      Former Contractor, less than 1 year

      Great Experience, Terrible Contract Terms

      Pros

      My short experience was mostly good due to friendly coordinator. Lots of assistance to get 215. Lots of opportunity to learn about the insurance industry. You could probably turn this into a decent career, but ONLY if you'd like to recruit other contractors under you and become a District or Regional coordinator.

      Cons

      100% commission paid The biggest incentive to work in this independent contractor position is the opportunity to earn recurring commissions off of the accounts that you signed up for Aflac. Potential contractors should realize that their Coordinator can end their contract at any time and take their recurring commissions. Coordinators can leverage this to make a contractor prospect and cold call even if the contractor is content with their current recurring commissions. You are also competing with all other contractors in your city who your coordinator is trying to help because he or she makes money off both of you. Other contractors in your office will steal your leads. You are also competing with Aflac's corporate office who will sell directly to your potential clients.

      Pros

      Great Networking opportunities, Lots of hands on corporate experience, sales experience, meaningful projects for interns.

      Cons

      100% Commission pay meaning if you don't make a sale you don't get paid. It's incredibly frustrating to work so hard and not get paid anything.

      Entrepreneurial, for better or worse

      Pros

      - Hands on training through others in the office - When they say "unlimited salary potential" it means you get as much as you bring. Can be great salary + passive income if you bring a lot of clients

      Cons

      - 100% commission - Must be very self-motivated to essentially start your "business" from scratch. You're basically given a product to sell, and it's up to you to get the clients

      Pros

      Met a lot of great people, made new connections, and learned more about the insurance field.

      Cons

      100% commission which is rough if you have a slow sales period, spent a lot of nights preparing routes and where I'd cold call the next day so the work-life balance can become difficult
