    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring and promoting friends and family...this ain’t a Verizon plan! Others are talented so look at your teams and build them up! Also bad managers running around like they are head of the bull arena is terrible....come down to earth.

    I worked at Aflac full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You have a whole lot of freedom. You determine your own hours and can take off work whenever you want.

    Cons

    It is straight commission. The work is extremely hard. Door to door sales is not meant for everyone. A lot of companies already have Aflac or they are not interested at all. They promise young kids when they come in that if they “work hard and increase activity” that they could make six figures in a year. That is dead wrong. The associates only make up to 40k if they’re very lucky. Everyone else is in the 20k region....

    Advice to Management

    Aflac has a good product. If they offered at least a base salary(doesn’t have to be a lot) then they’re turnover wouldn’t be so bad.
