I would like to share a brief experience my husband had with Primerica about three years ago.
My husband had graduated from college 5 months before we received a call from "Tammy". DH had been searching for a job without luck.
Tammy left a message saying that she had gotten his number from a college classmate of DH’s, "Bob". Tammy said she had a job opportunity for DH.
DH called Tammy back. Tammy said this was not a job in his field as DH had hoped, but an "excellent job opportunity!" and he could make "$100,000 a year! Primerica is a division of CitiBank!" She was very friendly and enthusiastic. He was impressed that they were a division of CitiBank. She wanted him to come in for a presentation. He agreed.
Lots of red flags went off for me. I asked:
1) What is the job exactly?
Tammy said, "That will be covered in the presentation". What's the big secret? Why can't they just be upfront about what the job is?
2) She flat-out offered you the job?
Didn't she want to know about your job experience before offering you a six-figure salary? Why didn't she ask you to bring in a resume?
DH researched it online. Turns out it wasn’t for him. DH called Tammy and said, “Actually, I did a little research on Primerica and I don’t think it’s for me”. Tammy hung up without a word. Suddenly, the enthusiastic and friendly woman on the phone wasn’t so friendly anymore.
Take what you will from that. I found it insulting and misleading.
