Financial Advisor Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Primerica.

Interview

Looking back it was a textbook example of emotional manipulation. I knew the RVP previously but didn't know what she did. She spent a lot of time talking about how special she thought I was, and that I had a great network to work within. Assured me several times that it wasn't a pyramid scheme. I'll admit, I bit. For a few months I was all in. Until I started realizing that she had very little interest in me actually succeeding and was only interested in getting close to all of my connections. I walked away and never looked back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Primerica (Aurora, CO) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Went in for a group interview which I wasn't informed about. It seems like a pyramid scheme. I did not want to work for an insurance company anyway. They tried to really get me in there by asking for my driver's license and credit card. I have never went to an interview where I PAID someone. I think that it should have been deducted out of your first paycheck but they try to say that they'll be spending over $900 on you for training so you should spend the $124. I did not like this and since it didn't sound like a guarantee I certainly was not interested!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Primerica (Boca Raton, FL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was called by the head of the branch at Congress telling me that he saw my resume online and believed i am a good fit and invited me to come in to discuss my options with him. We agreed on a time and date, when i got there i was told to fill out a pre screen interview form then directed to a conference room with others waiting. It turns out to be a presentation on the company and how you can be a part of it by "owning you own business". This screams multi level marketing from all angles and when i questioned it i was told its different. It was not, you are 100% responsible for your earning and benefits. Not for me, i can think of other business to start on my own than to join this one with recurring monthly fee. I wasn't interested and others walked away too.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Primerica (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Deceiving. I was asked to come for a job about Financial Advisor, but this was just about selling Life insurance and recruit others for Multilevel Marketing. They should be more honest

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Primerica (Dallas, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter. Met at their offices with a Financial Advisor. Was asked several easy questions about my resume, as well as my goals for the future. Given a brief spiel about the company and offered a job on the spot. I ultimately turned it down due to 100% commission (was mislead on that by the recruiter)

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Primerica (Saint Cloud, MN) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very professional and very straight forward. After interviewing with several other companies in the financial services industry. I knew Primerica was unlike any other company in the financial services industry hence why they are the largest financial services organization in North America. I knew what they were doing was 100% right as they really just are teaching families and individuals basic principles and strategies like the rule of 72 which no other company is doing! After the interview concluded, I already knew that I didn't want to work for any other company!

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Primerica (West Chester, OH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    First they give a presentation to all potential interviewees. Afterwards, they ask for referrals for whom ask to call to come in. Then they do a brief interview, with very superficial questions. They have you come in another day for a second interview, but really again, it's more informational and less an actual interview. They have two people speak with you.

    Reasons for Declining

    It's not a pyramid scheme, but it feels like one. I would avoid at all costs.
