Tons of room for growth when willing to put the work in.
Benefits Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCFebruary 23, 2018
After working for Aflac for over a year, I would say its a good place to work. It can be stressful at times and demanding but worth it. There are tons of room for growth as well as a number of people to help.

Commercial Lending, and Sales (Former Employee) –  Morgantown, WVFebruary 23, 2018
The people were nice to work with but it was commission based pay and you didn't really have any insight or training to be able to make enough money as an intern.

Benefits Consultant (Former Employee) –  Worcester, MAFebruary 22, 2018
Not a lot of people want Aflac these days. Sure, some do. However, it is not enough for someone on a commission only basis. Most companies offer sufficient health insurance plans to their employees as is.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Hierarchy

Aflac
District Sales Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VAFebruary 22, 2018
Aflac overall is a great company to work for. The down side along with any commission based employment is that there are slow months and busy months. Once you move to management things are great, but you are encouraged to recruit as many people as you can with the hopes that even a few of them will open even one account. The high turn over makes it very hard to get attached to any of the agents and also makes you feel guilty for making this seem more obtainable that it is.
Pros
flexable
Cons
no guarenteed income

not very good
Fiscal Analysis Intern (Former Employee) –  North CarolinaFebruary 22, 2018
The company culture is very cut-throat and the management doesn't let you have advancement opportunities even if you try. Plus, they cheat people often...be careful as one of those people may even be you!

Just okay
Agent (Former Employee) –  Gates, NCFebruary 21, 2018
It does offer flexible hours, but the more you work the more you get paid.

Pay is commission based only.

you are pushed to sell as much as you can, and to anyone and everyone. Even though the company itself does not push for that.

It is very cut throat, some will steal your accounts that you are working on.
Pros
self employed
Cons
not very ethical (people not the company)

Individual Business owner
Benefits Advisor (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVFebruary 21, 2018
Each employee is a private business owner that works their own schedule, no salary it is commission based so however much you chose to work will correlate to your income.

Interesting work place
Human Resources Intern (Former Employee) –  Elmwood Park, NJFebruary 20, 2018
A good place to start off, as a recruiting intern. Provides an individual with the opportunity to grow personally and professionally. I was an intern and was pushed out of my comfort zone which I was grateful for.

Sold a dream that will drive you broke trying to achieve
Associate (Former Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNFebruary 20, 2018
You are sold on being your own boss, fancy trips, and good money. If you have someone who can support you then you may have a chance You will spend tons of gas and countless time to get somewhat decent pay days, but they are few and far between.
Pros
make your schedule
Cons
no benefits, slow to start, not enough pay for the work you put in

Noteworthy Company
Account Implementation Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAFebruary 19, 2018
In a world where employees constantly strive to feel they're part of something bigger, AFLAC is a shining example of what a large company would be like, when they focus on people.

More times than not, companies grow too large and forget about the people. That was never the case with AFLAC. EVERY employee matters. Every voice is heard. Every opinion is taken in to consideration. Without this collaboration, the company would surely fail. I would recommend them as one of the greatest places to work, for as long as I live.
Pros
a plethora of on/offsite benefits
Cons
Sometimes training classes were too long

Independent Sales Agent (Current Employee) –  Greenville, NCFebruary 19, 2018
You need to be good at cold calling and hearing the word no a lot. IF you are are good at sale and knowing your product you can make it with with company. Training is first class and the support is world class.

Competitive and Rewarding
AGENT (Current Employee) –  Dallas-Fort Worth, TXFebruary 17, 2018
Overall a great place to work: the earning potential is tremendous and they have a great training program.

The most difficult part of the job is the degree of cold-calling involved and the best part of the job is the confidence AFLAC offers with their products.
Pros
Commissions are generous.
Cons
A great deal of cold-calling.

I enjoyed working there and I wished that I was trained properly.
Advisor Associate (Former Employee) –  Augusta, GAFebruary 16, 2018
Management needs to spend more time with new associates. Make sure they are ready for the field. The products are good and will yield great benefit to the customer as well as the organization.
Pros
You are your own boss.
Cons
You only get paid if you open new accounts and service old accounts

Good way to start
District Manager (Former Employee) –  Washing and IdahoFebruary 16, 2018
AFLAC is a fine way of getting started in the insurance industry if you lack a college degree. Because it is commission only it is extreme highs and lows with a lot of perks when you are among the top, but not in forms of cash.

what you learned
Sales (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCFebruary 16, 2018
I have learned a lot about the Aflac products and how to go into businesses to try to persuade them to let me open up an Aflac account. It is not a hard job, but it is just a learning process.

No respect for temps
Accounting Specialist III (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCFebruary 16, 2018
Temping at this place is like not existing. They overlook you if you are not a permanent employee there and there are a lot that we were not able to participate in when the company held functions. Also payrate sucks if you are a temp as well. Seems as if they make anyone a manager because my manager was very petty and unprofessional. It's all about who you know at this place if you wish to get ahead. They even tell you when you had to take your lunch and be back.
Pros
Off on holidays
Cons
Not a cohesive team playing place to work.
