    Pros

    The people are great and very supportive. I have received 5 star training that has jump started my career with Aflac and I can only hope to grow with the company. I was a little nervous about taking a commission position only, however, I feel that it was the best decision I could have made. I have the freedom to make what I am worth and the flexibility to still me Mom to my 3 kids.

    Cons

    A lot to learn when going through the pre-licensing process, but as soon as I passed the exam and started training, everything really came together.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of different management styles, and I have noticed that some need to have more patience and keep in mind we are new to the company and some of us new to the insurance industry. I have been lucky to have been placed with a young DSC and he is very excited for my flourishing career which helps to keep me motivated.

    Pros

    I truly believe the opportunity to make a living is there.

    Cons

    If your regional manager and district sales coordinator insist upon you contacting your friends and family, the 'roadblocks' are set up for you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop telling 'untruths' about how you will get your business started - cold-calling, period!

    Pros

    for the most part you are free to set your own hours

    Cons

    Two million agents were there before you and business owners don't want to talk to you when another agent was there five minutes before you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop flooding the market with agents. Hire a telemarketer for pre-set appointments.

    Pros

    You make your own hours.
    Unlimited income.
    Must have initial connections to succeed.
    No drug test.
    Owning own business.

    Cons

    Be prepared to pay taxes on all income earned when tax season comes around.
    High out-of-pocket expenses

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management would be to provide some initial accounts to work off of. Instead one must cold call everyone they know hoping to get a bite.

    Too many agents quacking in the same area - at the end you realize you are paying to work. (Your hear thing like: "-You are the third Aflac agent this week!" A boring situation...

    Advice to Management

    Don't start with any company that pay nothing for your time.
