    I have been working at Primerica full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Everyone must understand it’s an opportunity what you do with the opportunity is up to you. Try it put in the work and if after you’ve tried and you didn’t succeed it’s ok. Yet along the way you’ve given the people who either were your clients or fellow Opportunist a look at how you can help others either by taking advantage of the opportunity to make some money or being able to protect a family in case of an untimely lost. It doesn’t become real until you have delivered a death claim that helps a family because of an untimely lost. Every opportunity is what you make of it. I have a great VP who genuinely cares about everyone who walks thru his office. Which helps tremendously to encourage to see how you can benefit others.

    Cons

    Only con would be is if you are presented with this opportunity and you didn’t give yourself a chance to try and see if it works for you, is the only con. Hope your VP is as great as mine, very important for moral!

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the oppprtunity.

    I worked at Primerica part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learning basic sales skills, getting licensed opens doors

    Cons

    Office held no meetings, when asked what to do was told by upline it's all on the web platform. When talking to people everyone has tried it already so too saturated
      Overpriced term products
    They dont pay renewals
    They now sell annuities like.any other insurance company

    Advice to Management

    Lower the price of term insurance , watching art Williams' videos he talks about when they first started they were the cheapest and if they weren't to not do business with them, primerica is not cheapest .
      Pay renewals on insurance . Why would I go through all the crap to sell life insurance and only get paid one time
      Have training at the recruiting office or shut it down. limit number of agents recruited per year sonopprtunity is better for those who come in. dont sell alarm systems, dont use the referall system for the auto and home owners , allow people buying homes to get auto and homeowners ( not just replacing policies )
    Set higher standards for agents , advertise for agents
    Sell silver and gold 10% of ones portfolio a d 90% mutual funds ( stock market can be rigged downward too )
      Only allow 1,000,000 dollar earners to recruit . Then produce regional vice presidents and only allow them to open their own office when they are earning 250,000+ so you sont have offices opening and shutting down all the time
      Then the 1,000,000 earner trains and recruits and lots them under the 250,000 earners to build them up.

    Pros

    Listen, the only people that have bad reviews for Primerica, is the people who were lazy, and didn’t make any money. You don’t get paid to show up like a 9-5, you get paid when you actually do the work. This isn’t a place for the weak. This isn’t a place if you’re looking to ‘get rich quick’. This is a place for people who are tired of clocking in, and not getting paid what they’re worth. This is for people who actually want to become a boss, and live by their own rules. If that’s not the kind of person you are, don’t join. Simple as that. If you like your 9-5, making under $40k a year, stay there. Primerica changes lives, but only if you’re willing, and really want a better life.

    Cons

    Not every office is the same, they’re are ones that are ran great, and some that aren’t. That’s life. If you happen to end up at a ‘bad’ office, take measures into your own hands, and train yourself. The internet is free, remember. Don’t blame anyone else for your own failure. You’re an adult, act like it.

    Advice to Management

    Train your people, listen to your people, help your people. Don’t annoy your people, but never make them feel like they’re alone if they’re in need.

    Pros

    I have learned every little detail of this company, and the system is perfect. The system provides everything you need to be successful, and if you don't reach success it will probably be due to yourself or if you receive a lack of leadership. There is absolutely no risk involved in trying it out.

    Cons

    Difficult, especially if you don't receive good leadership
