    Nice group overview the first day. Explain the rough blue print pretty well. As is industry standard, be prepared to be offered a position that is eventually 100% commission with a paid training period. I believe they didn't always have paid training, which is nice.

    First you get a phone screening, should be pretty easy if you have a pulse. Next goes to a group interview where they try to sell you the company as much as possible. Both group and individual interviews. Last interview you have the job.

    It is a three step interview process with plenty of time in between interviews. Not many tough questions more personalty based. They want to make sure you are competitive and dedicated because the position is a grind.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at First Investors Corporation in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    They emailed me back within 30 minutes of submitting my resume...at 10:30 PM. Both interviews began as a group interview with a presentation and then split to 1-on-1's. The atmosphere was pretty laid back and there were no difficult questions to answer at any point. The people were genuine and nice, but the opportunity seemed too good to be true.

    Interview Questions
    • The hardest question they asked was, "why should we hire you".   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Everything sounded too good to be true. Plus, they want you to target family and friends right out of the gate.

    Interview Details

    It was a thorough 3 step interview process. They don't just hire anybody. First was a phone interview by a regional recruiter. Then a 1 on 1 interview with the Manager. Then a social interview with the manager at a restaurant. It was pleasant.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at First Investors Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Originally approached due to my capability to process numbers. But, soon realized, the company was not acting professional. Went in for the interview and office was shabbily organized. Interviewer was 15 minutes late. Questions included nothing relevant to the job at hand. She asked me about my family background, and how their money was being taken care of. I immediately was not interested. When I got home, I read online that it was similar to a door-to-door approach for financial advising and was solely commission based.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at First Investors Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through their website. Got a phone call from the regional recruiter, asked few basic questions about why you chose the company. Then you will set a date for the first interview with the specific location office. First interview was a group interview which the division manager talked about backgrounds. Then you will get to second round. Manager will call and set another date, ask him/her what you will need to prepare they will give you a heads up. Do your homework and most likely you will get an offer.
