Pros

Good fellowship, if you have many contacts this would work for you.

Cons

Everything is cold calling unless you bring in your own contacts. There are no leads and training does not teach you how to get pass the 'gatekeepers" to offer products. If you have lots of contacts that you can get referrals from you should do ok.

    Pros

    Own hours, uncapped gains, company promotions, unlimited growth potential. If your back office staff sucks, you likely will too.

    Cons

    I went to an Aflac training meeting (closest one from the greater Phila area was almost in Baltimore) and was promptly met by a flashy upper sales coordinator trying to impress you with how much hair gel he can afford to use. His advise was on par, but it was clear half the interviewees were less than competent but he was giving them the same 'you can make X amount of money next month' speech. It helps to have a good back office; without a good district sales coordinator right above you it's hard to get started. Most people fail with Aflac, but those who succeed seem to have good things to say about it.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of micro management and so many sales coordinators makes it hard to point the finger when something is wrong.

    I worked at Aflac as an intern

    Pros

    Easy interview process. The hours are flexible and management isn't strict.

    Cons

    The position is a trick to make existing workers more money.

    Advice to Management

    Very hard. They are not paying you but need to obtain a health insurance licences which cost $100.
