    I had a second round interview for an entry-level Investment Analyst position with OMG exactly 2 weeks ago. Today I got a call from a woman with Primerica (financial services) saying she was given my info & that they were interested in me. We had a mini chat & we set up a longer one for tomorrow. Do you think OMG gave my info out instead of a direct no? Is it a good sign she reached out to me so fast? Is she a headhunter or just a recruiter? Sorry for the all the Qs, I'm just excited lmao

      Your results are a direct relationship to your effort (work smart not hard)

      Pros

      You can work part-time and transition to full-time. They paid for $5,000 worth of licenses (214, SIE, S6, S63, S65, S26) for a $99 registration fee plus a $25 monthly subscription which includes a fully fleshed CRM and quoting tools for both Insurance and Investments. It seems too good to be true and that can be a problem if the new agent doesn't appreciate what they are getting and they don't take advantage of it.

      Cons

      You need to let go of the corporate mentality and treat this as your own business or it won't work. You gotta be willing to let go of the notion you get paid just to do tasks, this is a people's business. You need to learn how to lead people, not by fear or pressure but by example and persuation. You need to keep laser focus and constantly remind the new agents their goal is to get field train and licensed within a month or they don't make money, get discouraged and leave. Whoever complains in here is because they didn't adapt or were not willing to do the work it takes to learn the craft and get results. This is a commission based work that requires you learn how to sell, and then teach others how to sell so you can earn overrides on top of the commisions for your own sales. But if you build a team of enough trained produces you can make a decent living with $50K to $200K a year depending on the size of your team and your book of business.
