    Pros

    Make your own hours, unlimited potential

    Cons

    Need to be self starter, need to be ok with cold calls to succeed and pay is all 100% commission. If unable to fund gas/mileage for prospecting you will find your opportunities limited.

    Advice to Management

    Start employees with tenure or starting out that have potential a small stipend to aid in succeeding.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Aflac full-time

    Pros

    Own hours, work at your own pace, set appts, meeting biz owners

    Cons

    Very little support throughout the system....high turnover, little success in reality no matter how many doors you walk thru. Everyone knows the Duck but have no idea what it is, nor after having agents come in weekly, care to find out what aflac can do for their employees. It’s a hard way to make money, you handle every aspect.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the Duck but need a different marketing plan. Need more marketing help at the state level to assists agents. No help for agents at this level. Less trips and more marketing assistance.

    Plenty of opportunity to grow your own business and be very successful; can set yourself and your family up to live comfortably.

    Depending on who your district/region is, structure and guidance can be minimum. If you're not willing to hit the phones and cold call hard, you can get into trouble.
