EDitor's Comment: Rip-off Report Investigation: Primerica gets a POSITIVE RATING in customer support from Rip-off Report and is fulfilling its commitment to provide excellent customer service. Primerica pledges to resolve complaints and address representative issues. For a long time this EDitor had concerns about Primerica because of the number of Reports about them. For many months Rip-off Report was looking into the company, even before they contacted us to resolve any issues and mostly misunderstandings being posted by competitors. With over 100,000 representatives and 6 million clients, Primerica is bound to be the subject of a certain number of complaints about improper agent conduct, as well as product and administrative complaints.
Rip-Off's investigation found such complaints, but importantly also found that Primerica is committed to resolving such complaints quickly and doing everything possible to satisfy its clients. It also takes appropriate action against any of its representatives who are found to have conducted themselves improperly or unethically. We believe that the number of complaints against this company, whether through the Internet or other channels, is small when put into the context of its enormous size. Most big companies would never commit themselves like Primerica has.

I went to one of their group interviews. Here's what I noticed about the way they do things. The interview is moved at a very accelerated pace at night to avoid possible candidates from thinking.
All of the questions are formatted into what they have to say so that the "audience" gets involved and believes the BS.
Much like Charles Manson would give his disciples acid and manipulate them into mimicking his hand movements.
The one time a guy called out their bullshit the speaker become very angry in an attempt to shut him down.
I thought to myself that these were the classic markings of a cult. Sure enough, I researched the company and it looks like it.
I researched that they chant Amen.
Now one might ask. How do you know this by not experincing working with them first hand.
I HAD A DISCUSSION WITH AN EMPLOYEE who attends the same "spot" I do.
I had told this dude about their BS and how one of their agents continued to call my house and even ask a relative if I was coming to his meeting after I left him a very obvious message. "I want nothing to do with you."
He told a girl at the "spot" about these psychos. It turns out that she is a employee of primerica.
I told her about what I had found and she never gave a yes or no answer to any of my questions, she just said, "oh there's alot of agents out there from rival companies who post things to slander us."
I said, "there's no reason for person after person to make up that these psychos chant amen at their meetings. Am I right?" She said, " Well if there are african american employees chanting amen at the meetings they can't be stopped."
Just because they're black they chant amen, come on.
Thankyou for proving my suspicious.
I SAID oh OK I never knew that just to make her feel comfortable and set her up for the knock out.
I said, " your agents have said if you are skeptical do not join. Now to me that means they don't want people to question because they have something to hide."
SHE SAID, "Well as a recruiter what that means to me is
I do not want someone questioning what I am teaching them.
I want all of their heart to be into it. so it works. you know." She successfully repeated and proved what I had just said. You guys are smart do the math of the comment. They obviously don't want people thinking for themselves, do they? Otherwise the brainwashing would not work because for brainwahing to work one must let it.
All of their heart to be into selling insurance give me a break. What is it, a crusade. No. But they want the mentallity of one. Don't you think it's very strange that financial company would want that kind don't question dogmaticism? If you are doing business with someone
don't you want them to be someone who THINKS FOR THEMSELVES? Especially that they would think and question while they learn their craft?
By the way the name Primerica is very Orwellian.
Prime of America. If those *&*& are gonna be the prime of america we should all move to Europe.
Primerica DID NOT get any money from me but they were a terrible waste of time. That in my book, is a RIPOFF!
THEY SAY THEY CAN MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE. BULL*&*&.
ONLY YOU CAN MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE. DON'T FALL FOR THAT LAME HOOK.
SCREW YOU PRIMERICA. NO ONE WASTES MY TIME.
AND MOST OF ALL NO ONE ATTEMPTS TO BRAINWASH ME AND GETS AWAY WITH IT.
I HOPE I HELP SOME PEOPLE IN THEIR DECISION.
None of your business, Illinois
