Pros: Free lunches, flexible schedule, great team
Cons: Lots of driving, Not a lot of structure, so it requires a lot of discipline
I learned a lot from my job as an Aflac Sales Agent. I wasn't persuasive enough to be successful, and didn't like so much time cold-calling, but it could be a great career for someone willing to put in a lot of hard work and long hours.
If you aren't setting at least 2 quality appointments a week, you will fail in this business. If you land any large accounts, you are lucky - these are harder to get, but pay the highest.
Manager and team were great. It was a positive, supportive environment to work in, except the customers sometimes weren't so positive! I also learned how lazy people are- customers not calling you when they say they will, etc. And a hard product to sell. Customers usually see you as low priority, which makes Aflac a hard business to be in. But many people have been successful at it.
