I felt as though the amount of support given was completely misrepresented, particularly for a new agent. During the initial recruitment presentation, I asked if they helped with leads, training, planning a path to success for new agents and the response was yes to all of my questions. Approximately 6 weeks after starting, they finally sent me to "Sales Training" and the whole week was focused on getting appointments in scripted, role play sessions. They only want appointment setters. When I directly asked for help by giving me advice on how to successfully plan my career with Aflac, knowing that the person empowered to help me had a significant amount of experience & success, my request was treated as an objection that needed to be overcome rather than giving me useful guidance? Also, when I tried to share some feedback on what would be helpful, the reply I received was, "This is how we do things, we are not open to changing the way we work!" Needless to say, the majority of new agents end up leaving after working for a few months without pay or support. There is a lack of organization, there is an overt amount of favoritism shown/given to certain cliques within the office and a poor overall culture.
I met a few good people and made a couple of friends.
