Stay away from Primerica. My wife has a coworker whose boyfriend was being trained for this company. My wife was asked if she would help him out in his training. When she asked me, I told her that would be fine as long as they understood we would not be buying anything, and were only interested in helping this guy in his training. We were told that was fine. We set up for a meeting at our house. The coworker's boyfriend showed up with a "trainer" for our meeting. I assumed they were selling insurance, but all the trainer wanted to talk about was if we wanted an Escalade and how big of a house did we fantasize about. He also asked several leading questions that he tried to spin back to show how much like us he was. When we told him that we were both teachers he proceeded to tell us that his sister was a teacher who worked with RETARDS. He also mentioned smoking pot during our interview. It was so ludicrous that I couldn't believe what I was hearing. He also would argue with me about my existing loans. I took out a second loan to avoid paying PMI (which he didn't seem to know what it was), and he kept insisting that I got a second mortgage, and I probably just got ripped off. In the hour we were there we never were told the specifics of what was being sold. The best part was toward the end when he started to try to recruit me to sell. He kept asking me if I didn't see how this could change my life. I declined, but I said that I would be willing to hear what they could do for me. I told him we could meet after the weekend. All he left me with was a sheet to fill out with more contacts for him. He didn't leave any contact info or any information reguarding what he was selling. After sleeping on it, I decided i didn't want to play around with him anymore so I had my wife talk to her coworker to cancel and give the trainer my cell phone number in case he needed to talk to me. He proceeded to call me and let me know that we weren't the kind of people who Primerica wanted to work with (I'm assuming educated, debt free except for our mortgage, and well spoken is intimidating to them). He then went on to chastise me for wasting his time. I listened intently to it all this then asked whose time actually had been wasted. Long story short, stay away from these jokers. When the biggest thing they are selling is "Join us and you can get rich quick", run away as fast as you can! Michael ankeny, Iowa
