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

    Pros

    flexibility of schedule, pay, ability to acquire more licenses almost free.

    Love the company belief system and this company DOES actually look out for its customers. If it is not right for our customer, it is not right for Primerica. If you look at customer reviews (not people who tried the job and failed), you will see that Primerica's customers have reduced their debt, started a life policy at an affordable price, and are on their way to financial independence. However, this is only applies to those customers who stick with the program, which sadly, is not many. The reason is that when most minorities need money the first thing to go is usually their life insurance policy. I am a minority so yeah, I can say that. Most of the people you try to help are the people who need it the most, people that if someone dies, do not have the money to cover the funeral expenses of their loved one. Unfortunately, because the financial culture of the top minority groups does not include a financial plan or life insurance, most end up cancelling their policies which leads to a lot of chargebacks for you.

    But I cannot tell you how many wonderful stories of people who lost a loved one, received more money than they ever would've before Primerica, that is because Primerica's policy are usually $150k and up, and they DO PAY! Also, I can tell you that when I would go on appointments and some of the people actually had Primerica, they all had a story of how this company helped them get out of debt! It was amazing to hear these stories and helped solidify to me how much this company does. So get passed the BS that you see on many websites, if you have enough leads and continue to grow them, it is the most rewarding business you will ever do, just don't run out of leads!!!

    It is an awesome side business but don't quit your day until you have really grown your business to the point where you can no longer do both; any sooner and you will find yourself in financial trouble.
    and people actually follow the Primerica way, they

    Cons

    tough business, you can run out of leads, people will research and assume bad things. To continue to grow in this business you have to recruit people, that's where the real potential is, but YOU DO NOT HAVE TO, this is your business, run it how you want.

    Advice to Management

    My upper line was awesome so keep it up!

    Pros

    Well, they pay for your licensing exams.

    Cons

    They have the most expensive insurance rates.
    The employ inexperienced people who only care about selling you insurance (which is not competitive) and selling you securities with high front load charges.

    Advise, do not deal with them.

    Advice to Management

    Have some decency.

    Pros

    Making an impact on middle income America. Meeting a need in the marketplace vs just a want. Doing something you can be proud of. Building a family business, qualify for ownership and ultimately leave a legacy (a money machine) to your children. Empower & coach individuals in starting their own business. Part time option, paid for licenses, no quotas or time requirements, leadership development, mentorship, virtually no start up capital required, no experience needed to get started, leadership has a financial interest in new reps earning income. Great home office support, fantastic technology and paperless office. Great partnerships with the largest and most respected financial institutions. Educational & multi product approach. No cost to the client for the education and financial needs analysis. Opportunity to help the client earn additional income and help them reach their financial goals.
    All the ways one can get paid. Unlimited income potential, passive income, override income, residual income, stock grants, and bonuses.

    Cons

    You actually have to work. The lazy, unmotivated, un-coachable, credibility-lacking person will not win here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job!
