I have been working at Aflac as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Be your own boss (after training)
Unlimited Earning Potential
Great system for staying on track to meet your goals.

Cons

Poor Training. I was not allowed to use any of the company office supplies ie fax, printer ect.. Lots of cold calling. Bad scripts. They encourage you to lie to your potential clients. High Turnover, when you interview they try to sell you the job instead of seeing if you are qualified. That being said they will hire anyone.

All and All a good job, if your finances are in order and you can afford to not make any money for the first month to two months.

Keep in there and it will pay off

Advice to Management

Don't promote just anyone to be a trainer.

    I worked at Aflac as a contractor

    Pros

    Great brand recognition. Lots of positive media with the AFLAC duck. The products you can sell are pretty good for supplemental insurance.

    Cons

    The biggest competition that AFLAC has is other AFLAC agents. Didn't enjoy knocking on doors of businesses. It was my first sales job. High turnover rate because it was 100% commission based.

    Advice to Management

    If AFLAC had a way of starting agents out with a Salary, it would be better and the turnover rate wouldn't be so high.
