  • Do your research.

    I feel like if you are looking to get rich quick you need a reality check. People fail because they are not doing their homework. $99 Primerica charges is not an "enrollment" fee. This is your independent business application you pay just as if you are already doing to the government to pay for your business licence. Primerica trains you for FREE and has you signed up and learning in an accredited course to prepare you for your provincial exam like any other investment, mutual funds or insurance broker has to obtain before making profit off of any work they do. If you do no take... More...

  • Interview

    This company's gotta be a joke.. The guy who interviewed me didn't even ask for a resume and offered me to join the company and start my training for $99. He was also talking about opening up numerous new offices in the future when there are already 50 existing ones in the region (that makes a lot of sense for the business, haha). He also suggested me to recruit my family and friends to join my team once I started working (none of them have experience in selling insurance, go figure). Of course I refused and walked away. Stay away people, they just wanna make a quick buck from you. More...

  • The REAL TRUTH...can you handle it?

    Primerica is a GREAT company! Check out the stock on the New York Stock Exchange! This company was started by teachers and coaches- not SALES GUYS! No need to be "overly professional looking when you have the plain TRUTH on you side. Most people that work at banks are "pretty" people who know nothing about money- but look good. In Primerica it's "People Helping People"! DUH!!! What's wrong with people today????? They hate "sales" people but yet they'd rather be SOLD than EDUCATED!!!! Primerica IS the LARGEST FINANCIAL SERVICES... More...

  • Make sense

    I have read many reviews, and must say some people should keep their untrue comments to themselves. First, each state has different guidelines as to recruiting. Some states provides a temporary license where you can make money right when you start. Second, the insurance policies are excellent. They may not have the cheapest rate, but what's the ole saying (you get what you pay for). 3) Most sales companies wants you to recruit. How will you make money if you don't hire people to eventually work for you. Lastly, I had a friend, who husband past, and Primerica paid a great amount of... More...

    Your company is good for one thing....SCAMMING!! If you guys had any sense, you would stop trying to scam the DC area. Everyone has heard of you and no one wants what you have to offer.

  • Primerica is not a Scam

    My husband and I were refereed by a friend for their services. What they offered was common sense by educating us. My husband has read tons of financial books and what we needed was that nudge from Primerica to get our finances in order. It's very similar to the Dave Ramsey model. My husband was recruited part time and after going to the convention I learned its going to take time for him to be profitable and he is going to have to work hard at it. You would have to be a dummy not to at least hear them out when it comes to the services they offer. The business is not for everyone. More...

I have filled out your downloadable CHANGE NAME FORM, I have sent you notarized copies of my court ordered name change, I have answered and verified all security and personal account info questions. You know who the hell I am. Yet you refuse to change the name on my account and are depriving me of closing my account with you and transfering funds to another IRA financial investment company.

  • Very irate

    I interviewed and was hired by Primerica, when I decided that it wasn't for me, I asked for a refund of the $99 they asked me to pay for background checks. I patiently waited the 3-5 business days they said it would take, and when I received my check, it was only for $69. I am a student, I could hardly afford the $99 for the background check, and once I learned more about the company, I didn't feel like it was for me. I expected to receive a full refund for the background checks. When I tried to call their service number, I just got a busy signal. I will not ever work for this... More...

    Fake insurance sellers. Do you know all the people who work for you? This is a outrage the rep told me that she worked for your company and her "boss" does too how.

  • Primerica is dishonest

    Primerica failed to execute the investment direction we asked for and ended up locking us in for 7 years!!! AND now they have the balls to want to penalize us for their incompetence. They also got us to cash out a whole life policy from a competitor to invest with them and ended up losing a huge chunk of it. I'm told by the umbsmen that this is their style. Primerica is not honest and will lie and invent to get out of their scam. STAY AWAY they train their agent to take advantage of people and they don't even know they are doing it.

  • Horrible Business Recruiting Tactics! BEWARE!

    A friend of mine and new Primerica recruit invited me to meet with his rep. because the “rep. claimed said she wanted to know more about my business.” So, I agreed to meet with this Primerica Rep., because at least this way I’d be doing a little business of my own and could help out my friend. He asked if I would go to the meeting too, but I declined. I had a 1099 business, and wasn’t looking for more. I’m doing awesome. After meeting the Rep. I was shuffled into a room full of others to watch the presentation I declined from the start, after the woman said she... More...

