    Primerica SCAM OR NOT A SCAM and PYRAMID OR NOT A PYRAMID you be the judge

    Pros

    Unbelievable experience and great training system for success of their people and provide lots of personal development with incredible room for growth. Everything you learn while working with this company enables you to apply in every aspect of your life. Hard times don't last but strong people do and only the strong last in this company and only people who sincerely love helping people stay. It is very rewarding working for Primerica and I can't say enough great things about this company. It will take forever if I try. Primerica changes your life and the life of your family. I am not paid to write this. I am a real person and love everything about this company. People who write negative reviews are keeping others from looking into this great opportunity. Those who are looking for reviews should read both the negative and positive ones and than MAKE UP YOUR OWN MINDS. Don't be a follower be someone that is in control of your own decision by thoroughly looking at all views and be well informed. If you are going to do the research DO THE RESEARCH!

    Cons

    Too many negative reviews from people who doesn't have what it takes to do the job. The company is not a SCAM or a PYRAMID SCHEME. They do not make money from recruiting. I am really curious when haters use the word SCAM what they really mean by that. I challenge any haters and can't doers to provide at least ONE example of what Primerica did that you perceived to be a scam. How is Primerica a PYRAMID or a SCAM? It is structured just like the real estate business/industry when it comes to the pay and just like any big companies when it comes to management and business structure. Is the real estate business a scam? NO Do brokers make money of off the real estate agents/ Realtors? YES The pay is a commission split between broker and agents. There are some broker that don't provide training for that money and there are none that will go on a listing or buying appointment to help new agents make money or ensures their success. Real estate agents are on their own. The broker make money without even being on an appointment but yet Primerica is a scam? Get this, real estate brokers make money from their agents rather their agents make money or not on a monthly basis. Brokers charge a monthly fee to hang their license with the firm. So let me ask again which one of the businesses appear more like a scam here? Answer is none. The real estate industry and the way the business structure is very legal and regulated. Primerica has the same structure but the difference is the trainer is with the trainees on each appointment ensuring the success of their new agents in training. The trainers/Leaders deserve every part of the commission because they work hard to make sure their new recruits learn to close by helping families improve upon their situations. All big companies and corporations are pyramid structured yet no one perceive them as a pyramid. No one can see it for what it really is because the corporations constantly pay employees on a certain payroll schedule giving employees the illusion of security but reality is there is NO such thing as security at any job. Employees can be laid off in an instant with no ability to control the situation no matter the how long or loyal or even if the employee is a hard worker. The moment there is a budget cut the first thing companies cut are their employees. Before you judge Primerica you should carefully look into the way the large companies around you are setup and open your eyes. The company you are currently working for is a PYRAMID! Aren't you under somebody that is under somebody that is under somebody??? YES people! Your current employer is a PYRAMID! They control your hours and cap your salaries. Do you really want to work on making someone else rich forever or should you change your life and open your mind and start working on your legacy and take control of your own success? Don't you want to have more time and money for your family instead of choosing to sell your time for money? YOUR CHOICE!!!! Commission: unlimited on growth and the amount of money you can make. You control your time. Hourly/Salary: time and money controlled by someone else with a CAP on how much money you can make and not enough room for growth Haters and can't doers will post negative reviews and assume that all positive reviews are paid for. DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION !!! I will end with this, you can make a SMALL mistake by looking into the opportunity and learn that the opportunity is not for you or make a BIG mistake by listening to haters to have them influence your decision that could be just what you need to make you financially free and live your dreams.

    Great in multiple ways

    Pros

    Great environment for growth (financial and personal) Great individuals Great pay and business opportunity Beware: Joining Primerica to sell insurance and investment products means you must be good at selling/marketing. If you don't know how to how to sell, then you need to learn on your own (and also learn from the people that are good at selling and recruiting). Be coachable and you will make it in this company.

    Cons

    If you are not good at sales/sales management, learn how to sell and manage your sales force so you can grow with Primerica. All the bad reviews saying we are a pyramid scheme are from people that don't know how to sell or manage a sales team.

