I have been working at Aflac as a contractor (More than 5 years)

Pros

Freedom=Self-Employed, Learned Cold calling via phone and going from business to business. Learned Public Speaking. Aflac helps people which is a great feeling.

Cons

Rude HR and other gatekeepers. At least 90% of new agents fail within 6 months for a variety of reasons. It is very hard work. Hard to keep motivated, hard to self regulate and work at least 8 hrs a day prospecting vs organizing your files and chatting with co-workers. Most people just don't have the self-discipline to do this.

Advice to Management

Very disappointed at how inflated the projected income you make in the first year is.

    I have been working at Aflac as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I learned ALOT! The entire sales cycle from prospecting to servicing my clients. Gradually became a good public speaker. Good job to learn sales, now able to qualify for other, better sales positions.

    Cons

    Probably 90-95% of new agents quit within the first 6 months. It is hard hard work. No quick money. Most people do not have the self discipline to work 8hrs a day. Each office is so different, might or might not get a good district manager.

    Advice to Management

    Disappointed in how much the income potential was inflated. Most of the new agents are not going to make 35k the first year.
