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

    Pros

    Great training and products to offer to clients. The compensation is fair and will be payed on time one you get your enrollments set up.

    Cons

    Most of your time is spent cold calling to business. If you have a network of people to start with, it is much better than trying to get past gate keepers all day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The training and management at AFLAC is really good and if you are willing to work hard you can have a great career.

    I worked at Aflac part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some freedom and after training, you may be able to set your own hours.

    Cons

    They really don't train you, they just want to sign up your friends and family! It's a multi- level organization and commission only.

    Advice to Management

    They could care more for their employees and not just use them.

    Pros

    The company itself is good. Has great products, enjoyed helping people.

    Upline and management for that particular location has really bad. Didn't get proper help that I was told I would get.

    Better job at focusing on their new hires and focus on the agents main goals and not their own.

    I worked at Aflac full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can get residuals....only if you write business though!

    Cons

    There were so many....frat like mentality, disrespectful to women and minorities, most top management live in the past (and on their past residuals) so have less than little interest in training/developing new recruits.

    Advice to Management

    Save for a handful of upper management, most district coordinators are so bad and know NOTHING about the business they are in. How is this a Pro-because you HAVE to learn certain tools to get yourself out of there. Case in point, I became awesome at cold calling, a skill valued anywhere else, because no one cared to help. I was a lone female working long hours at the office, and not a single one thought to give me advice, words of wisdom, mentoring. Women are NOT meant to be sexually harassed or objectified, and that was all I mostly got. Never again. You guys are going to have to deal with the waning pool of talent in the next few years, mark my words.
    Peace, and I'm glad I got out (and still get decent residuals every now and then, thanks to MY OWN EFFORTS-my own accounts I went out and closed.
