Fun and informative
WINTER RECRUITMENT INTERN (Former Employee) –  Torrance, CANovember 28, 2017
I did cold calling and held phone interviews. I helped with social media presence. I also sat in interviews and orientations. I learned how talent acquisition works, various administrative tasks, and what Aflac offers. The workplace is fun yet very individualistic. The hardest part of the job was the cold calling and the coming up with social media content. The most enjoyable was connecting with the regional manager and the camaraderie between the interns and the woman in charge of the interns.
Pros
gaining multiple useful skills
Cons
short-lived internship

Horrible Place to work
AM (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCNovember 27, 2017
This by far has been the worst company that I have worked for. Minimum pay, no room to advance and favoritism is showed, throughout the company. Education and experience will not get you anywhere in this company.
Pros
Clean building
Cons
Horrible Management, Horrible Pay, No room to advance, Favoritism is shown.

Great only if you are well established.
Independent Agent (Current Employee) –  IndianaNovember 27, 2017
Aflac is a great company to work for, but only if you are a big person of the community that you work in and only if you have the income to support you your 1st year with them. The policies and what they do is fantastic, but there is no support when it comes to making money. It wasn't my intention to leave, but I have gone about 3 months without enough income to be able to keep up on my bills.
Pros
You set your schedule, Great people behind a great company
Cons
Commission only, Hard when you don't know a lot of the community that you are in, Money is hard to come by the 1st year.

Market Saturated
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNNovember 27, 2017
This is a 1099 position, market was inundated with aflac agents who would market and area and be gone in 2 weeks. Consumers were not happy to talk to us and conditions to market were unfavorable.
Pros
Freedom to set own schedule
Cons
Market saturated, 1099 status which means no sick pay, vacation pay, benefits, etc.

Independent Agent (Current Employee) –  Columbus, GANovember 26, 2017
For the most part you are your own boss and can make your own hours. But, you must be prepared to work 40+ hours in the first few years in order to establish a client base. It is commission only so salary is all over the place. Always on the search for new accounts/clients.

Love the Culture
Business Process Analyst (Current Employee) –  Columbus, GANovember 24, 2017
AFLAC believes in work life balance and a great company to work for. The benefits are unmatched which is a great asset to the salary. Aflac believes in community and giving back. It is a relationship company so promotion is tough unless you know someone. I rank Aflac high.
Pros
Balance
Cons
Advancement is who you know

Good place to work - Only the strong survive.
District Sales Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Clearwater, FLNovember 22, 2017
Aflac is a great company, but to be successful, you must work very hard and independently. It takes a true entrepreneur; wanna-be's need not apply. On the other hand, if you are driven and are capable of doing the work, the sky is the limit.
Pros
independence
Cons
100% commission, sometimes a while between pay checks

Dissappointed

I loved AFLAC, and wait to be apart. However, the experience left me highly disappointed. I learned that where the customers are well taken care of the agents were not.

Manager-Tax (Former Employee) –  Columbus, GANovember 21, 2017
It's a dynamic company undergoing some structural changes. After 60 years in insurance, there is an effort to modernize functions and disciplines to take the risks required to stay competitive.

Aflac was a great place to work you had a work life balance. A typical day at work would be cold calling on business for about 2 -4 hours. the rest of the day was spent making follow up calls to set appointments for the next day. We had some of the best district meeting ever and the food was great.
Pros

Cons
competition very competitive

It required lots of cold-calling
Insurance Agent (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDNovember 14, 2017
Good place to start learning about the insurance business as a young college graduate if you don't mind working on commission. Was not a fan of making the suggested 500 cold calls a day.

Benefits Consultant (Current Employee) –  Covington, LANovember 13, 2017
Management wants you to succeed and will do everything possible to assist you. Fun place to work and competition is friendly, not cut-throat. Commission jobs aren't for everyone, but if you can handle rejection and are organized and self-directed, you can make a great living at this.
Pros

Pros
Great benefits and culture
Cons
Limited advancement potential

Aflac
Independent Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLNovember 12, 2017
A typical day at work entailed several forms of communication with clients, fellow agents, and those in leadership positions. Visits to client's homes and work places were an every day occurrence. Benefits counseling and claims filing. It was a fast paced occupation that required networking and a knack to understand people in order to effectively meet their needs. The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely calling a policyholder to inform them of their claim being accepted and paid!
Pros
Flexibility; I worked on my own time
Cons
No job security

Takes a certain person
Benefits Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Reading, PANovember 10, 2017
Takes a certain type of person. Don't get caught up in the sales pitch during the introduction to the business. Yes there is a lot of money to be had, but not many people actually hit the goals
Pros
Make your own schedule
Cons
Left on your own a lot
