Positive Outlook

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

Pros

High commission, low market penetration, great product. Hardest part is just setting appointments with business owners. Once you have that first appointment 85% of decision-makers will see the value in the product and make the benefits available to the employees. The employees are generally even more positive to the product and usually acquire at least the two basic policies.

Cons

No salary, no benefits as an agent.

    I worked at Aflac as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    High level of brand recognition and awareness

    Cons

    From a personal experience: Not enough preparation in training and guidance for an entry-level salesperson, solely commission based, inadequate support from management. It could possibly be a completely different experience for someone else, but not the career for me.

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow good people to go so easily, focus on retention rather than just on recruitment.
    Cold-calling is a terrible sales plan
