I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at AXA Advisors in February 2013.

Interview Details – I applied on my school website and received a call from HR a few hours after. An interview was set up. During the actual interview, the recruiter did most fo the talking trying to sell me on the job and what would be needed to be done if I was interested. I declined the offer and the interviewer wished me the best.

Interview Question – Nothing really. He asked if I was interested.   Answer Question

Financial Advisor Interview

Financial Advisor
Clifton Park, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at AXA Advisors in March 2013.

Interview Details – The interview process was really straight forward and relatively informal. We E-Mailed specifying a time to meet and I came to the office where we sat down and basically just had a conversation about AXA and about me as a candidate. Really informative and open about the system. I enjoyed the interview because it was not pressured and provided me more of an opportunity to ask questions and get to know my interviewer and AXA in general.

Interview Question – No really difficult questions for me, we just had a conversation. It was less questions more speaking back and forth.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I was looking for more opportunities that highlighted my skills and what I wanted to do. Competitive offer but not what I was looking for at the time.

Very Easy Interview

Financial Advisor Interview

Financial Advisor

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at AXA Advisors.

Interview Details – Hiring process was essentially a breeze. The only thing the hiring manager cared about was if you could become "contracted". This means, once you are licensed, you meet a certain commission level to be officially brought on board. The level is fairly easy to obtain, but this type of business opens its doors to all. They throw everyone out to the wolves and see you sticks.

Interview Question – No difficult questions. It was just an open conversation about family, school, hobbies, and minimal about the company or industry.   Answer Question

Financial Advisor Interview

Financial Advisor
Buffalo, NY

I applied through other source and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at AXA Advisors.

Interview Details – This is a drawn out process...at least three interviews. Relatively low pressure interview style. Get the impression that employees are DEFINITELY expected to connect to their natural market (meaning...call your friends and family). Advisors were friendly, and the office seems pretty busy.

Interview Question – Honestly, AXA did not ask unexpected questions. The process was almost too easy, which makes me nervous.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Must show why you add value or are worth more than "Joe" down the hall.
