac (Plano, TX) in October 2017.
Very misleading up to the interview date. The position they reached out to me about was for benefits specialists or coordinator for a team of specialist - basically, they want you to sign up as "benefits specialist", a title that masks what that job position is actually for, which is an insurance salesman. And the coordinator position is "granted" after you sell a # of insurance plans. When questions were asked prior to the interview via email, the recruiter insisted that i come in for the interview and ask the director in person. No where in the email did it say this was a position primarily in sales, the word 'sales' wasn't even mentioned when that's what that job is for. When I walked in, i realized that this was a group interview, and the interview was actually a sales pitch for what aflac is to their interviewees. Basically, they should have paid us for our time for their sales pitch. a second interview is given to those that are interested in pursuing the sales position after the pitch. There were 3 ladies and 1 gentlemen there for the interview, and at the end of the "interview", 3 ladies walked out without interest and 1 gentleman stayed, not sure if he had follow up questions or what, but the 3 ladies all voiced our feelings of being scammed on our way out. People had to take a day off from work for this interview. Prior to scheduling an interview with candidates, an ethical company would disclose that it is a commission based sales job, and that you'd be required to drive around in the field for recruitments. It's a pyramid scheme type of sales, where you move up a branch if you complete a # of sales. There's nothing wrong with sales, but you shouldn't mislead serious job candidates with this nonsense. And if the goal was to educate the public via masking the interview process as a sales pitch, guess they succeeded in "educating" but failed miserably in winning the potential customers over since people walk out of the interview pissed off. The "interview" was consisted of explaining their sales packages and commissions. Case closed, it's a sales job. Stop lying and wasting peoples time.
