Great place to work / Too many agents in one area.
Insurance producer (Former Employee) –  Texarkana, ARMay 15, 2018
This really is a great place to work, however, there is no such thing as an assigned territory. Which makes it extremely difficult to find a business that a few agents have not already visited.
Pros
Great pay. Awsome family time
Cons
Too hard to find new business

Independent Insurance Agent (Former Employee) –  Glendora, CA 91741May 15, 2018
This is a commission based job. It can be lucrative if you are motivated and have the right backing on your side. Although it is an independent role, the right guidance is necessary to succeed.

Aflac
Independent Producer (Current Employee) –  Greenbelt, MDMay 15, 2018
The company overall was good, however, the territories were never balanced.I could walk into a company that had seen a number of Aflac reps and there was nothing I could say since the territory was not protected

"Come over here, boy. Have a cigar. You're gonna go far."
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Pepperell, MAMay 13, 2018
Making lots of cold calls on the phone ONLY. No pay until you are licensed and have CLOSED/ completed deals. You are your own IT, Administrative Assistant, Sales and Marketing Manager. You start off working in an office utilizing it's resources (i.e. lead lists, phones, office supplies, etc.) only to find out that you are required to pay for all those things eventually.
Pros
Sales atmosphere
Cons
Sales atmosphere.

Great company and product
Aflac Agent (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLMay 12, 2018
This is a Commission position and you make it based on your desire to do the required things to succeed. These include contacting daily enough people to explain in detail the benefits of Aflac policies and then enrolling them. Management is good and there to help and it has a great workplace culture. Hardest part of job is one must be an extrovert and enjoy constantly meeting new people.
Pros
Great product and very helpful management
Cons
cold calling

Cold-Call, Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAMay 11, 2018
A typical day at work is hundreds of phone calls. I learned how to be a cold-caller specialist, run my own business, manage an office, take on many roles, market myself in person.

Challenging but well compensated
Insurance Agent (Former Employee) –  Farmington, NMMay 10, 2018
AFLAC is a company where the career growth is up to the individual. It is a cut-throat industry and you get paid on how hard you work. Once pay does come in, it is very lucrative. However, to get to that point, it takes time and devotion to the job.
Pros
Good pay, flexible schedule
Cons
challenging and cut throat

Time consuming
Insurance sales (Former Employee) –  Benton County, ARMay 9, 2018
Not very satisfied with the experience of being a sales person since one really depends 100% on sales for survival so it is a tremendously stressful situation if you have family members to take care of. Also it feels like you are pushing people into buying something that it might not be as helpful to them but it will help your pocket.

Freedom of schedule
Insurance Agent (Current Employee) –  Maryville, MOMay 9, 2018
Making your own schedule is nice but there is no base salary. It is commission only, and that is hard when you first start out because all you are doing is trying to set appointments and build your book of business. If you have a good savings set up and can go a month without a paycheck then I would recommend trying it out.

Not what I expected.
Benefits Consultant (Former Employee) –  Johnson City, TNMay 7, 2018
I was promised training and they told me I didn’t need any experience to start a great career. However if you can go for months without a check then you will be fine but until you book an appointment and sell insurance you don’t make anything. It will eat through your savings. No training so if you have experience you will be fine but if you don’t look somewhere else.
Cons
No training, no benefits.
