    Pros

    A culture of hard work and chasing after success
    Great opportunities for advancement
    No commission cap and renewable income

    Cons

    You must be your own person and create your own culture. At the end of the day, this is sales and you must be wary of that. If you want to help people and create a great lifestyle for yourself, you will have the opportunity.

    Pros

    This will depend on who your coordinator is, but in general the coordinators take a genuine interest in your success.

    Cons

    Where to start...

    -Old ineffective sales tool
    -CCLM is a pain to properly manage and plan
    -Training's are long and drawn out and you get nothing from them
    -They throw you to the wolves after week one with no real preparation
    -Way too much cold calling, system does show companies on Do Not Call or out of business, actual program support is few and far between.
    - Be prepared to hear no, get cussed out by "leads", and if you live in a relatively low income place... good luck.
    -They give you an illusion of "owning your own business", but in reality, not even close.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more efficient CCLM, Define a territory so we aren't on top of each other, HELP new associates, quit with the "Benefits Consultant", "Business Consultant" titles in job searches and be honest.

    You have a great product, but you do not give us tools to even feel confident in what we are selling. You mislead constantly. Stipend new associates while they go through training's early so they can properly know what you offer before they start soliciting business. I struggle every day to work for you.

    Pros

    You choose your own hours and can make a nice career out of Aflac.

    The commission structure is good if you plan on staying with Aflac for the long term.

    The training is fantastic. They really can make a good salesperson out of anybody with the heart to do it.

    Coworkers are super fun people. Every aflac event is a blast

    Cons

    You WILL be broke for the first year regardless how hard you work.

    No customer has ever been glad to see me in the 6 months i've been doing it. They're usually nice and all, but the fact that everybody just wants you up leave when they realize what you're up to is disheartening.

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

    Pros

    I thought I had to do everything all at once to make money. The team in New Braunfels trained me and supported me to make my numbers and hit my goals.
    Flexible hours came in place when family matters would come up.
    You get to work with fun and energetic people.
    There are contests for motivation.
    When I get a call from a policy holder and sends me their claim, I know that I am in the right place because I know I can help them out.

    Cons

    A learning curve is going from a salary position to 100% commission.

    Advice to Management

    Partnering up with another benefit consultant keeps you accountable.
