    Advisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Primerica (Gary, IN).

    Interview

    The process was just an introductory video. My interviewer forgot that I was coming in that day and I had to wait an hour for him to show up. I thought that individual was sketchy. But I do not hold that viewpoint of the company as a whole. I may apply again at a different office.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Primerica (Tulsa, OK).

    Interview

    I received a message on Facebook from a member of a job search page I am a member of from someone who works for Primerica saying she knew me from my years as a teacher and thought I would be a good match for the company and asked to give my number to her hiring manager. I agreed that she could. Her hiring manager called me and set up an interview. I did some research on the company and there are several people on different websites who said this was a multilevel marketing scheme and listed all the reason why not to work there. I found it odd that they wanted to interview me having never seen a resume or knowing anything about me. The more I researched the more I found out that made me not want to work there. So I politely responded to the woman I had spoke with on the phone and told her I was not interested. She started texting me wanting to know why I did not want to interview and said "what? Do you not like making money or helping people?" I was quite shocked. When I told her about the things I had read and directed her to the websites where I had read the information she became even angrier and started and told me "if you look for negative, all you will find is negative. Our company has been around for 36 years so we cannot be a scam. Etc" She went on for several long text messages becoming quite belligerent. The way she was acting proved to me the reviews were correct. They make money for every person they get to work there so that explains why she was so angry. if the company was actually a good company she would not have gotten so upset and decided to attack me. Most HR managers would simple think "their loss" and cancel the interview. She was extremely unprofessional.

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Primerica.

    Interview

    You pay $99 to join, the money go towards training and licensing. It is the cheapest start-up fee of any financial service industry or auto/home insurance. They just make sure you don't have anything in your background because you will be dealing with peoples private information.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Primerica.

    Interview

    Met at recruiting fair and got called in the next week for a face-to-face interview. Wasn't really an interview, more just the representative selling you on why you should be an insurance sales rep for the company. They seemed like they were willing to accept anyone and increase their number of agents. No behavioral questions, or very many questions about yourself.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Primerica.

    Interview

    They have you fill out a personality questionnaire and ask pretty standard sales job questions. The right answers are that you're a Type A competitive and independent person. They're looking for a person that will go out and motivate themselves to make sales based off of commissions.

    Reasons for Declining

    I don't want to do sales.

    interviewed at Primerica in November 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was very professional and the process was not difficult in any manner. They explained how they educate their clients and have that interest in mind. They presented a presentation and showed how they accomplish the goal of enriching their clients wealth with a few slight adjustments to how spend upon insurance payments and add to their savings. I was pleased by them as they are not judgmental but strictly professional.
