AFLAC is a great place to start your career but most people do not make it a whole year. It is very tough to make it, but work-life balance is great. They promote from within and based on your numbers so it is a fair culture. Would work there again if they had benefits.
Do you enjoy working at your company?
Every work experience is unique. Tell us about yours. Rate your employer.
In order to make a livable wage in this company you must make around 200 cold calls a day (roughly 1,000 a week). They did not tell me this beforehand and implied I would be receiving "warm leads" which was 100% not true. There is no base salary and no benefits, and enrolling yourself in Aflac benefits is actually more expensive than what your clients pay. The best part of the job is that you can make your own schedule and do the work wherever you want, and I found the people who worked at the office were very kind and helpful.
flexible work schedule, pleasant office atmosphere
making hundreds of cold calls a day, 100% commission with no benefits
As a regional administrator, you work directly for the regional manager. It's essentially an assistant position so take that for what it is. As a representative for Aflac it is 100% sales and commission. I would not recommend it if you need money right away or if you don't have a book of clients built up. It costs money to get a license and it takes time to build a clientele. You will be doing lots of cold calling and grinding to get appointments.
Your co-workers are there to help you and drive you to succeed. I was able to gain valuable experience every day from the job requirements and would recommend this position to anyone.
flexible schedule, work control, amazing enviroment
no base salary
A typical day at work involved self marketing, closing meetings, enrollments, and strategic planning. I learned to be self sufficient by having to complete all of my own tasks and being responsible for my own business. Management was very weak and did not try to properly train employees, which created a high turnover. The workplace culture was a very much "What have you done for me lately" culture. I was able to learn how to recruit credible employees by using a different structure then what was being trained at the time. The hardest part of my job was penetrating a saturated market. As healthcare has become more expensive, clients do not want to purchase alternative benefits. I enjoyed being able to learn how to operate a difficult field.
many awards given out, good work experience, created great business relationships.
compensation was too low, no paid time off, saturated market conditions.
Aflac is an amazing company with wonderful products. However, if you are not good at sales and closing deals, you will not make a dollar. Working at Aflac was fun, but I wasn't good at it.
Great work environment
A typical day starts with looking at career/job websites trying to find applicants that are suited for working for insurance companies like AFLAC - you then contact them either via phone or by e-mail with a standard letterhead. The more interviews you can secure as a human resource intern you are paid a salary. I learned as a human resource intern what goes into deciding who would be a good candidate for insurance sales, I was allowed the freedom to create a new template for job hiring inquiry. I did have an excellent manager who did take a chance on hiring me as an intern and I did have flexible hours in so far as I could call as many people as I wanted and stay as long as I wanted since I was an intern. The hardest part of the job was trying to secure potential interview candidates because getting paid depended on it. The most enjoyable part of the job was having the different job experience other than working sales
Having internship experience
Not getting paid if you could not secure an interview
