Interview

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. Third round: meet more of the team/discuss logistics

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at AXA Advisors (Houston, TX) in September 2011.

    Interview

    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

    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't feel like it was a competitive position and recruiters were rude with follow-up email.

    Financial Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at AXA Advisors (Salt Lake City, UT) in December 2010.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at AXA Advisors (Dallas, TX) in December 2009.

    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?"
