    Pros

    The benefits are A1. You feel really great about being a apart of the company, I feel spoiled to work at Aflac, due to the appreciation, bonuses, and merit based raise that is received each year. Its a true blessing to work with the company.

    Cons

    Working in the call center can make or break you. If its not the customers stressing you out, its the quality or quantity requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on what your reps do for the customer than the metrics, especially for promotion.

    Pros

    Aflac is more than a job, it a career that gives you the chance to create your own worth based on your efforts. We get to change the financial aspect of a famiy's life for the better if they are faced with that unexpected health event. I love what I get to do everyday.

    Cons

    The only con is that I wished I would have started this career a lot sooner.

    Advice to Management

    Great coaching and training that has given me the change to reach my goals and career aspirations.

    I have been working at Aflac

    Pros

    I had a lot of one on one training with a regional manager. I also learned how to train employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work could be somewhat boring or tedious. I also didn't get the amount of hours I hoped for

    Pros

    formal & extensive training, professional work environment, doing "real" sales work (not admin work), gain a lot of first-hand sales experience

    Cons

    cold-calling small business owners, canvassing sketchy small business in run-down parts of the city, can be difficult to finish a sales cycle and close the deal in the span of a 3-month internship, 100% commission structure

    Advice to Management

    Managment at AFLAC was incredible. They were very engaged and offered extensive coaching and advice; for me, it was the nature of the sales that I did not enjoy. The company itself is admirable, ethical, professional, and impressive.
