The product was a very good investment, just a little over priced. This is due to you paying for the sales man, under writer, manager, office manager, and so on. You get no help from anyone because its always a cut-throat environment. I you have any accounts and leave to manager takes them over and get all the money, so they try to get you to leave. Never got a bonus that I earned. All of it reminds me of a pyramid scheme.
Aflac is a good company, they have wonderful benefits for their customers. They help out a lot of people in their time of need. It made me feel good when someone received their compensation from Aflac. I like to know I helped someone when they had an accident or were diagnosed with Cancer or had a heartache. That was the most enjoyable part of the job.
Aflac provided an excellent opportunity to advance as much as I was willing to. I got business strictly through cold calling. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting wonderful people and helping them in their time of need.
Excellent Product - Bad Time For New Associate - Economy, New President, Businesses Concerned
Benefits Advisor/Agent for Voluntary Benefits (Current Employee) – Sherman Oaks, CA – November 29, 2018
I love the product as it helps people's lives very much. I wanted to help others and feel like I was doing something that made the world a better place. Unfortunately, as a new President was elected, business owners have become very cautious about bringing on new programs or make changes. Most saw value in the product but were not willing to implement Aflac, as I've been told to come back in 6-9 months. Business owners repeatedly said they are cautious as they do not know what changes the President is going to make that may affect their businesses. I'm wanting to return to my Administrative roots because working for Aflac is a commission only salary model. I find it difficult to make a salary that I can generate a solid financial foundation.
Too political, Cut throat competition, bad mentors/teaching
Benefits Advisor/Sales Agent (Current Employee) – West Hollywood, CA – November 23, 2018
While appointed by Aflac, I was assigned to work out of an office located on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood. The parking for the office is street parking only requiring several block's of walking, at times inconvenient. There is a monthly calendar of companies, leads, authorizing Aflac to offer assurance/insurance product's. Weekly meetings to be held at the main office, down town on Olympic, and parking is again inconvenient. People are respectful and pleasant.
INDEPENDENT INSURANCE AGENT Owner and Operator (Current Employee) – Amarillo, TX – November 17, 2018
Aflac does not value it's veteran agents. The hardest part of the job - time management, lack of support. Love my policyholders. Great job for a select few - those that management decides are worth favoring.
