Great people, though not upfront
Benefits Consultant (Former Employee) –  NCFebruary 8, 2018
The people and culture at Aflac was great but they are not upfront with the fact that it can take 1-5 years to make a living. Meanwhile agents are spending money while not earning any commission. Great if you live in urban areas, not so great for rural areas. Lots of traveling and visiting busineses over and over again just to be rejected.
Pros
Culture, people
Cons
Commission only, amount of time it takes to earn commission

too many agents

Independent Insurance Agent (Former Employee) –  Glendale, AZFebruary 7, 2018
The position is 100 percent commission based. Entering into sales with no sales experience earning 100 percent on commissions is not ideal for someone entering into sales.

It is fun and good as a temporary job
Office Administrator (Former Employee) –  Rapid City, SDFebruary 7, 2018
It was fun working for Aflac but if you don't become an Agent there is no good future there because of the lack of hours provided, good for starters or students starting.

AFLAC offers great products and is a good company.
HEALTH INSURANCE AGENT (Former Employee) –  Spring, TXFebruary 7, 2018
AFLAC is a good career for someone who only wants to sell insurance. I am more interested in servicing clients. Also, it has been many years since I have worked at AFLAC so I could not speak to how if functions now.

Great if you can live on commission only

Your business
Benefits Advisor (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAFebruary 1, 2018

Pros
work from home, make your own schedule
Cons
total commission

Depends on the agent
Independent Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYJanuary 30, 2018
When the job states independent insurance agent but you sign with contract that means you have to answer to Aflac without a regularly paid job with benefits. BUT! It all depends on the individual; if you like challenge and going out and talking and selling then it is for you and you will advance (depending on your manager) but if selling or cold calling and being in situations that are awkward and hate anything to do with insurance, it is not for you. BE WARNED THAT YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR YOUR OWN STUFF. Again, double edged sword.
Pros
Big on community help - one team one dream
Cons
Competitive, can be cut throat, beware who you trust to work with

Independent Sales Agent (Former Employee) –  Ketchikan, AKJanuary 30, 2018
If you are looking for a place to set your own schedule and work on commission, this is the Company. For the most part you are able to do what you want, at the end of the day there is still someone to report to.
