Interview Details – Interview was a joke, lasted about 10 minutes and the person interviewing me basically just told me that if I got hired, I would be on my own to start contacting family friends, school alumni, professional contacts, etc. and offer them AXA's financial products.
Interview Question – Who would you contact to offer AXA's services to on day 1 if you are hired? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at AXA Advisors in February 2013.
Interview Details –
Had 3 interviews each of them they were weeding out a pool of people to end up selecting 2.
First Interview was the basic get to know you getting to know the company and why I want to be in this line of work. I was called back for a second where we discussed the program and the compensation. Also discussed how we approach clients and personal experiences with the firm
Was called back for a third interview where I was told to think of a target market I would go to if I was hired and then I met with the Branch Head. He was a very smart individual who liked truthful answers and not the typical responses. I was offered the position a week later now I am in the licensing portion before I become on contract with the firm
Interview Question – The questions were all really standard only question you need to really consider is where do you see yourself in 5 years. Be as detailed as possible Answer Question
Negotiation Details –
Your just about on Commission from day 1 so for those who don't have a nest egg to start your own practice dont consider AXA. You pay for your licensing about (800) which get reimbursed to you 70% once you pass all the exams.
From there you get paid several weeks a salary while your in a product training program. Once you pass this process you would be offered either commission+B (reduced commission of course) or Commission. Either way every year your salary gets reduced and your commission payout increases. Then one the 3rd year your salary goes away and your on full commission.
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at AXA Advisors.
Interview Details – I completed about four interviews before I accepted the position. The first two were the basics (tell me about yourself, what is your background, etc.) The third one discussed salary and more specifics. And the fourth was to answer questions I may have had and to offer me position. Nothing was too difficult or hard to answer - very generic.
Interview Question – Nothing was difficult. It was your basic interview questions Answer Question
Negotiation Details – When I was asked about salary they provided me with 3 options and said we will discuss them further. After I accepted the position and went through the training phase (4 weeks in front of a computer) the salary disappeared.
I interviewed at AXA Advisors in November 2012.
Interview Details – Called me after setting up a phone interview through email. Asked stereotypical interview questions. Went through how a normal day at the job would look. Discussed the exams to take and when. Left the interview with a sort of "if you want to take the next step, give me a call" type thing.
Interview Question – Why do you want to join the financial services industry? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Too sales oriented for my taste.
I applied online and interviewed at AXA Advisors.
Interview Details – They were very eager to have me come into the office for an in person interview. I showed up and the office is very nice and many people walking around. The interview process was pretty normal. She asked my strengths and weaknesses, as well as why and how I could benefit AXA. What they don't tell you before going in person is that the position is commission only and you have to pay out of pocket for Series 7 and 66. If passed you will be reimbursed. Also, expect 3-5 months unpaid while being trained and mandatory Saturdays cold calling. All unpaid.
