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

Pros

Money is excellent when clients are gained (it usually takes 3+ attempts to gain a possible enrollment setting). Commission is paid as well as residuals on paid, current accounts.

Cons

Cold calling on businesses, especially the people you know. There is no salary, only commission, training is not paid, however a cold lunch was provided during training as well as lodging.

Advice to Management

Instead of long days in a room training, training should be out on the field. Would also be nice to have appointments preset instead of walking into a business unannounced, can get awkward.

    I have been working at Aflac as an intern

    Pros

    Great working environment and supervisors. People at Aflac are very understanding and flexible regarding to any issues or unexpected situations.

    Cons

    Perhaps Aflac should implement greater projects that could give some challenges to interns.