    Pros

    Primerica provides an opportunity really reach the executive levels other companies don't and probably never will. A home for leaders.

    Cons

    You have to be disciplined and organized in order to have a great start. Like everything else a learning curve exists and if you don't have a clear drawn out plan then you might not make it, but anyone who does decide to stick around will definitely reap the benefits

    You get what you put in and YES it is commissions that will pay you more in 45 mins than you make in your 9-5!

    Pros

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE that they have resources for middle to lower income families and educate them in their finances including: life insurance, mutual funds, lower car insurance rates and other services. You make your own hours. Commissions based but if you get trained the right way and/or you do your own homework, you will succeed and make WAY MORE than a 9-5 in as little as 45 minutes. Primerica surrounded me with so many great leaders and millionaires that I will never settle for living a mediocre life. I believe that I have the potential to be part of the 1% of wealthy people in the world. May sound cliche but this is the way of thinking they implement in you and it is great! I left because I was not motivated to recruit 18-20 year olds because they are not committed (not everyone though!) but I will be back. I can call myself an entrepreneur because that is my life goal. Financial independence is every entrepreneur's dream and I love Primerica for drilling that into my brain and heart! Primerica pays for all your licenses, it is NOT A SCAM! I never got paid for my recruits but you best believe I made over $10k part time in 6 months.

    Cons

    -Your own hours, if you are lazy you will never do it. -Cold market if you don't know how to get leads, you will have to talk to people. -Recruiting, you do have to recruit people but BE SMART! Don't just hire any one who doesn''t have a market, you'll waste your time! -Training,if your upline (the one who recruited you) sucks, go out of your way and learn from other people, like Hector Lamarque. -Don't go full time until you learn the ropes. Save money so when you do go full time, you have something to back you up when you have those bad days. -People who give Primerica is either because they had a bad experience, meaning they were lazy/didn't like commissions/had no leads/did't like their office/didn't understand the business.

    Great Business Opportunity - Not for the Weak

    Pros

    You can absolutely change your life , financially and personally. Just like any business, you start promoting it to the people you know. If you started a restaurant wouldn't you tell your friends and family first? This is no different. Yes, once you are done training, you should be able to work on your own. Building a client base and recruiting other agents. It will push you to the limits, it will challenge you and you will grow as a person. All positives. Best of all, you make what you're worth. This is an opportunity to make a difference in your life and in the life of others. If you want to have a career that's worthwhile and make a difference in other people's lives then contact your local Primerica office. Dont wait just do it. Yuo have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

    Cons

    Its hard work. You will work every day all day until you succeed. Even then its still better than a job.

    Pros

    Primerica was a great company to get my foot in the door with Insurance and financial services. They assist getting you licensed and educated to help families.

    Cons

    Primerica is too much of a multi-level marketing business. Recruiting people and trying sell to friends and family is bothersome. At times I felt like a used car salesman. One dimensional by only offering term life insurance for younger clients, and not caring about older potential clients who may need assistance as well. The platform they offered to clients was not suitable for everyone.

    Pros

    Primerica is great for people who are very out going and are good at making selling point. And for people who know a lot of people. Your client base starts with the people you know so knowing people is a big plus.

    Cons

    If your aren't someone who knows a lot of people or if you aren't into creating relationships with new people you may come across you will have a difficult time building your business.

    Amazing Company with Amazing Values

    Pros

    Primerica Offers the opportunity to work for yourself and build your own wealth and not someone else's. Pyramid Scheme's are ILLEGAL. For everyone who thinks this is a pyramid get your facts correct before making remarks. NYSE does not allow any schemes to be on the stock market BY THE WAY. Excellent opportunity for open minded individuals who wants to balance their time and earn the income they choose to make not what someone tells them they can make.

    Cons

    It will take time for you to build your clientele , nothing happens overnight. You have to be willing to be patient and wait for the results to come in. This business is not for everyone, you have to have people skills. Be able to filter out all the untruthful remarks about the company said by individuals.
