    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at North Star Resource Group (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2015.

    The process started with filling a form that required me to enter basic information such as Past experience, qualifications etc. Once that was done, I was asked to go to the third floor. As soon as I got off the lift, the interviewer was waiting for me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at North Star Resource Group (Dallas, TX) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Received a call telling me to take a personality test. The personality test is long and is usually failed towards the end. Note: it is easy to fail. Apparently 80% of candidates fail.

    Apparently, should I have passed the test, I would have had a long interview process consisting of sales pitches, meeting with senior executives, etc.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at North Star Resource Group (Chicago, IL) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Overall, I was disappointed. This was strictly a sales position. There is no advisory role associated with this at all. It is very marketing focused where one has to bring in clients. The training period can last up to three years and the pay is not satisfactory to the work required. The interview process also takes a lengthy time. I believe it consists of five or six steps. I would recommend shortening the interview process to two or three interviews.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at North Star Resource Group (Minneapolis, MN) in June 2011.

    Interview

    After getting to the office 15 mins early I was asked to wait in a lobby for roughly 25 mins. The lobby is not on the same floor as the office. I was then asked to ride up the padded elevator to the fourth floor. I was wearing professional business attire and well prepared for the interview. I was greeted on the fourth floor by a lady in jeans and a fleece. The interview took approximately 5 mins. I was asked about 3 questions and the interviewer didn't look me in the eye even once. When she was done writing on a pad of paper (clearly unprepared and unaware an interview was even taking place) she looked at me and gave me a list of reasons why I was not a good fit for the company, none of which seemed to make any sense at all as to how they pertained to the job I was applying for. Her tone was incredibly condescending, a peculiar recruitment approach. She talked at me as if I was in middle school. I have had interviews with many companies in the same industry and have never had one as terrible as this. I tried to ask a couple questions I had prepared for the interview but ended up forcing out a smile and leaving. I felt terrible for coming and even worse for trying. If this is their recruiting practice I would seriously reconsider getting on board with this organization.

    Emailed a "Talent Recruitment" employee with a brief cover letter and resume. Phone interview was scheduled a couple days later. Interviewer was not friendly at all, but the questions were pretty standard (i.e. strengths, weaknesses, time you failed, time you succeeded).

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at North Star Resource Group in August 2011.

    Interview

    Started with a personality test, then a phone interview. After that there was a background interview. About a week later I was scheduled for an interview where I ask current employee's about there job and experiences so far within the company. Next step would have been filling out a business plan and presenting it to senior partner. Friendly people.
