Aflac offers a great product that can be so helpful to so many people. Sales is a tough business. Don't expect anyone to give you anything. Get everything in writing. Demand training as they are required to provide such. You must be a self starter and prepared to talk with a lot of people about touchy subjects - money & insurance
Agent Representative (Former Employee) – Tustin, CA – October 19, 2017
I got hired on a commission only rate and was trained or several months. The downside for me was learning in a group setting and working without understanding the needs of the customer which a provider needs to express in cold sales.
Good growing company for an excellent sales pro
It could become alot of busywork, if a schedule is not made upon a sale because of the process insurance, providers need to implement afterwards, done individually.
Agent (Former Employee) – Troy, MI – October 2, 2017
Training was good. Support for skills brought in was very poor. Accounts obtained were taken by other agent and management did not rectify the issue. Too many agents working the same region. No sense of respect for others hard work.
Agent (Current Employee) – Garden City, NY – August 6, 2017
All Aflac Agents are provided the same leads making it difficult to cold call because receptionists are getting calls from all over. I thought Aflac would sell itself because I love everything about it including the coverage.
BUSINESS SOLUTIONS AGENT (Current Employee) – Mount Juliet, TN – August 3, 2017
I enjoy working for Aflac. The hardest part of the job is getting out of the door to go to work mentally. The most enjoyable part of the job is having the flexibility to have a work/life balance. The atmosphere is energetic and you have to be willing to go out and meet people. The management team just wants you to go and do your job just like most management teams.
work your on schedule
if you don't like working on commissions then it is not the place for you
Agent (Former Employee) – Garden City, NY – August 1, 2017
Aflac features a very positive, cooperative environment in which your coworkers and managers provide plenty of encouragement and advice. The managers will not stand over your shoulder and so you will have to be a self-starter to succeed.
The compensation is straight commission. The sky's the limit.
The compensation is straight commission. There's no guarantee of compensation.

Great company to work for but you need to believe you could do it be very consistent. Be ready for allot of rejection but its very rewarding when your able to help employees cover there families for the unexpected.
AGENT (Current Employee) – boardman ohio – July 10, 2017
Aflac is a great company to work for but it has the down falls of any commission only based job. The commission rate is great but there is weeks you will go without a paycheck because that is the name of the game.
Agent (Former Employee) – Greenville, NC – June 6, 2017
This was not a good working environment because the company had so many agents in the field already hounding companies to purchase the products that there was no room for growth. The companies were hostile towards new agents coming in and it was stressful to find enough interested companies to even make a profit. I had to pay back my salary because people jumped on their contracts. Basically, I didn't get paid for my work and dedication. I took the job assuming it was a job and not volunteer work. I do volunteer work already and unfortunately I can't pay my bills on the volunteer work.
Contract Agent (Former Employee) – Columbus, GA – May 23, 2017
Has the potential to bring you a great harvest if trained correctly. I really enjoyed the flexibility and the other agents being so supportive. Opportunity was there but you must fight to keep your hard work intact.
Agent (Current Employee) – Ridgeland, MS – May 20, 2017
This company would be great if they cared more about their agents in the field. The compensation is way to low for all the hours you have to put in, if they were to pay their agents more their turn over wouldn't be so high.
Agent (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – May 8, 2017
I was with the company for a very short time and I enjoyed it all. The training was awsome and the upper management is great. This is not the place for introverts. You get out what you put in. Lots of contests and prizes to be won. BIG on recognition.
Love this job when youre able to get in front of the business owner. The hardest part of this is getting into the businesses and then holding on to the business. Lots of prospecting, cold calling and determination needed for the long haul.
