    Wonderful Support Provided

    Nov 16, 2015 - Financial Services Representative in Midland, TX

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Working with Primerica provides an opportunity to build my own business. I am able to build as much or as little as I desire. I plan to build in multiple states and am excited that I am able to do that. They provide excellent support for the training required. Our online access provides access to the education we need for licenses and for product training to help us in the early stages of building. Primerica is always improving, our software, our education, product training, bonuses... it is great to work with a company that cares so much on every level!

    Cons

    This is a commission only opportunity so building it is best done while working a job. It requires dedication and determination to succeed. It also requires vision to see the other side and to be able to help build a bridge to help other people get there. This type of opportunity it not for everyone. Personally I am very excited about it!

    Pros

    Great morals and ethics regarding product choices for clients. Many opportunities to acquire licenses and techniques for closing sales. Great way to supplement income if you are single and don't have family to balance.

    Cons

    Everything is comission based. There is no base salary. Leadership recommended going full time pretty quickly and that added a lot of stress to the process. There is always something you can do and you have to be able to call out your own boundaries to life and work. Leadership generally doesn't do that for you.

    Could potentially be a good source of income.

    Pros

    All training is included, they help you get your state license, and provide training to get your federal investment licenses.

    Cons

    Having to rely on friends and family for your first appointments, then having to rely on references might be a turn off for some or most people unless you are good at influencing and socializing.

    Pros

    Flexibility. No limit on compensation. Company can pay for some training.

    Cons

    Strongly depends on the office that you are in. Some offices just focus on life insurance and that's it. I was at an office where people had a good relationship with each other and were willing to help each other out. It also emphasized getting securities licenses as well as life insurance. Unless you are prepared to reach out to your family, friends and entire network to do business, this may not be the place for you. Also, they emphasize recruiting so that you build a team. It's not for everyone - I think it takes a certain type of personality to succeed given this kind of dynamic. No salary - this is strictly 1099 because it is commission only. That can be a plus for some or a minus for others....

    Pros

    Primerica pays for virtually all of your insurance and securities licenses. You can get licensed in any state in the country and you can recruit an unlimited number of people from anywhere in the country; therefore, there is unlimited earning potential. Promotions are based on production, not nepotism, so you can climb as fast as you want.

    Cons

    If you are not a motivated self-starter, Primerica will be very difficult for you. You need to treat Primerica as your own “business” rather than a job and treat it as such. Many people put in a little effort and expect a paycheck, but in business you only get paid for results.

    Excellent mission and support

    Jun 23, 2021 - Self Employed in San Antonio, TX

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    No limits on what you can make, no limits on how many people you can build with. You can rest assured you are doing what’s right 100% The system is always getting better and more simple to do in order to succeed faster for new reps. Licenses are paid for and bonuses given to new reps.

    Cons

    Some brokers have an outdated system and run things too strict as if it was a job and they are the boss.

    Pros

    Professionals pour into you knowledge and information needed to build an amazing business. Daily training and ongoing help. Free. Licenses are paid for. Kaplan material. Positive and motivating people. Best company I’ve ever been a part of.

    Cons

    Some People who have paid for their background check give up too soon and don’t even work hard enough to get their license this leaving a bad impression and blaming the company instead of their own lack of work ethic.

    Pros

    A great way to get into insurace sales. Compensation plan is good. Unlimited income potential. Licenses are paid for.

    Cons

    No benefits and there can be a lack of focus. Some months sales is the number 1 goal and other months recruiting is. If your up-line is weak at recruiting or sales, you won't get much support in that area and your production and income may reflect that. Term life only, so no residuals on insurance sales.

    Commission based pyramid scheme

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. You're your own boss. Licensing classes. You can get your insurance and financial licenses.

    Cons

    It's a pyramid scheme. They try to make you work on your family and friends to buy life insurance and financial services, even when you're willing to cold open other people. If you hesitate to try to rope in your loved ones, you're "not being coachable".
