I'm surprised reading some of the messages on here. I worked with Primerica for a while, and it is a LEGIT business. However, it is not like many other companies that would hire you....I would compare it more to Real Estate, in the way that you're investing a little and having to put in the hard work in return for any gain. I admittedly couldn't do the work required to get myself off the ground, but have seen several success stories. I also continue to invest and work with an advisor to this day. It's a company that truly cares about helping people, and helped me find my focus and prioritize getting myself 100% debt free. Anyone would be lucky to work for them, if you think it's for you.
Just a suggestion for those skeptics: Type in any bank's name on this planet, and the word 'scam' and see what pops up. Then, maybe go check out the fact that they really do have an A+ rating through the BBB. Primerica's no joke, and I've seen it transform lives.
I received a call from Neil and he seemed evasive when I asked what he did and sounded surprised when I said I never heard of them. he didn't get into detail about what they did and cut me off when I was starting to ask. he didn't seem interested in what I had to say and just wanted to move the conversation along even though I have no experience in this type of work he said I sounded like someone he would like to talk to. I set up an interview and them googled them and I was amazed this type of thing still goes on.
I received the same call this morning from Neil L. I had made an appointment with him. But now that I know what the company does and everything, I won't be going this is not what I'm looking for in a job. Glad I looked this up to see what this company was about. He told me he found my name on career builder. I was floored at first but suspicious since not many companies call you unless you have put an ap in with their companies. I will continue looking for what I want to do. Thanks to all that wrote info. here it helped me out.
Yup, these scum have shills posting on all of these kinds of sites ... kind of tells you something, doesn't it?
Jennifer, are you working with them? You sure sound like it. Getting some "commission" for your post? I think YES!

I also received a call from Neil Lischka and he wants me to come in for an interview. He said I wouldn't be selling anything but he was soooooo vague about every question I asked and that raised some red flags. NOT INTERESTED NEIL
Thanks for this website, it gave me opportunity to cancel my appointment with Neil Lischka.....
I received a phone call from Niel Lishka on August 11, 2010. I have no clue how he obtained my number and I also do not know the name of the company that he is representing. Since I am on the no call list I feel that he has no right calling.
I was wondering how your interview went? I just received a call from Neil and thought his message was pretty hoky.
Received a call from this number. Answered and they hung up.
I received a message from this number also. The gentleman is Neal Lischka. He's a District Leader with Primerica. Primerica is listed on the NYSE under the symbol PRI. Apart from being incredibly knowledgeable, Neal is also a great guy. I interviewed with him. Tremendous opportunity for the right person. It wasn't for me. I just graduated with an engineering degree and am going to give that a try first.
Does anyone have Neil Lishka's email address?
I too was contacted by Neil Lischka regarding a job. This was 4 months ago and I told him I wasn't interested. Then today 3/23/11 I got another call from him? I am on the no call list and put my resume on Careerbuilder which seems to be the link for this man to get his information. I am set to interview with him on Friday even though I have had bad feelings regarding this since the first time he called me. I am thinking I will not go for the interview after reading the above information even though some of it is good. I just don't know why he would call me I have no financial background?
Here was go again. Neil called me again today (the last call was July2010), only a couple weeks after I updated my resume on careerbuilder.com. Doesn't leave the name of the company nor the position...
Neil Lischka has called me twice within the past week, looking for trainers and middle-management for the Primerica company. He had no idea what my employment background was so I am not sure how he got my phone number. I have recently been on CareerBuilders.com, however. I am on the no-call list. I originally set up to meet with him later this week, reluctantly, but will now call and cancel that appointment. I was glad to find similar postings. It made my decision much easier!
I too received a call from Neil Lischka on 12/28/10. Interstingly, I had just updated my resume on CareerBuilder a few days prior. I scheduled an appointment with him at the 2800 Royal Ave #121 53713 address. I was unable to make the interview we had scheduled and call back to reset for today. I got a rather odd feeling from speaking with him the second time (kinda creeped me out). Needless to say, I was having second thoughts about going to meet someone for a job I had not applied for. I am glad I googled this address because I found all these posts. I am not a salesperson and my resume does not mention a sales background. Since the Royal Ave address is quite a ways from my home, I too I am not going to waste my limited resources on this guy's fishing expedition.
This may be a legitimate company, however when I googled Neil Lischka (his spelling) I found I wanted to cancel my interview today. The conversation I had with him made me hopeful, however he specified that my background had nothing to do with the company's ambitions and led me to believe something completely different about what they were attempting. Upon reading this, I decided to call and cancel the interview, yet I keep getting error messages when attempting. I find this company too sketchy with its tactics, and I bid that one should consider the reputation they may get in the work market should they accept the position working for this gentlemen. Happy Job Hunting!