    Primerica is an amazing company ESPECIALLY during this crazy economy. If you go on BBB it's A++, it is #1 on the NYSE, most businesses have debt and Primerica is a debt free company therefore it's not like their educating families about their debt but are in their own. They let you know how to retire EARLY, get out of debt, and save money!! People are crazy not to just get the information. They changed my life and are paying me a GREAT salary. It's hope and opportunity for people to have a great life and be successful. You would be crazy to pass up a great opportunity! P.S I... More...

  • Primerica recruiting

    My college-age daughter was called by a Primerica representative this morning who asked her to come in for an interview for a part-time office position. When she arrived for the interview, she was ushered into a presentation about doing sales for the company. When she found out how she had been mislead, she tried to leave, but the front door was locked. She was essentially forced to stay for a nearly 2-hour presentation. If this is the way this company recruits employees, I feel very sorry for those unfortunate individuals who actually pay the $5000 for their "financial services." More...

    I think that Primerica is a great company, give people the opportunity of financial grow and to be financially independent, but the wrong information given by lets call them “Primerica REPS”, changes everything. But if you focus in the products they offer and not in the “REPS”, you will see that they are good products, they make you feel better by knowing that the future of your family, your retirement, the school of your kids, and more important to learn how money works and make it work for you and protect your annual income by a life insurance.

    I allowed a Primerica Rep to come to my home. After the meeting and information was taken down I had noticed some of my accounts were being hacked into. After research it was the Rep from Primerica that did the hacking. It alarms me that this company hires people like that. The individual that hacked also got a promotion. Doesn't seem right. Might want to screen your possible candidates better. More...

    I just started with Primerica and I am happy so far. I listened to the opportunity they were presenting and it seemed too good to be true. Before going to my first meeting I looked them up on the internet. I found it was definitely a real company and what they were doing was right up my alley. They help people. Not only will I learn how to get out of debt, I can help others. I was hired today and I am excited to start training. I don't know how many people actually read the contracts but I did. Every word. As long as I follow up with my end of the bargain, like any other job, they will... More...

    I would just like to say that my husband was a coach and teacher in a Christian school for many years making only $35,000/yr, but it was also his ministry. We sacrificed a lot so he could make a difference. Well when the school closed down (because of finances) we knew we had to do something different. That is when we started with Primerica. We saw the potential to have our own business and also continue to make a positive impact in society. We help families out of debt.. we teach and educate them on how money really works.

    Primerica will not stop bothering me and now they are trying to make me feel like I'm stupid. They're very high pressure and will not take a simple no thanks for an answer. They tried to get me to sign up and I said no so they decided to sell me Insurance that I don't need. They tell me my Insurance is bad and the one they have is the BEST.

    There's a lot of ignorance of Primerica because they dont use conventional advertising methods. Let me clear it up. First, its NOT a pyramid. Never was. Pyramids charge for admission into the business, not for licenses, and offer no product or service. Pyramids are illegal in the united states and Primerica has been around for 30 years. I think the government would have caught on by now.Plus, Citi group obviously new what they were doing when they purchased them.

I was an agent and I decide to finish my relationship with the company for two reasons 1) I did sales, the company rejected without explanation 2) My upline one of the best dont support me when I requested 3) My upline did a sales against the interest of the costumer. If you dont receive support from the company and from your upline its better to get another business

I just wish that they would call it what it is. Its a MLM business opportunity.

When they called me they asked me to come in for a Job interview what a joke no job just like I said business opportunity.


BobbyV says: (7 years ago)
I was a Primerica agent for 5 years. I actually made money and was promoted to Regional Leader. Depending on how you look at it is that you have to recruit to be successful. The products Primerica sells isn't the main product, it is RECRUITING. If you are not a people person Primerica is probably not for you. You will also have to commit to attending weekly 'OPPORTUNITY'meetings and 'TRAINING' meetings. But this was free training by the best trainers in the office to help you build your business, at no cost. You have to be willing to sacrifice a lot of time. I do think Primerica should be more upfront in letting new people know that this is a recruiting business first and selling products is second.
