What are the advantages/disadvantages of working as a DSC for Aflac?

Aflac does not hold you captive. You are able to work for other insurance companies while doing Aflac at the same time, I'm currently trying to get a job with Liberty Mutual to support my Aflac career.

Sounds like your AFLAC "career" is lacking something..

I have a friend that works with AFLAC and she has done very well. So when I was offered an opportunity to work with Bankers Life she, of course, mentioned how I should look into AFLAC instead. I have done some research, read all of these posts, did some comparisons (although the companies are quite different in size, target group and overall products). The theme I am seeing that is steering me towards Bankers is the size of AFLAC. Some may take that as a positive but for a sales person it is difficult enough to sell in a marker while competing with agents from other companies, it seems to me that working with AFLAC would add the additional stress of having to compete with agents in you own region or even your own office. I am going to my second interview tomorrow with Bankers (with a few questions now thank to all of you in this forum) and one plus, I feel, they have is a "Lead Pool" that they use. They give their agents lead to minimize cold calling.



Now, I told my friend this from AFLAC and they explained that the "Lead Pool", in their opinion, is not necessarily someone who is interested it is just someone that recently turned 65. If this is the case, then indeed it would be cold calling...hence this is one of my main questions.



I was very impressed with the first interview at Bankers, I was involved in sales for the past 18 years, understand and am inviting the work ethics of insurance, have a part time job and actually look forward to all of the "No's" and (well I cant type here what some people actually say) as it really just inspires me to sell myself better to the next client.



With all of this being said....is there anyone out there that could give me a comparison between working for Bankers Life vs. AFLAC?? I am in the Raleigh/Durham area now.



Thank you to All



JA

You cannot really compare Bankers to AFLAC -- they operate in completely different markets. Both expect you to cold call. You just have to decide whether you want to learn to market life insurance and LTC (Bankers) or Supplemental Benefits (AFLAC). Choose one and give it a try, if it's not for you, give the other company a shot. It might not be for you either.

I'm currently working full time and will sell Aflac on a part time basis. I'm not in a position to quit my full time job but this sounds like a good opportunity. Is it possible to do this part time?

Not the best way, but possible.
