Great Products and Company to Work For

Enjoyed representing the products of Aflac. Great reception in the workplace. Seemed as if we have far too many agents crawling all over each other for business.
Pros
Great Product Reception/Recognition in Workplace

Too many agents calling on same businesses

Aflac
Independent Sales Associate Representative (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYMay 25, 2018
It is 100% commission, which is not made clear in the interview processes. Their benefits start after being there for at least two years, and that is stock in the company.

There are a few good managers, but during my time there most of them were stepping down because they didn't want to have to train people. There is also a high turnover rate, because like I already mentioned it is 100% commission and they want Aflac to be your only job.

wonderful company and working environment and earning potential
Benefits Coordinator (Current Employee) –  New York, NY and Washinton DCMay 24, 2018
the problem with this job is it is commission only. There is no security at all. Also, the hours are extremely high

A typical day would be 3-4 hours in a call center, 4 hours on client-sites selling and supporting and 2 hours of record-keeping
Pros
ability to earn as much as I can
Cons
no security, daily hours too many

Without constant productivity there is potential for failure

Difficult selling situation with an already saturated area
Independent Consultant (Former Employee) –  Columbus, GAMay 20, 2018
You must have an adequate cash flow to become an agent due to low returns on any sales. You spend a lot of time in meetings,
training and on the road. There are very few successful associates that make a livable yearly wage.

Nice people
Insurance Agent (Former Employee) –  Rocky Mount, NCMay 19, 2018
Nice people but too much driving. I did not know enough locals to get in their good graces. I spent too much money on gas without getting enough financial compensation.

No Support
INSURANCE AGENT (Former Employee) –  Bridgeville, PAMay 19, 2018
It's a door to door sales job. They don't pay any benefits, they don'r give you refferals, there are no territories, there is no support. You just get sent out to knock on random doors. Sometimes I was given a list of places to go and found many of the businesses were closed sometimes the buildings weren't even standing anymore.
You can go broke working here.
Pros
None
Cons
No money

Productive and fun place to work includes gym and other activities
Customer Service Specialist II (Former Employee) –  Columbus, GAMay 19, 2018
Aflac has a wonderful work culture in there Call Center. They are flexible and the benefits are excellent. Aflac prides performance based bonuses twice a year. I learned how to self manage you are provided the tools to be able to research anything job related in order to assist all customers internal and external. The most enjoyable part of the job was EAW (employee appreciation week) this company goes all out to show how much they appreciate you. The quarterly meetings are not just informational but also entertaining. A typical day at work once you arrive you will log into the que and take back to back calls assisting policy holders with benefit information. The calls are administered back to back. I was able to learn details about all the policies that Aflac offers outside of Major Medical. The hardest part of the job was to make sure your knowledge about each policy is updated. If you keep up with updates and create file for changes this can be obtained.
Pros
Warm friendly environment. Benefits are excellent.
Cons
Not any to report

Stressful place of business
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Columbus, GAMay 17, 2018
very stressful job to work, because of non stop calls from customers about paid, denied or filed claims. On the phone for the full 8 hours except break and lunch. Most enjoyable part of the job was being off the phone for meeting.
Pros
they feed you often
Cons
always watched by supervisor like children

Its Commision Only and Its take a while to start making money
INSURANCE AGENT (Current Employee) –  Culver City, CAMay 17, 2018
The work environment is supportive but I recommend having another job while training. It takes a while to get certified to sell the product. If your not certified in their program, you will not be making money. You will also pay office rent and do a lot of driving at times. The staff is supportive but you need to go in with a plan. No sales, no money...
Pros
Learn alot about the product
Cons
The money is not always good. You hit dry seasons

Fairly Good Employment
Insurance Agent (Current Employee) –  Dawsonville, GAMay 17, 2018
Would answer phones, input data into computer, go to company's location to enroll employees, trouble shooting, preparing packets for employees. The pay is inconsistent, no health benefits.

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.
