    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Aflac full-time (More than a year)


    Freedom to be your own boss, trips, bonuses, renewable income (instead of one time commission), career instead of just a job. FORTUNE 500 and a World's most Ethical Company. Great training (at least here in Wyoming) and a family mentality. Great family/work balance.


    No base pay, can be a slow start at first, you have to be very organized and self-driven, have to be licensed in life and health to sell insurance (but my management help with the process).

    Advice to Management

    Don't loose focus on your clients, while trying to grow. Opening new accounts is wonderful, but not at the loss of your current customers. Balance is possible. Also, reward great customer service along with great sales.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Aflac.


    I got an e-mail from Aflac District Recruiter claiming they found my resume online and would like to schedule a meeting to learn more about the position.
    The sales manager kept me waiting for more than 20 mins. During the conversation, he gave a overview of the company and the position. Since the position is commission based, I said this does not quite fit my expectation.
