    Financial Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at AXA Advisors in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview started out like a typical interview with questions about my background, experience & personality. Later on the interviewer started asking questions about what my parents did for a living and what my wife did. The guy used this information to try and 'sell' me the job and tell me why it was a great fit. That kind of tipped me off that this wasn't what I was looking for.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at AXA Advisors in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview questions include: tell me about yourself;
    how important do you think team work is as an advisor;
    What do you think you can bring to the company;
    Are you willing to relocate;
    Do you have any sales/ closing experiences?

    Interviewers should prepare some ice-breaker topics to the interview to talk about yourself, as one on one interviews can be intense and nervous racking.

    Interview Details

    So far I have had 2 rounds of interviews, my third is next week with a panel. The first two have been a breeze; first one had general questions about my background and what I thought the job entailed. The second they showed me a powerpoint selling the position and how difficult it is to build your own practice.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at AXA Advisors in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    the interview process is not that intimidating; it is actually comforting that the interviewer was up front about what i would be getting my self into. He told me that it was an opportunity to help people secure their monetary futures though various financial instruments. All in all, it was a good experience

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    There was two positions advertised. One did not exist when I interviewed for it .
    It was the typical financial services position. Give us a lot of business and we will not give you much in return.
    The people advertising the jos were friendly and helpful and the office had a good atmosphere. It was the hiring manager that had a very negative attitude.
    Obviously, there was a lack of communication from some source regarding the actual positions advertised.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at AXA Advisors in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Since they kept calling me, I went in to see if it was really me they wanted. We did a one on one, (which I insisted on before any group). They insisted I sit through the group interview. The group interview reinforced the idea that they weren't really looking for someone (an MBA) like me in particular, they were just trying to find the most eager financial salespeople they could find. I made it clear that I would only accept the salaried route, expecting them to decline, which they did. I wished them good luck.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    The company invited me to interview after meeting them at a UCSD job fair. Initial interview was succinct. They very much emphasized the potential for "unlimited income" while de-emphasizing the "100% of your salary will be tied to commissions." After a successful initial interview, I was called back to a second. While getting paperwork filed, the company sent me my SSN to verify. They did not secure it in any way. Plain text, in an email. When I called them on the unprofessionalism of their actions, they were offended and withdrew the offer.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    interviewed at AXA Advisors in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Wanted to get to know you not your resume to see if you're a good fit. After about 2 interviews they wanted me to meet with a managing person and present to them a business plan on how I would approach personal contacts to eventually bring them in as clients. I wasn't comfortable giving them all the details of my personal contacts (even though they said they wouldn't use them, still didn't feel right) so I canceled my next interview. Felt somewhat like an industry where i'd be used for my connections then tossed into the pool to sink or swim. (they said they had a great program that would teach you, but I don't think I was too sold)

    Interview Questions
    • They just want to know who you are and if you'd be a great fit for the position. I think the hardest is listing off the top of your head about 3 contacts you would be able to bring to the firm. Dealing with how much information you're willing to provide without giving them the upper hand in using your contacts.   Answer Question
