    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.

    You get comfortable making cold calls and presenting in front of higher-ups from other companies.

    You need a lot of good contacts to begin with.
