Default Primerica

i put my "resume" on craigslist in the last week...got an email from a manager of primerica. a couple days later, they put this up: http://detroit.craigslist.org/sls/703980599.html

what exactly would i be doing if i was to become an "agent"? would it be working at a set location and talking to potential clients, or going around recruiting or something? my parents even thought as far as telemarketing...

thanks

well would this be too difficult of a job for someone my age? (19)

i mean, i'm not a retard, but i don't really know anything about finances, i have no sales experience, etc. they offer free licensing/training, would that be enough?

Any deals that sound too good to be true generally are.

I refuse any insurance type agencies that contact me as part of their bulk mailings. They scour Monster/Career Builder/ etc all the time. They just go by the numbers and don't care if you pan out or not. Just my $.02

Oh god... Now I know where I heard that name before. I think they tried to get Weif when she was working behind the counter at REI. Came in and asked if she wanted to change jobs... RED FLAG when someone tries to hire you without knowing anything about you!

Same ol' story... They pay for "almost all" of your training, blah blah blah pyramid scheme blah blah. You go to one of their seminars and learn how to get people under you adding to your income...

RUN AWAY!!!!!

I know someone who did this, it was like Amway...Tupperware..Avon..etc. The one guy brings you in and then gets a cut of what you do. I can not speak from any personal experience but it didnt work out for the guy I knew, plus he had to pay for all of his certs. I dont believe he liked to use the "hard sale" techniques that they preach.

when i worked for new day i was in charge of placing the ads to get people to come in and apply. we would throw big figures in the ads, people would see them and think they were gona get paid that much. we sold the rainbow vacuum cleaners, and we went through "agents" like crazy. if it sounds too good to be true it is.

I knew what they were before going to an "interview" just so I could get a laugh last year. The guy thta called me trying to snag me said he was a group vp of citigroup. When in actuality he was just a vp of primerica which in itself is shit.

Primerica is basically a company solely tasked with going after bad credit type folk and people with poor financial decision making ability. They offer retirement, refinance, and life insurance avenues to scam the unsuspecting customers out of. The guy that I got called by was a sleazeball when he worked for Ford in the 80's until he got fired and basically is still a sleazeball.

Run far far away. or go and laugh your ass off. I did.

i'm going to assume this place isn't legit either, or will have a hidden cost?

i see them in a lot of hotjobs listings, they don't really give much info about the jobs other than pay/hr and their number...
