"Great Company but Not for Everyone"

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

Pros

I thought it was a great company. I thought the training they put you through was fabulous. My classmates were great. I loved the spirit of those who worked for Aflac. Sales seminar is a lot of fun. I believed in the products.

Cons

It is 100% commission. Very tough to sell in the market I was in. I think if you were able to become a part of a sales office early in their establishment or if there was turn over and you could take over some account to get you going and keep stable that would be helpful but that was not the case for me. Plus I was hired on with about 8 other people and we all ended up prospecting and calling on the same companies. Just made it look like the office didn't have much communication.

    I have been working at Aflac as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Aflac is an incredible "Business Opportunity". If you are looking to be rewarded for your hard work and commitment, Aflac is the right choice. Too many people don't look at this opportunity as a business. If you just want an hourly wage stay where you are, if you want an opportunity to earn a large six figure income in a business with little overhead investment you can't beat Aflac.

    Cons

    Trying not to become complacent with success. Keep pushing.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more incentives to veteran agents.
