    Pros

    Positive,Fun People
    Events that the people host to keep feeding you the Kool Aid are pretty clever

    Cons

    Pyramid Scheme
    Only way to make serious money is by recruiting someone into your "business" aka Pyramid. I'm serious. Selling policies make you less money than working at McDonalds, it even states on their website.

    Advice to Management

    You know? You won't be able to fool everyone with your pyramid scheme, if you are not careful.
    Next time someone gets recruited into your "business" don't show off your car.

    I worked at Primerica part-time

    Pros

    N/A Declined offer after second interview.

    Cons

    Was approached at the mall and unfortunately fell for the trap and gave them my number. The calls came in non-stop and at inappropriate hours of the day. I finally answered and agreed to meet for a interview to see what the company had to offer, unfortunately the interview was unprofessional and I had a lack of understanding for what the future of my employment with them would look like. Very scattered explanation with a lot of the interviewer scribbling nonsense onto a piece of paper. I dumbly agreed to a second meeting this time at Starbucks with the couple who recruited me from the mall. There at Starbucks the interviewer began to brag about the current case he had taken on and the amount of money he was going to earn. At the second interview the interviewer convinced me to consider a career with them with the flexible schedule. However, after attempting to gather all my friends and families information/meet with my parents seeing as I was "very young" I declined the offer. That did not stop the constant flow of text messages and calls from both the individual who interviewed me and the recruiters. Included calls and texts from different numbers.
