Current Contractor - Independent Agent Representing Aflac (Sales) in Hammonton, NJ
Current Contractor - Independent Agent Representing Aflac (Sales) in Hammonton, NJ
Approves of CEO

I have been working at Aflac as a contractor

Pros

No pressure to perform. Totally on your own. Great name brand.Very good products (varies by state). Very good company marketing support. Company does pay claims incredibily fast (4-5 days).

Cons

Training is extremely poor. Company is non-discriminate on who they hire, which causes problems when prospecting accounts with prior Aflac experience. Little local management support. If you don't sell .... you don't make money. No benefits provided ... you're on your own!

Advice to Management

Stop taking an Amway approach to your busines development. Hire qualified professionals, and limited the number by territorial. This would result in greater new business production & retention, and a much lower sales associate turn-over rate.
