The whole purpose of hiring new people is to get your friends and families contact number, and sell the products to them. If you dont want to get unfriend with friends, stay away from this company. But if you dont really care, keep trying to expand your own team to be success
In spite of their boasts, the earnings facts they present are very misleading, unless you read the fine print.
Out of the 500,000+ reps who've ever worked there since 1977, here are the true facts when you apply their fine print;
Primerica-The real numbers! Primerica's big earners list is not only cumulative back to 1977, but also cumulative by level (ie: a $1M dollar earner also counts as a $100+k and $50+k earner, etc). When you factor out this accumulation, here are the true counts as of 12/31/14. (Primerica "Destiny" Book)
$50+k earners-3067 reps
$100+k earners-2845 reps
$1M+ earners-51 reps
$2M+ earners-16 reps
$5M+ earners-1 rep
That is a grand total of only 5980 reps who ever surpassed the $50k level, at least once, during their best 12 month rolling window, including any advances, out of the 100’s of thousands of Reps who’ve ever worked there, since 1977. Many on the list achieved that level only once. That represents about 1% of all who've worked there, and even then, many on that list never repeated those earning levels since.
Primeamerica Big Big Scammers,they prey on low level or uneducated immigrants from all over the world,especially Armenians,Filipinos,and others.
I have worked for a number of excellent companies
over the years, and set up and ran my own company
for 28 years. As good as all these companies were,
none of them could provide the remuneration or the
opportunity for personal and financial growth that
Primerica offers. The secret is that their overall
structure provides guidance and encouragement due
to the overlapping supervision during training.
Because the trainee needs this tender loving care
to withstand the discouraging remarks from skeptic
family and friends, it is important the the person
above him or her be properly paid for their time
and support - otherwise, that upper person could
be out selling financial services independently.
I have no problem with multilevel marketing - it
is far superior to the lineal earning of direct
hire employees, since it provides residual income
that reoccurs, like a royalty on an invention or
a book. Multilevel marketing is the answer to the
term "Income Equality", which was invented by the
proponents of the welfare state. The products sold
by Primerica are excellent, their company's people
have a positive philosophy, and their remuneration
for their people is excellent. For those who have
the dedication and will to succeed, the sky is the
limit. As one MLM group has stated, "for those who
have the will to succeed, our success rate is 100%." Like an old farm water pump, the handle
has to be worked or no water will come out.
The insurance agents or fiancial representatives explain me clients like a parrots that only talks what they taught.After all they are working for their commissions rather than consumer welfares.My suggestions is don't fall on their trap.Invest in real state or on your business better than stock,mutual fund.They may focus on life insurance and other financial information but if the main thing is recruiting more people so I can make more money its not for me, if your a person who likes to recruit then hey this could be for you...just not for me.Its looks ...another PYRAMID SCAM....
