    Financial Consultant Interview

    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.

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

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview Details

    There is a detailed, three interview long process involved however there are very few standard interview questions. The interviews are to see if you are personable and can hold a conversation beyond a simple "How was your weekend" question. The job requires an outgoing, "type A" personality, so if you're quiet and reserved, it may not be the position for you.
