Potential for success but an unstable source of income
Insurance Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Fairfax, VA – December 23, 2014
For a job that largely relies on cold calls and who you know, I found that Aflac at first can be very difficult. Not many people want to talk to an insurance salesman. However, given hard work and perseverance, there is great potential for success.

there was no guidance or trainging for the job. you were just thrown to the wolves and were expected to rock it. if you don't know what you're doing and have never done this type of work before you will fail

This is not a job for everyone. You are working as an independent contractot with a major insurance company. Your income is based on your own hard work and the quality of your services. This job is only for those who have business mind and desire to have their own business.

If you need 3,000 dollars per month every month, this might not be the job for you. But if you're patient, easy to talk to, and can be supported financially by someone other than yourself for the first 6 months to a year, this could be a great opportunity. Those who hold out for a year or two will certainly reap the rewards as long they continue working.

AFLAC was my first real job out of high school. They were willing to give me a chance in the IT department and really have me shaped my career. I would recommend any college graduate to take a look at this company. They value their employees.

Aflac was a great place to work at. The management was very genuine, and cared about their employees.
The only thing I would change is they are only 100% commission based. It is tough to convince a recent college grad to work for the company when they do not have any savings to live off of until they close their first deal.
Aflac is an insurance sales agency that internally functions as a pyramid business. Notice I did not say scam, since it is a beneficial, legitimate agency, The pyramid comes in the recruitment and compensation of the company.
Agent (Former Employee) – Greenville, NC – June 6, 2017
This was not a good working environment because the company had so many agents in the field already hounding companies to purchase the products that there was no room for growth. The companies were hostile towards new agents coming in and it was stressful to find enough interested companies to even make a profit. I had to pay back my salary because people jumped on their contracts. Basically, I didn't get paid for my work and dedication. I took the job assuming it was a job and not volunteer work. I do volunteer work already and unfortunately I can't pay my bills on the volunteer work.
Sales (Current Employee) – West End, NC – June 6, 2017
Great company to work for. I am just looking to stay put and not travel so much! Lots of room for advancement, but I am just not willing to work that much out of town. It is a must to branch out with AFLAC.
