Application

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

Interview

One on one interview with VP. The interviewer was very personable. Straightforward questions about why you want to be an adviser and why you will be successful. Beware, a lot of hidden costs they do not spell out to you. Ask questions. You earn the highest commissions on insurance products. They say they will not push these insurance products on your clients... Doubtful. They are salesmen, selling their company to you. Keep that in mind.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    3 rounds until decision is made. First round: casual and is a 30-60 min session of getting to know why you want to work for AXA. Second Round: more informative and lays out the structure of pay and how one can be successful at the company. Third Round, meet with the branch manager and make a short business plan on how you will be successful at AXA (most of this comes from the second interview--so take notes if you want to do well).

    I applied online – interviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview

    Pretty sure it's a three interview process. Went in for the first interview with the vp of the office. He didn't ask many questions, we were just going over the logistics of the job, a lot of cold calling to create your cliental base. For the second interview he was going to give me a packet of information and wanted me to bring in a business proposal on how to get more clients. He invited me for the second interview but I declined.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors (Edison, NJ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I met one of the managers at a college career fair and gave him my resume. I was called the following week for an interview. It was more of an info session and the only question he asked was if I had any questions. He invited me back for an interview with the branch manager. This interview was more of an interview and he asked me questions about sales and why I would want this job. He also provided me with more information about the training program and compensation. The training program was not very extensive and they would be paying you minimum wage for the duration of it. The starting salary was also very low once you get past training.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at AXA Advisors (Fort Worth, TX).

    Interview

    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.
