First round is over the phone. Second Round: they give you a presentation ahead of time and you prepare it as if you were to present it to a client. After you've given your presentation, they will repeat it 100x better and then give you a couple minutes to prepare before they ask you to deliver it again with changes.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at AXA Advisors in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview was setup on the spot, so it didn't seem too hard to get. Very pushy about coming up for an office and all commission based.

    Interview Questions
    • What could you bring to the company?   Answer Question
    • Do you have friends and family in one of our locations? (Due to cold calls that have to be made)   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at AXA Advisors in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    Met Manager at a career fair at my university. Had first two interviews with him. First was an introductory interview, the second was heavy on product descriptions. The third was with the branch president and seemed like a bit of a rubber stamp interview. There really isn't a lot of probing in these interviews. They mainly want to see if you have the charisma to sit down in front of clients and lead them in a discussion of their finances.

    Negotiation Details
    They had a set salary for all people starting in my particular business group. It was take it or leave it.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at AXA Advisors in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was first brought into a room and asked various questions. Just the basic "are you fit for this position" type of questions coupled with the "tell me about yourself, 5 ways your friends would describe you, etc etc." The most relevant question to the job position was, "How would you first start gathering your client base?"

    I wasn't very interested in a sales position, I just simply wanted to see their recruiting process.
