    Benefits Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aflac (Plano, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    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.
