    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received email to set up an interview. Interview was in person with a head of a team. It wasn't really an interview as in "walk me through your resume" but more of a "why do you want to do this?" "what do you like to do outside of work?" type of interview. Essentially making sure I knew what I was getting into and then making sure I would be a good fit. Very casual. After the initial interview, you fill out information for a background check and then you meet the whole team.

    The hiring process consisted of 3 parts: the initial interview, a background check which if you passed the first two you would be called in for a second interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview

    There is a detailed, three interview long process involved however there are very few standard interview questions. The interviews are to see if you are personable and can hold a conversation beyond a simple "How was your weekend" question. The job requires an outgoing, "type A" personality, so if you're quiet and reserved, it may not be the position for you.
