    Financial Services Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at First Investors Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Received a phone call for an interview of which I do not recall applying for, but with the "I need a job , any job jitters" I agreed to an interview. Like everyone else described I was told to come in the following Tuesday for a group interview. After reading up on the company and position I opted out of the gig because with a new born I would not be able to commit the time required especially to a position I had no passion for (finance). Not to mention I did not have the money required to pay down on a licence for a position I have no interest in (finance)

    Met Richmond VP at job fair, was contacted for an interview. Six other people were there, we were given an hour presentation on the company, fairly standard, and then had an interview that lasted less than five minutes. Basically just checking for a pulse before the next interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at First Investors Corporation in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I met a recruiter a career fair and he was just weird. He asked me regular small talk questions and every time I tried to answer he'd interrupt me mid way. He seemed distracted and I was getting annoyed because that's just plain rude. I described some of the work that I do and he was more interested in how many connections I had and how big my portfolio was. He then gave me a pamphlet and told me to do research on what made these people successful and if I possessed any of those qualities. Afterwards, I went home and researched the firm and wow, I was not wrong. It's sketch.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at First Investors Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with the San Jose Office a few yrs ago. The time I went we were all put in a room and were given an overview of what First Investors is all about. There was about 10 of us. Its a sales job, they look for the best ones who can BS customers into buying their funds. It doesn't take a genius to go google and figure out their funds trail most of their competitors.

    Interview Details

    The are very quick to reply to any applications and seem to be hiring constantly. The first interview was basically a large group based affair where they sell you on the company and the opportunities available. Got invited back to a second interview quickly. Decided not to go as I learnt more about their business model which I find personally to be predatory and not for me.

    Interview Details

    The first round of interview consists an hour long presentation with a group of interviewees in an attempt to sell the company. Then the group splits into individual interviews. Typical behavioral questions such as what motivates you? What are your strengths and weaknesses. If you make it to the second round, the same exact process is repeated. Again with another presentation, this time more effort in selling compensation. Group separate in to one-on-ones. Decisions made almost right after the second round finishes.
