    The company really does pay for your schooling to obtain your life insurance license.

    Cons

    Kind of a pyramid scheme

    Pros

    Motivated, family environment. Good upbeat atmosphere and very competitive. Meet a great group of people that will rally and ultimately help you be successful.

    Cons

    Base pay, travel, calls. Travel does wear and tear on your car, no company cars. Advancement is difficult especially at the entry level position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    A 15 percent raise in one month that could have been done in a day is a great thing.

    Cons

    If you quit you will never be successful. The only con is if you create one

    Pros

    Always deliver more than promised. They are a always looking for ways to increase our compensation and at the same time lower expense to the client.

    Cons

    People misunderstand the company. The biggest challenge I have had is overcoming the ignorance of those who haven't taken the time to find out the truth about the company/opportunity.

    Pros

    Earned more for many years than I ever could have at a regular job, with no degree. Freedom of time, I worked around my families schedule. Positive, focused environment.

    Cons

    Too many people hype this legitimate, commission based opportunity and it's sets up unreasonable expectations. It is fully commission based and some don't like that.

    Pros

    This is a company that continues to do what's right for EVERY customer, and builds a business, to truly build family positions, that challenges and compensates greatly achieved and competitive superstars...a lot like other people only wish they were achieving.

    Cons

    Taking this company seriously is the key to great compensation. Primerica is the company that you receive what you have planned, no exceptions what so ever in any way shape or form.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you plan on building your life, you have to be willing to do the work. There's no need to blame anyone else, if you aren't willing or ready to stand up as your own company owner.

    I worked at Primerica

    Pros

    You learn about the ways insurance companies work.

    Cons

    I hated working for this company. One way i can describe it is by saying they do a lot of talking till things get down to the grain and money starts coming in... yes i know for every job you start from the bottom but the way this company made it seem to me was all they care about was getting their money and people out of you. As long as money is coming in they were so persistant on me setting up meetings with family or friends wouldn't let me breath i didn't understand why if i couldn't set up appointments cuz my friends either already had life insurance or simply didn't wanna sign up, why wouldn't they take me along to they're appointments! Plus i used my parents as an example during my training period and my dad just wanted to see if he qualified point is within the following 2months or less. Primerica autiautomatically chargcharged a fee for life Insurance to his account without notice when my dad never signed them a check or paper agreeing to life insurance with them! Their fraud, watch out for those you use for training and the accounts you give to them. Like i said all they care about is money in their pockets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the fraud problem i don't trust Primerica and wouldn't refer it to friends or family.
