    Reinsurance Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Primerica (Duluth, GA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Three weeks after I applied for the position I was asked to interview the next day. I sat down with HR, someone from the department and their manager. Initially the questions, process and structure were fairly standard. When I met with the final manager I had a difficult time assessing the situation. I wasn't quite clear as to what direction she was going. She talked quite a bit considering it was an interview and her questions were vague. It felt a little like an interrogation that I just wanted to get out of after a while. I was also given a blanket response about timeline. The same day I was sent an email instructing me to contact references in preparation. After waiting the quoted two weeks I called HR, who didn't answer or return my call. The next day I was sent a generic email stating the position was filled. Ultimately, I'm glad that I didn't get this position. A company this size should be able to send out generic emails when the position is filled not just after contact is made to inquire. This was particularly irritating because I have good relationships with my references. Id like to let them know that another candidate was chosen and they will not be contacted.

    Training Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Primerica (Alpharetta, GA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    It was a joke!!! Someone called and said he was looking for someone to help him hire and train people for the new offices he was planning to open.

    he asked me if I could go that same day (note: he called at 1:30pm). I dropped what I was doing to go. I arrived earlier than expected and was told he would see me in 20 minutes. I waited almost 1 hour. When one woman came to the reception to get the person she would be talking to and asked me if I was X. I said yes and she asked me to follow her. She said she was the wife of the man that called me and would be talking to the 2 of us at the same time. I thought it was strange.

    Well, the recruiting and hiring is BS. It's a pyramid scheme. You recruit and get people under you to sell whatever their products are.
    I did not stay any longer than 10 minutes into the interview. In that short amount of time she started telling us how they met, and got married and started their business, then she had to step out to go "get another person" she had to talk to. I could not believe how disrespectful, besides they lied to what they were looking for.

    Office Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Anaheim, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I received a call from a Primerica recruiter for job placement. During the conversation they advised they would be interested in meeting with me for an office Manager job. They also referred me to the companies website for more information. I scheduled the appointment. The recruiter asked me to bring a list of my references to the meeting.
    I located no Office Manager posting on the company's site. I called the recruiter for a copy of the job posting, receiving no return call.
    I also saw reviews on Glassdoor of issues where interviewers were interested in candidates reference lists for recruiting purposes.
    Too many red flags and no information on a supposed Manager position.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aurora, CO

    Negative Experience
    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 in-person. I interviewed at Primerica (Killeen, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I didn't get a good feeling from the moment I met the interviewer. Very arrogant person who aid I could easily make $80k part time. I didn't like how he came off as just being concerned with referrals rather than actually helping Families.

    Opportunity Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Primerica in April 2017.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from someone who found my resume on a job search website describing a great opportunity with a great company working in financial advising for the middle class. I'd already interviewed with Banker's and realized this line of work isn't for me but figured I'd go for an interview and see if this company did anything special. I received another job offer and decided to cancel my interview but I was never given a phone number or email address to contact.
    I received another phone call from the same person, who still didn't identify the company insisting that I still come in for an interview. I requested a morning appointment but was only offered noon (I understand why now after reading other reviews). I agreed to come in.
    As I was driving to the interview I was increasingly bothered by the fact that I didn't know what the company was and why would a recruiter insist on interviewing someone who didn't show for a scheduled interview. I Google searched the recruiters name and found out it was Primerica. I turned around immediately and went back home. I've been recruited for Primerica in the past and I know it's not for me.
    I received another call asking to reschedule followed by several texts that got increasingly unprofessional as I insisted that I've done my research on Primerica and I'm certain that this isn't the opportunity I'm looking for.
