    I have been working at Primerica full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Have been both corporate and a Business owner in the past, this is the SINGLE best personal development program with a high back-end compensation package I have ever seen. If you - work hard - follow their proven steps - honestly put families first they will reward you.

    Cons

    Here is the rub for most people: This is NOT a job! Its an opportunity to provide for yourself and your family! And some people are just not disciplined in their own lives to take advantage of this type of opportunity. You cannot coast or be a wallflower. (Sorry, if you want a do-nothing, hourly wage job, this is not for you. They do not pay people who do not excel at their craft. But then again, who wants...

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Primerica part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Company pays licenses, trains you for free, let’s you start right away after licensed, have no neopatism clause(allows you to work with anyone including family), has support to help you finish business and amazing software, pays agents quickly and honest about payment structure and partners with trustworthy companies. Without financial equity allows you to become an owner. Best business ever!!!

    Cons

    Some agents don’t understand it can be a great business opportunity and think they can work this like a job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!!! Love this company!! Keep the good reimbursement coming!!!

    I have been working at Primerica full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Compensation, flexibility, excellent home office support, paid licenses (insurance and investments), strong history of success within the industry

    Cons

    You have to have a GREAT work ethic and have enough motivation to complete the licensing process. All of the tools are in place for people to win but a lot of people do not have the drive necessary to be successful

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    -Backed by a great support team and a platform of companies that want to help middle class Americans improve their current situation. -Compensation is like no other firm -They have heart for the people in the company as well as their clients

    Cons

    -You get paid for the effort you put in. If you don't work Primerica won't work, if you don't get licensed you wont get paid! Simple as that

    I have been working at Primerica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Unlimited Growth Self development workshop Career opportunity Part time income opportunity Business/ Ownership opportunity Financial education PRIMERICA BRINGS WALL STREET TO MAIN STREET

    Cons

    NONE ! Still thinking, none. Just work. Businesses make income purely off commission.

    Advice to Management

    What are people saying??? We don’t con people of $124 — The company makes you responsible for a background check and course, while $124 Is still a JOKE! Primerica should charge more. To get started in your own business and get sponsored for license that cost anywhere from $2,000-$4,000! Most people don’t fully understand what we do and don’t understand business, but it’s okay. So happy I was able to help my friends and...

      people think its a pyramid scheme. you can not be a CONVICTED felon, this company provides ELEVATION. the 125 start up fee does NOT go to the person who recruited you. you have to be FINGER PRINTED, its on the FORBES list. IF IT WAS a scam, im pretty sure theyll let ANYONE join, im also pretty sure BBB would say so, also pretty sure FORBES list does all their research before they make them a HEADLINING topic. like...
