    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Primerica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is nothing good about this company.

    Cons

    SCAM!! As an "employee" you are NEVER to pay money to obtain a "paying" position in ANY company. *Ask for upfront costs for your being hired, $299 *Entire training teaches you how to build and enact a pyramid scheme. *NEVER allowed to ask rational and competent questions, you are penalized for asking any question that might challenge their schemes. *Mandatory "Saturday School" where you are encouraged with false promises to Sell, Sell, Sell. *NO regular pay, ALL COMMISSION BASED, but they don't tell you this until AFTER you give them a $300 investment that you NEVER get back *Teaches you how to scam the elderly, uninformed, and even the poor put of money *Constantly remind employees that "We are in the business to make money, so try to sign up "falt" signers." *Supervisors are vile, scammers that are so used to treating everyone like crap that they simply don't care about anything.
