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

    Pros

    many training opportunities, nice people and good products. no designated territories. you set your own schedule, can work from home if you choose. market materials (brochures, folders, application forms etc) are available at no cost. very recognizable brand, established company. people working here come from very diverse backgrounds. you earn commission on aflac plans you get for yourself

    Cons

    no benefits, no choice in who your DSC (district sales coordinator) is, high turnover, high rejection, you must work hard to get and maintain accounts. poorly designed office atmosphere, basically you either pay for your own office or cublicle, or you have to sit in the bullpen area with other new agents-will fills up quickly, especially during the week. bring your own office supplies/laptop and hope you get an operating phone. commission only sales position, no base salary. many agents oversaturate the market or mislead people regarding products. had companies tell me they'd never work with aflac because of a terrible experience with an agent. you'll be encouraged to cold call or sell door to door to companies, tough to tap into. you have multiple agents soliciting the same prospects and agents from other regions will be trying to get into yours. high travel involved. two compensation options, accelerated or deferred. accelerated they advance you commission but if the person doesnt pay or cancels you get hit with chargebacks, so i took deferred- but compensation is extremely slow. most successful people here are those who got in very early and have large books of business or people with many network connections. IMO its fine as a side business, but very tough for full time, especially in the first year when you're just starting.out

    Advice to Management

    be more upfront with candidates at interviews, many associates end up leaving because they had misconceptions about the exact responsibilities of the position. be more selective in choosing candidates, it will bring a higher quality workforce and more professionalism
