Coming for your prospects!!
Insurance Associate (Former Employee) –  Jefferson City, MOJuly 22, 2018
Only apply if you have thousands of leads to give to your coworkers so they can cash in on you!! It takes three people to get a "group" going so keep in mind if you think this is a easy thing to do your crazy. Expect commission only and make sure that you work your butt of and make cold calls all day.

Great company overall, but not much room for advancement
Agent Validation Specialist (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCJuly 20, 2018
Working at Aflac is ok at first, but your career will become at a stand still if you don't know the right people. I will say that the company overall does more for their employees than any other company I have worked for.

These reviews crack me up!
Benefits Specialist (Current Employee) –  Huntington, WVJuly 20, 2018
This job requires individuals that are willing to work to achieve their goals. People walk in this job on the first day and complain when they realize they won’t get paid to sit around all day and do nothing. Yes, sometimes it can be very stressful and you have days where you don’t accomplish much and feel a little low. But on any given day you can walk into a business do something as simple as have a conversation and eventually walk away with thousands of dollars because of it. People complain about not having a manager standing beside them all day doing their work for them, YOU DONT NEED TRAINING to prospect! If you can’t have a simple conversation then you have more problems than you realize. You do however need training to enroll which Aflac is the best company in my expierence at teaching employees how to administer benefits. All this being said if you can’t tough it out for a while, grind through some hard times to make as much money as you set your mind to, while also building you’re own retirement via residual income, then please McDonald’s is always hiring and you can finally be with your own kind of whiney spoiled adult children. What is wrong with people these days. Shame on a lot of you people in the previous reviews. LAZY!
Pros
Unlimited income, flexible hours, and job security
Cons
You probably won’t make it... you’re too lazy.

At Aflac I worked in many different areas. I loved learning about what agents and brokers do. EAW is a wonderful event at Aflac. That week is full of fun and teamwork.

Good Company
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 19, 2018
Aflac is a good company where you get to be your own boss and work when you want to work because it is strictly commission based. This can be a blessing or a curse. It gets very frustrating when the potential clients very rarely cooperate with you.

Lack of Management support
Independent Insurance Agent (Former Employee) –  Palermo, NDJuly 18, 2018
Management does not encourage mentors to teach product knowledge or sales techniques. Management not involved in employees journey to succeed. Supervisors too bust selling for themselves to help new employees.
Pros
"Self Employed"
Cons
Lack of support

You are your own boss
Benefits Consultant and Asset Management (Current Employee) –  Glen Allen, VAJuly 18, 2018
The first month is spent learning and mastering the products and communication skills. Management is more than willing to help whenever you need it. You have to really be careful about time management as this career is strictly commission based. A majority of this career is driving, conversing, and maintaining relationships with local businesses. Also focuses heavily on technology for enrollments.
Pros
Great management. Flexible hours
Cons
Commission based

Takes care of Agents and Claimants
District Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJuly 17, 2018
AFLAC always made sure they put their claimants needs ahead of profits. On several occasions, I have witnessed the fact that they paid claims that were not legally required, however, they made the morally and ethically decision to assist claimants in need rather thab consider bottom line profits to the company.
Pros
Happy place to work
Cons
Absolutely None!

Sales
Agent (Former Employee) –  Casa Grande, AZJuly 17, 2018
Hated Sales. Cold calling is hard in all sales jobs. I worked with a friend to help out but I hated the whole thing. Money is good if you can make the sales.
Pros
Money
Cons
Cold Calling

Another Temporary job
Independent Agent (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEJuly 16, 2018
I took this job because they made it sound like there were very few agents in Omaha, only to find out there were a ton of agents. Everywhere I went, someone had been there a few days or weeks before.

Lead Account Service Specialist (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCJuly 16, 2018
A typical day at work is a long day. From meetings to actually doing my job. Some of the task are not being set up to be successful. There is a lack of resources, training and people knowing what should or should not be done. Management is aware of issues that we face but does nothing about it. A lot of people are leaving the company and going somewhere else where they are paid more for doing the same job. A lot of promotions are done and the jobs are not posted on the job site. So people are not notified or given the opportunity to see if they qualify for the position. There is no advancement. In order to advance a person has to get fired, leave the company or move to a different department.

Spend more in gas and time than you make. You put in all the time and effort and your trainer gets half. They want you to eat, sleep and breathe Aflac.

Unlimited potential, yet income security is slow to come.
Producer / Writer Health Insurance, Self Employed (Former Employee) –  Midlothian, VAJuly 15, 2018
Great potential, yet it would take over a year to start earning enough to live on. If you were lucky and if you really worked at it for many, many hours, this is not necessarily a negative yet when your on commission, if you'er not being compensated it begins to be very discouraging & disappointing. A work day is up to the individual, but of course the more hours you put in the greater your chances for the long term. Basic Life insurance writer, producer, St. of VA licensure, class and test fees paid by individual.
Obtaining enough clients and the delay in rewards.
Your time is your own to do with what you want. Very flexible, yet, demanding in-order to maintain costs of living.
Pros
Great potential and freedom.
Cons
Slow to gain income.

Difficult place to work
Insurance Benefits Counslor (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVmJuly 13, 2018
If need to earn money and have no back up Aflac is not the place to be. It takes time to get any sort of residual income and the constant daily prospecting. Supplemental Benifits are a tough market, now days almost all companies offer some form of supplemental voluntary benefits. Years ago AFLAC was one of the only companies around that is no longer true. I do have to say they are one of the most ethical companies I’ve seen. Long hours no benefits no base pay is hard. If you have at back up or want to earn extra money it’s good. If need money from day one avoid all commission only jobs.
Pros
Set your own hours
Cons
Pay
