With AFLAC I set my own hours to work but it was only commission based pay. If you don't work you don't get paid. But overall AFLAC is a wonderful company to work for if you are a single person with no kids.
The problem is that it is a very seasonal job. Insurance industry is active from November to March. After that point, it slows down. At this point I have relocated to Tennessee and want to start over. I have family here and would like to start a new career here.
Working your own hours s great.
When people don't pay there premium, you get charge back on your commissions.
Fair when assisting employees and nice people to work with

This company is nothing short of a pyramid scheme. They will tell you anything to get you to work for them. HUGE LIARS, PAY SUCKS, The only people that make any money there are the ownersand their friends/pet empoyees. SCAMMERS.

Independent Health Benefits Consultant (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 5, 2016
AFLAC is hands down one of the best and most ethical companies for which to work. However, where the brand excels the infrastructure of the weekly operations leaves a great deal to be desired especially in the way of training. As a new employee the expectations were not as clearly conveyed as one might hope also, the compensation structure is explained to the new hires in a way which seems to be most confusing and difficult to comprehend with much of the staff espousing differing opinions on any given topic.
Agent (Former Employee) – Fullerton, CA – April 28, 2016
If you are independently motivated, it's a good fit. If you want a part time job, this is not good. In order to be able to make a living here, you must work full time hours and be self motivated. There's limited training and you do have to learn a lot of things on your own either online or by making mistakes.
Great sales contests (annual trips, money contests, etc)
Independent Associate (Current Employee) – Loveland, CO – April 27, 2016
Every one at the Regional office in Loveland is great to work with. Once you begin training they don't just throw you out in the field by yourself and tell you get this many appointments. They work with you until you are comfortable to do it on your own. They encourage you in every way and recognize your hard work !
