Trainer Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Primerica.
Interview Details – The interview was incredibly long - almost 2hours. it is a lot of explaining what they doas a company before you get to talk much. All the basic questions are asked. Some are concrete knowledge questions, and some are philosophical to see if you are a "cultural fit" for the company.

Senior Representative Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and interviewed at Primerica.
Interview Details – The interview was a very great experience! I met a lot of nice people who were very open and friendly. Nothing about the interview process was hidden or held back. I learned a lot about finances that I never knew before. It was very laid back, nothing was done to try to trick me or twist my arm into doing anything. Wasn't a typical interview where the interviewer tries to ask questions to stump you or make you think harder then needed. Everything was well planned and very down to earth and personal. I wish I found this company sooner!

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Primerica in September 2012.
Interview Details – The interview was a pleasant experience overall, I wasn't subjected to the "lets see how many time's we can stump this person" game. I could tell there was an effort made to see if I would fit in with the rest of the team as well. Going through the HR process was fairly simple and straightforward as well.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Primerica in October 2010.
Interview Details – I was interviewed to fill a Financial Representative position with Primerica. I did a preliminary interview and then met with a Vice President as my second interview. It was very professional and clear as to the position and work required. I was hesitant because I was young but I was shown the successful young people in the company and knew that I was in the right place
Interview Question – What are your goals and dreams? ( I had never been asked that on an interview) Answer Question
Negotiation Details – It took some time to figure out what would work with my full time job because I was starting with Primerica part time. Luckily, I was able to start Primerica with minimal hours per week so I would not overload myself in the beginning.
Financial Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Primerica in February 2011.
Interview Details – I submitted my resume and cover letter for the position and received a call to schedule an interview within 1 week. I arrived @ the HR office and had to complete an application. I first spoke to the HR rep about the company and the position, she was very friendly while giving an overview of the company and her experience working there. I then went over to another building to be interviewed by the hiring manager and her boss. I was asked the typical interview questions about my experience and working habits. The job was very similar to the job I was currently performing so I felt confident that I was a good fit. The interview environment was laid back and comfortable.
Interview Question – I was asked to describe a situation where I faced difficulty and how I went about resolving. Answer Question
Training and Customer Service Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Primerica in January 2011.
Interview Details – The interview was pleasant but not at all for the job advertised. The descriptions of the company were non-committal and more selling the company and it's "reputation" than an actual job description -- or even interviewing me for that matter.
I decided not to pursue it further after returning home and researching it online and finding out it was an MLM (not my cup of tea).
Interview Question – They asked for references before even speaking with me. It felt odd. View Answer
