    It all depends on your RVP. When you become part of a strong group, Primerica is a place where you can grow and help families live better, more financially informed and financially fee lives

    Cons

    This is a great place to start when you are young and can live lean. It is a tough place to start if you are mid-career or have a family to support

    I worked at Primerica (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    In my experience, this company has the best part-time income producing opportunity I've ever seen. You get paid every time you submit business. It's like having a cash cow. The residuals were amazing as well. The real product is the opportunity to make significant income through building a salesforce, I found that it was easier to sell the products. I spoke to thousands of people over my 11 year career with the firm, most people just talk big and are not willing to do the work to live their dreams. All the products are high quality, so sell them and recruit as you go along making money from selling.

    Cons

    Your success is directly tied into the office you get recruited into, so choose wisely. 100% commission based, there is no salary which means that there is no cap on your income. Some Vice-Presidents who run these offices will try and convince you to work full-time, I strongly advise against this unless you are comfortable with no salary. Some months will be great and some won't, so you will need supplemental income until you have the system mastered.

    I have been working at Primerica

    Pros

    It's a great opportunity for success in the long run. It's like any business you want to start. You need to aquire the experience first. Then you can go all out. Success depends on you and the person who's training you. If you get good training you deliver good results.

    Cons

    People make false statements about primerica, and make it harder for us to help people. Take a look at what you're doing now. Tha last five year of your life, and think about your next five. If you keep doing what you're doing, are you going to be happy with your job five year from now.?? If not. Then start your own business. It doesn't have to be with primerica, but start something. At primerica we just make it easier to start your own business. That's all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If someones own up line can't help, then allow a different person to help. Share the responsibility of training others. Even if you don't make your half sale. Your team can learn from others and will only make you stronger.

    Pros

    Only corporate job I have had that actually feels like everyone is a family. The company takes care of us and treats us like valuable employees and not just a number. No wonder they're so many people who have been working here for so long. Would recommend to anyone looking to have a meaningful career and not just be another number to a company's bottom line.

    Cons

    Really hard to get a job at this company. Turnover is very low and you almost need to know someone who knows someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keeping on
