Because they want everyone to think they are important. People outside the industry rarely know that everyone at their company holds a similar title. Those companies think the people feel special because they are dealing with someone with important. In my opinion.

It does sound impressive to people outside the industry. It’s also great if single and meeting women in bars.

The RVP title goes back to way before Primerica, the earliest that I personally know of if 1960's a company called ITT financial and also Weidel and Reid. Primerica adopted those titles because that's what was being used at the time.

Primerica uses the title because we’re a franchise company and the RVP title is where you have your own office and ownership.

Does base vs bonus really matter? I have an offer for 160k with 15k sign on. I was hoping for ~180k bonus (without sign on). But doing the math, it comes out very close to as if I’d have a 175k base without sign on? Maybe I used wrong tax rates? Anyone can help?