Wow! i just got a call today from Neil and I thought it waas strange that he called my cell. However, I am familiar wiht primerica the compant he's representing. I believe he got my information from careerbuilders.com because I just submitted my resume online last week and have been flooded with sale calls. I will meet with him to see what it's all about and make a determinatio from there. But I am glad i googled first. Thanks.
I received a call from Angela, from number 608-225-2381 the other day. The message left was only that her company is expanding in the Madison area, and wanted to speak to me. When we spoke, she then disclosed that the company is Primerica. Then started to ask me about my experience in training and customer support. But never once engaged in any discussion about my technical abilities which is crucial given my line of work i'm applying and looking for, yet still is asking me to stop by at the Royal Ave. office for an interview. I agreed to it. But since hanging up, it has bothered me that she never inquired about my technical skillset. I've been thinking that this might be some sort of Amway or other marketing scheme. She only gave very vague details about Primerica, and never mentioned anything about software, what they're hiring for, or anything like that. I'm not questioning the credentials of Primerica, I understand they're doing well, but that doesn't mean things aren't sketchy or i'm about to waste my time on an 'opportunity' that I have absolutely no interest in. And I'm too old to be dragged into another bs interview, and too broke to waste any resources on a bs interview. I'm gonna follow my gut on this one and cancel the appt. Nothing feels right about it.
I also recieved a phone call. I was driving when I took the call and had no way to write down his information. I asked him to e-mail me the specifics and he said that he had NO E-MAIL.... Who does not have e-mail and be in business???? I will be canceling my appointment.
Thanks for the great information.
I received the same call from Neal. I met with him for an interview. I was excited to hear Primerica is a growing company when the economy has been so challenged. I contacted the Better Business Bureau and they have an A+ rating. I'm looking forward to working part-time with the company.
Thanks for the information Ed. I agree with you. These are times of change. Just like so many of voted to change the tone of politics, we need to change the tone of the internet. Too many people aren't getting the facts and are just following the herds. I don't know why people don't understand there are people paid out there to take unfair swats at companies. Just because something isn't for someone doesn't mean it's not a great place for someone else. Thanks for your insight.
Thanks for the great link. I'm definitely going to meet with Neal. I called the Better Business Bureau and they have an A+ rating. I also checked with the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions and the company is in tremendous standing. You have to be careful today, but Primerica is a top-notch institution.
I thought that it may be beneficial to shed a little light on the subject. I am a client of Primerica and am very happy with the services they provide. They also presented the opportunity and I declined as I'm happy with what I do and don't have to time at this moment, but am considering this on a part-time basis to be honest. I simply said "no thanks" and that was the end of it. I didn't feel the need to get nasty or anything like that.
For those that feel like their privacy got invaded that is unfortunate, but in many ways one should thank that your name and number was passed along to Neal. The opportunity is tremendous for those that want to work hard and willing to be coachable and learn. It is not for everyone by any means. If it was it would not be an opportunity.
Lastly I'll leave you with some facts regarding Primericas IPO (initial public offering) on April 1, 2010.
Stock symbol is PRI on NYSE.
200 investors in 5 countries
96% chose to invest
Warburg Pincus invested 230 Million... before they invested they spent 6 mo @ Primerica's home office and 10 million dollars in due dilligence research prior to investing.
When people said they did some research... did they spend 10 million of their own capital to do it... or just "google it?"
Actually Jim Cramer of Mad Money spoke of Primerica on his show... can be seen on You Tube for those interested.
Neal Lischka is a District Leader with Primerica. I met with him the other day. Primerica is listed on the NYSE under the symbol PRI. The opportunity isn't for everyone, but the company and Neal are legitimate. These posts are definitely made by the uninformed.
Received a message from Neil Lishka (sp?) with the same vague message as those above. I have a resume on Career Builder, which is the ONLY place the number he called is listed. I detest these fishing calls; I get the same set of calls from insurance agencies asking if I want to sell insurance, but at least they tell me the name of the company. Someone who can't be bothered to name who they are working for reads as a scam in my opinion.
I thought I would google this number from Neil and here I am. I did find it odd he never said the name of the company ... sorry Neil I know zero about insurance and I'm not interested in it ...
Please, if you have received a phone call from Neil, consider the following: Capitalism has reached its nadir, and the corporate world knows this. The final grab for cash is on, and companies like Primerica operate sophisticated Ponzi schemes designed to separate you from your cash while you still have some (before the economy implodes entirely and all that is left are the haves and have-nots). Where did they get our phone numbers? Every social networking corporation from Facebook to Linked-In profits by selling your information to marketing firms. Depending on your profile specifications, you may become targets of the magical Acai Berry scheme, Metal Wristbands that cure arthritis, or Financial Products "proven" to build wealth during the economic downturn.
Woe to the desperate among us. Keep your heads, people. Unite in the struggle to outlaw bandit capitalism, corporate crime and complicit government.
