Complaint / review text:
Tom Berchos of Primerica called me saying that my resume was passed around the office and he was given my name and number to call me for an interview. I asked where they got my resume and he didn't know. He asked if I had ever heard of Primerica and I said yes, and he seemed jumpy almost nervous and asked how I know of them. I said I thought I had heard of them in the financial news, but couldn't rememeber. Tom then said they were related to Citibank and some other big company.
He asked me about my work history, which I asked if my resume was passed around, why would he ask? He said he hadn't seen it so that's why he's asking me. Tom said he was interested in my work history and that he would like me to come in for an interview. I set a time and got all the necessary information such as address, directions and telephone number in case I got lost.
Well, as I try to do before each interview, I did a google search on Primerica and BOOM! All this bad information about the company popped up! Thank you all for writing and letting me know that this is a scam. I would have been very pissed to have taken the time and would have been polite enough to sit through their presentation, but never would have fallen for the scam of "fee-based" jobs! I'm not going to call them, I'm just not going to show up.
I do, however, feel that they took advantage of me knowing that my resume was posted and that I am searching for a "real" job.
