    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Primerica in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    After giving out my resume on the job fair, I received a call from the local VP of Primerica making an interview appointment with me. I went to the office the next day, dressed up, and it was just a two-floor house. The interviewer and her assistant received me downstairs. The whole process was about an hour, and the questions are all focused on my educational background and school stuff. At last, came the critical part, they asked me to attend some training classes and pay $100 ahead. Then I turned them down..

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Primerica in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went to a career day at my university and a man from Primerica lifted a copy of my résumé out of my folder without me initially realizing it. He then called me the next day twice after I explicitly asked him not to call back the first time. After that, I went to work at the restaurant where I was employed at the time (I have since secured actual employment now that I've graduated) and two representatives from Primerica specifically sat in my section and harangued me all night about the company and then left me only a 10% tip. It was

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Primerica in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I received a call after they saw my resume on monster. He made it seem like he wanted me to work with him in a team leader position.
    When I got to the interview he showed me a presentation and kept telling how they change peoples lives. The interview had nothing to do with me and more about what a great company they were. The position was to be an agent to sell their products not a team leader.

    This is a PYRAMID SCHEME. Multi-level marketing (harrassment). No legitimate company will EVER require you to PAY to start training with them.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Primerica in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I feel like this company was a pyramid scam. When they called me from my resume on career builder they didn’t say their company name. They also had said they have full time positions available and that I would be hiring and training people to sell and that I myself would not be selling. I had a brief phone interview and then they invited me to have a in person interview. The interview was a 2 hour presentation about selling life insurance and stocks. They said no salary all commission and you earn money if you bring others in.

    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.
