    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview Details

    First interview was with a recruiter on campus. Consisted of an overview of the career and the recruiter asking me my income expectations, hours to work a week, etc. They are looking for people with an entrepreneurial spirit who are willing to work 60+ hours a week. Second Interview took place at the office with a VP. This one covered the "3 year plan" once you are in the business; covering salaries, commissions, bonuses, etc. The third and final interview was with the VP and the President. More behavioral questions (be sure to have a verbal resume, as this will help). I received offer immediately after third interview.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Originally, I was told the interview process was in three parts but it was abbreviated to two. My point of contact was a mentor that I would work with, if I was to join the firm. Meeting first with my potential mentor and an intern, I then met again with my mentor and the marketing specialist. My third meeting was to be with branch management, but that was eliminated to expedite the process.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications were by phone and email and I scheduled an interview in early January. The first interview was kind of a screening to make sure that you are well-dressed and gives you an overview of the position. They asked some questions related to work ethic, what I knew about sales, and what I thought of the position. They explained the broad aspects of the position and gave me a background check form that they would review before I was called in again.

    The second interview was more in-depth and they explained the training process, support structure, contract options, and the onboarding process.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions, but they want to know that you have the potential to succeed in a role based mostly on commission.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    This particular office gave me the feeling of a pyramid scheme and that I would not reap the total benefits of my work.
