Great idea, if you can get past the temp license.
Field Associate/Consultant (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAAugust 31, 2014
Pros: state meetings are usually pretty luxurious
Cons: commession sales, no real direction, they fill your head with ambition that they dont really see happening.
A typical day at work is cold calling and setting appointments. I've seen multiple agents come and go. The reason being is that there is a rumor about Aflac: The veteran agents take new agents in. They have them present to their friends, families and other acquaintances, at the new agent's financial expense...no company reimbursement. They then have – more... the new agent take a 17 chapter online exam, which the exam itself says, "You only need 9 chapters of this knowledge to pass and you can't skip the unneeded ones." The veteran agents don’t tell the newer ones how they got their licenses in a class. The reason behind this is that once the new agents temp licenses expire, their accounts divert to their superior. It's the way the veteran agents get easy money. They don't have to drive, pay for the lunches at meetings or attend enrollments and they still get paid. A direct quote from the State Sales Coordinator is "I like the job too much, but I love recruiting" For the above aforementioned reasons. – less

INSURANCE AGENT (Former Employee), Marion, ILAugust 27, 2014

The hardest part of the job was being able to recruit new clients, especially with the economy. My co-workers and managers were very motivating and encouraging.

Great if you like Commissions
Agent (Former Employee), Portland, ORAugust 26, 2014
Pros: lots of family time, set your own schedule, freedom, you are your own boss
Cons: freedom, every business has had an agent in before you, people can be pretty harsh/rude, commission only, no guaranteed income
This job is great if you can handle being commission only, the training isn't the best, but the products really sell themselves because they are so great, and since the brand is pretty popular, it is pretty easy to start a conversation about them. Only problem is every agent and their mother has been around the block and tried every single business – more... there is. So it is like trying to pet a beaten dog, it really doesn't work well, but when people do see how good of a product you have, and you actually sell it. The commissions are well worth it. After 10 years you are 100% vested and get to keep all commissions whether you are with AFLAC or not. – less

Stressful place to work; team leads suck!!!
Accounting Specialist II (Current Employee), Columbia, SCAugust 23, 2014
Cons: communication is sometimes kept between a few people, instead of everyone that needs to know. stress of not knowing how long employment will last.
Working at Aflac would be a little bit more enjoyable if my department had supervisors and team leads who actually wanted to help you; instead of saying think outside the box, how about you try assisting your employees and helping us understand what needs to be done. We are supposed to get 2 walk arounds everyday from a team lead who sometimes never – more... shows up or if the person doing the walk around is off, none of the other team leads will come around and check on you. They always have their Instant Message statuses on Busy or Do Not Disturb, you can walk over to see them and they give you this look or say they are so busy.....its ridiculous. We have a heavy workload with not enough employees to manage. They harp so much on production but its hard to meet production when you have to go through a middle person (account manager) to get information and they are backed up. I am a temp employee right now through Randstad and I would not recommend Randstad or applying at Aflac for Accounting Specialist positions to anyone. – less

unsupportive office
Insurance Agent (Current Employee), Bridgeport, TXAugust 21, 2014
As a company, I would recommend their products to everyone. The office that I work at is another thing. The supervisor that hired me trained me for three days and then stopped to train a new agent. My supervisor told me that she would make sure that one of the other senior agents continued my training. That was mid-March of this year and I have yet – more... to be contacted by any of the other agents to continue my training. – less

Mediocre. Requires IMMENSE dedication & time.
Insurance Agent (Supplemental Health) (Former Employee), Woodbridge, VAAugust 21, 2014
Overall experience was mediocre. AFLAC would help train you, and did their best to benefit you on any basis. However, many of the things required by the company in order to actually be profitable, one must come out their pocket to pay for training, licensure costs, etc. Training does take quite some time, and the expenses are not reimbursed. Beginning – more... to work under this company, it requires an extensive amount of time, dedication, and effort to actually make money. – less

Excellent Opportunity
District Manager (Former Employee), KENTUCKYAugust 19, 2014
Pros: financially rewarding, i made 71, 000 my first year, then never less than 100k
Cons: no paid training, no benefits, lots of travel
If you are a self starter, you like to help people and you don't mind working hard, this is a super sweet gig. If you're lazy, you will fail.

BEWARE
Independent Associate Representative (Former Employee), Charlottesville, VAAugust 18, 2014
Pros: make your own schedule, make as much $$$ as you want
Cons: not steady pay and hard industry to enter
your to your own devices, your not given any direction and am constantly told to hit your marks. You do not make a dime before selling something. business have been hit so hard by Aflac you'll be lucky to be able to continue talking to a business owner after you tell them who you represent. no co-workers , your on your own.

great people not great job
Sales Agent (Current Employee), KSAugust 18, 2014
Pros: trainer was supportive
Cons: all commission
long hours with no guarantees. The people you work with are nice but that doesn't make up for the mean and evasive people that you have to go cold calling to. The job is pretty much all cold calling. I would at lease make it that way before you try and get all your friends and family to sign up.
