I have been working at Primerica part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Become licensed as a life insurance sales agent, can get investments license. If you are good at sales there is potential to make money.

Cons

Sneaky practices. Recruit people through weekly meetings that make the job seem really easy to make a ton of money. Ask you to call your close friends and family and not tell them anything about what you are selling but just that its something great and they need to sit down with your manager and he will explain everything They say its not a multi level marketing structure but it is. Money you make is all about the number of sales you can make and the number of people under you who you have recruited and the sales you make.

Advice to Management

Should make it clear what the job actually is and what skills are actually required and give people the proper training. You just recruit anybody regardless of there background or skills because in the end you know you can just use their connections for possible sales leads.

    I have been working at Primerica as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great resources and competitive products to help families in almost any situation. Corporate assistance is very available. The technology available to the field staff is excellent. My office has great training on personal development. If you work at all, the $99 fee is easily earned.

    Cons

    Training is different between offices. The company has a significant amount of criticism online. It is a difficult business, but all insurance is at first, so I think much of the online criticism is not fair. Mutual fund products do not pay well.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the RVP's have so much free reign. Try to implement more consistency across the company.

    I have been working at Primerica as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free education in starting, building, and maintaining a business. Free education on how to "sell" without strong arming or using deceptive tactics. Positive attitudes from team mates, supportive environment where people actually want you to succeed. Accessability to million dollar business owners who treat you like a valued member not a lower life form. Some of the best services for middle income families to help them stop merely survivng and learn to thrive.

    Cons

    Training is not consistant across the board. If your RVP doesn't work with you find a mentor that will before quitting.

    Advice to Management

    Too much Rah rah rah enthusiasm comes across fake and gives a solid company with solid values a bad impression to new people. Tone it down ~ the services and business model speak for themselves the hype is not needed.
