    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Primerica (Brick, NJ) in November 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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.

    There was no negotiation. At the time, Primerica was still an arm of Citigroup, and all salaries were slotted and frozen.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Primerica (Willowbrook, IL) in June 2013.

    Interview

    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

    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.

    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.
