Last night I went to an interview for Primerica that I thought might be beneficial to my degree. I have a medical assistant degree, so I have been putting my resume on the internet searching for employment. Well I got a call from Primerica stating that they are a medical financial service company. I thought wow great this could be right up my alley. Well I got to the interview to find out it was a group interview. Previously that day I had called my recruiter and asked if this was a marketing, sales, or telemarketing interview of any sort. She said no, so I figured I would go. Anyways I got there and right off the bat I figured I had been lied to. Being as nice as I am I gave it the benefit of the doubt. Then I started to notice things that really didnt seem right. Like first two of the speakers were talking about their life experince with Primerica and how they helped them to get out of debt and the speakers spouse, well neither of them had a wedding ring on and the lady speaker was a little unsure of her "so called husbands name". Second, on of the "VIP" was showing a slide of people who had "worthless" jobs before Primerica and where they are now thanks to Primerica, well the guy couldn't even stay on the right line and couldn't even pronounce half of the crap he was trying to say. Then to top it off I asked my recruiter what this had to do with my medical field. She stated that people need to buy life insurance, because something could happen and they could die and in the medical field, you deal with death. That was the connection she used to get me there. The lady next to me use to do apartment leasing and her connection was that you have to buy mortgage help on a house or apartment and so since she use to lease apartments, that was her connection. Give me a break, they literally will pull anyone and anything off the street. What's funny is they state from the beginning "this is not a pyramid scheme", however you recruit people who recruit people who oh wait recruit more people and get paid for it. Pyramid---hello. Then what makes me laugh is instead of the word commission, because a lot of people do not want to work for commission, they call it "compensation", you know they tell you you'll make $1,000 for your work, its not commission, but we will "compensate" you a $1,000 for your first recruit. Please, same thing. Then about an hour into the meeting they drop the bomb on you. You can have this great job, at $199 cost to you, on the night of your meeting. Then you have to work at least 5 years before you will see any kind of "compensation" worth seeing and then you will receive $82.50 back of the original $199 you spent to give your license, oh if you train for 5 hours, and you pass the test. Not everyone passes the test. Also this is not a telemarketing company is a kitchen table marketing company. You go to people's home after 5 hours of training and tell them what to do with their money. Please I would not want some "warm body" coming to my home and telling me how to spend my money, when Ive been spending it the way I want to spend it for years. This company is a ripoff and a scam, and I wonder if the people they are supposively a branch off of know what they are doing. This company is dragging the main companies name through the mud and back again. Kayla Allen, Texas
