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

Pros

Good office atmosphere. District sales associates willing to mentor aspiring agents. My mentor's administrator was extremely helpful in sales training and studying for the Virginia State Health Insurance Exam. Learned effective sales techniques.

Cons

Not much personal interaction with associates. Sales training meetings are boring and ineffective. Almost everything must be done yourself. Far too much cold calling to start out. Fast-Start seminar in Maryland is motivating, though networking is tough if you don't have immediate or second degree connections to business owners or HR representatives. You are your own business- there is no salary, only commission. If you have any past criminal history, consider yourself unqualified.

Advice to Management

Training should be shadow training. Aspiring agent should be able to shadow a district sales associate for a period of two weeks to see how the best producers organize themselves, cold call, and network with potential clients.

    I worked at Aflac full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family oriented company that provides employees with the tools to successfully perform job duties.

    Cons

    The call center should offer 24 her customer service and more opportunities to work from home.

    Advice to Management

    Call Center Management needs to be rotated. They have become too comfortable in their positions. Call centers are evolving and new management may be needed to meet the new challenges.

    I have been working at Aflac as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very good products that really help people.

    Cons

    Without good management, new agents will most likely fail before they get to year 2. Being paid commission only is a real hardship for many agents.

    Advice to Management

    None
