Very Easy Interview
I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Primerica in May 2013.
Interview Details – Was told during phone interview that they were interested in me "NOT SELLING" but rather to assist the regional vice president to establish 30 offices in he next two years. I was intrigued and thought the job sounded right up my alley. Once I got to the interview it was the proverbial "bait and switch" I was told the job was strictly a commission based position where I was only employable IF I opened my own office.
Interview Question – No unexpected questions just a poor interview in terms of what was discussed and then what was discussed at interview Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Did not want to deal with company that was not forthright in the job description and expectations.

Interview Details – Was very straight foreward. Didnt waste much time getting to the standard presentation process. This job is what you make of it. They wont hire criminals or anyone with a felony background. Just show you desire to succeed and you will be welcomed.
Negotiation Details – was none, basically are self employed with training
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Primerica in May 2013.
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

Interview Details – Pyramid Structure. Interview begins with a phone call in which a yes man reads your resume and says they do exactly what your resume speaks to without telling you what the job is. Tons of flattery, no substance. In the interview, you will is with a "VP" (basically everyone who survives in the company becomes a VP - there are dozens in every metro-area). The "VP" will go on about how great the company is and drop Warren Buffets name about 10-20 times because he supposedly thought the company was the best investment ever. Consequently, as company where a bunch of people go out and sell financial products which anyone can get a re-seller agreement for, without the risk of actually paying a salary to those doing the legwork, and reaping the rewards of those sales made by anyone who tries and fails, is a profitable business model....as is Amway, Scientology, and Televangelism. I was told that I reminded the VP of one of their top earners. (I blushed)
Interview Question – When I told them I knew there was no salary and asked what the commission structure was, I watched them squirm and tell me they couldn't tell me that. Also, when I asked them how many VPs there were in West Michigan and they said like 28 or something. (not laughing was a challenge). Also, when I asked them what would stop me from taking their licensing, selling a bunch of financial products and then going over to a place like Merril Lynch and getting a job that pays....that took them off guard. Did you mean difficult questions they asked me? There were none. Cults don't make it difficult for you to join, that would defeat the purpose. View Answer
Reason for Declining – I wanted to get paid for my work. Anyone can go convince other people to sell widgets for them and promise them a VP title and a licence to screw people if they continue to work for free for a year or so. Real entrepreneurship involves taking the risk of paying people in the understanding that your business model will effectively produce a profit.

Interview Details –
I was cold-called by a recruiter shortly after updating my Information on Monster.com. She claimed to have a position open that fit my needs and invited me to come to an interview. When I arrived at the interview, I was lead to a classroom with about fifty other people in it. My first indication that something was wrong was the fact that I was the only one in the room wearing a suit aside from the yes-man they had running the show. The guy sitting next to me was in a Ravens Jersey. It looked like they were just bringing people in off the street.
They showed us a video that made insultingly unrealistic promises about the advantages of working for Primerica and then handed out employment packages. When Yes-man finished the video he asked if there were any questions. I asked him to clarify that it was a multilevel marketing organization. He wouldn't give a straight answer. When I used the term "pyramid scheme" he became defensive and agitated. I then asked about the training fee, and why it was necessary. He suggested that I leave if I wasn't comfortable. I did, but made a big enough scene that about a dozen others followed me out.
Interview Question – There were no questions asked. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Primerica is a pyramid scheme, plain and simple. I'm not a sucker. The last straw was when they asked me to pony up $150 for training and recruiting costs. I walked out.

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!

Interview Details – They will call you again and again for their orientation or overview. Actually it is a presentation rather than a interview. They will change the name of a financial rule you are familiar with, and then demonstrate their priority and professionalism because you "do not know" the rule. However, their presentation skills are really good, and completely show you what a good sales man should have.
Interview Question – No questions asked. Perhaps the most essential question you should think about is whether you are suitable to be a salesman. Answer Question
