I am fascinated with complaints about Primerica. I am a Regional Vice President with Primerica in Seattle, Washington. I have been with Primerica since 1993 and run my own office. My wife is my office manager. Both of us are very thankful we joined Primerica. The company has one of the best financial and business training programs around.
Started Part Time
I made $2,000 a month as a part time financial rep with Primerica before quitting my government management job to join Primerica full time. Anyone can be successful in Primerica. But there is a catch. You must pass rigorous state and national financial exams and you must learn business, marketing and sales skills. Plus, you must work day to day, just like a job.
I challenge anyone who has written a complaint about Primerica to personally call me at my office at 206-525-9741 and convince me you did all these things and still didn't succeed. My guess is you didn't because you were hoping to get something for nothing. Success never happens by accident. It takes work.
My Background Prior to Primerica
I hold a Bachelors Degree from the University of Washington in Political Science. After getting my degree, I served as an Officer in the U.S. Army. After that I earned a Masters Degree from Seattle University in administration and spent the next 15 years working in high level positions in government, including being a Budget Analyst for the Mayor of Seattle's Office of Management and Budget. I later served as staff to the Seattle City Council's Finance Committee.
At the time I worked part time with Primerica I was a Division Manager for a property tax department for the King County Assesor's Office. In addition, I have served as a member of the Planning Commission for the City of Mountlake Terrace, Washington.
Is Primerica a Scam? Does it Work?
Is Primerica a scam. No.
Primerica is 30 years old. It is highly rated by independent financial rating organizations like Moody's and Standard and Poors. It is a division of Citigroup, the largest financial company in the world. It is a sister company of Citibank and Citicorp Trust Bank. By any independent assessment, Primerica is a respected financial services company.
Does Primerica work? Here's the catch that people who write in and complain don't seem to understand or don't want to understand. Yes, Primerica does work...but YOU must work.
Listen, if success in anything were easy, everyone would be successful. The truth is, success takes hard work. But if you dedicate time and really make an effort to get skilled and competent, the hard work is WORTH IT!
America needs more companies like Primerica.
Reminder to all of you complainers:
If you still have a desire to succeed, there are many of us who are willing to help you.
