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

    Pros

    The district coordinator is very knowledgeable and is willing to help new agents build their business the right way. The team of agents also are willing to help each other and everyone celebrates each other`s successes.

    Cons

    Competition...which is a pro. Everyone seems to have a vested interest in each other`s performance. We all push each other to be successful.

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

    Pros

    Aflac is a nationally known company with competitive benefits. The sky is the limit for anyone who is motivated and wants to be self-employed. I have had great support from management with continuing education opportunities.

    Cons

    Sales positions are commission only so if you can't live without a paycheck every week this is not the job for you. Also, it is a sales position and you get lots of doors slammed in your face. But the more doors you knock on the more successful you'll be. It's all about the numbers and it's hard work.

    Advice to Management

    There is too much emphasis put on recruiting and not enough on developing the existing sales force. Agents are competing against each other instead of competing against other companies.
