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

    Pros

    Great benefits that start immediately, 128 hours of PTO for 1st year, Employee Appreciation Week, profit sharing bonus, 4% 401k match, and more. Aflac is an amazing company to work for, but if you're located in Omaha, Ne there is no advancement at the call center unless you're willing to relocate or wait 10 years for a lead or manager position to open.

    Cons

    No room to advance in Omaha, Ne unless you're willing to relocate or wait for someone to retire. Always in queue (understaffed), information can be difficult to locate in the system, and the information your supposed to know or know where to locate can be a bit overwhelming (especially when things are always changing).

    Advice to Management

    Need better/updated resources, more employees to help with call volume, and update the phone system to offer better options.

    I have been working at Aflac full-time

    Pros

    Freedom to set own schedule. Unlimited income if you are superior at cold calling.

    Cons

    Poor product knowledge training, poor field training, left to find leads on my own very early on. Total cold calls. Have to pay for a lead provider or use phone book/go door to door.

    Advice to Management

    Be more selective with choosing DSC's. Provide them with specifics on how to train new associates.
