Primerica found my resume online and called me, identified themselves as "PFS". They misrepresented the position they were hiring for. Once I determined they were a financial service, I asked if the job was commission-based, that I was only interested in a salaried administrative assistant position. I was assured it was not. I spend 2 hrs between waiting, watching a video pitching selling/buying their financial services and "interviewing". There was no discussion about what the admin job would entail. The guy said he could not commit to hiring an admin at this time, maybe 60-90 days down the road they might hire from within. I could be eligible only after I become licensed, including securities. Like I said, I was not interested in sales and my time was wasted. An applicant I spoke to thought she was applying for a medical assistant job.

Thank you for this post. You saved me time and gas money. After being called by a representative for an interview which sounded more like a scam even on the phone. I was on my way to the interview, second guessing my better judgment and googled directions to get to the interview only to stumble upon this article and several others from trusted websites. Now I am spending my evening more wisely, investing my time rather in Christmas shopping.

I put my resume on the usual career websites and Primerica said they had the kind of job I was looking for, which I stated from the first was strictly clerical and did not involve sales of any kind. I went to the interview and found out they were lying. It turned out to be one of those phony high charged pep rallies by egomaniacs claiming that everyone could have the kind of lives they wanted if they sold Primerica products. I started to leave and a person at the door shoved a clipboard with an application at me. I was thoroughly disgusted at these lies and strong arm tactics and shoved it back, and left. Now whenever anyone calls stating they are Primerica or PFS representatives and they have a position that would suit me, I hang up. These losers don't deserve politeness. Only a firm NO and then block their number on your phone.
