    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Primerica in July 2009.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an agent or representative who found my resume on-line. He said he wanted to meet with me because his company- PFS (Primerica Financial Services)- was looking to add another 30 representatives in this area.

    I arrived in the office and was asked to fill out an application form. Before I was finished a representative came in and tookover filling out my form. She asked about my salary requirements, whether or not my previous job allowed for advancement, and what I was looking for in next employer. She said it was important that I be interested in being my own boss.

    Next, the gentleman whom first contacted me came in to finish the interview. He was an agent with 5 months of experience. He failed to bring his copy of my resume and knew next to nothing about my background. He did not ask for a copy of my resume. He went right into describing the business model. He said that as a business owner I would be responsible for paying my own benefits. He then asked if I would be interested in coming back the next day for a presentation describing the business. I had a scheduling conflict and declined. He then asked for a second interview so that we could discuss how the business and compensation works. Again, I declined.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Primerica (Gary, IN).

    Interview

    The process was just an introductory video. My interviewer forgot that I was coming in that day and I had to wait an hour for him to show up. I thought that individual was sketchy. But I do not hold that viewpoint of the company as a whole. I may apply again at a different office.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Primerica (Saint Louis, MO) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Sitting in the waiting room on these seemingly fly-by-night offices, I noticed they had a rather odd fascination with Mel Gibson movie posters. Next to the poster of the Patriot was a real musket. The interview was done buy a man who's job it seems was just telling me how much money I could make. He asked me certain questions about how much money I would like to be making, and I assume, if I went back for the second interview he would tell me that I could achieve all of that with Primerica. It is a multi-level marketing scheme that nobody should waste their time with.

    Interview Questions

    • If money was no option, what would you buy?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    It is a multi-level marketing scheme in sheep's clothing.
