Not trust worthy, always have to watch your back
Agent (Current Employee), N. CaliforniaMarch 18, 2015
Pros: Pretty brochures
Cons: Lack of leadership from the Territory Manager, No trust in management. Too many agents tripping over each other.
North California: I wouldn't recommend this as a viable career, turnover is probably 90-100%. You spend your money and time calling on businesses that are already being called on by other Colonial agents.

No solid training in overcoming objections, or making appointments, they have a 1980's mentality of - keep calling all sorts of random businesses to make 1 or 2 appointments. Yeah, well that concept failed 30 years ago!

Current method of sales is to get Aflac agents to convert their business.

With real leadership, this could be a great Company. But anyone with any skill or knowledge about this Industry has moved on.

Enjoyed the people
CASHIER/CUSTOMER SERVICE (Former Employee), Oakwood, IllinoisFebruary 27, 2013
Pros: the community
Cons: short breaks, working passed scheduled hours
A very fast paced environment. My ability to multi task has improved immensly because of this job. The managers were very flexible as were my co-workers. Lifting cases of alcohol was probably the most difficult thing I encountered throughout my daily routine.
