I applied through college or university and interviewed at AXA Advisors.
Interview Details – Got a call the day after I submitted a resume through my university portal. The woman on the phone was very pleasant, and scheduled an interview for me. I showed up on the day of the interview about 15 minutes early - waited for about an hour. The interviewing manager never showed up, and the secretary didn't know where he was. I thought about reaching out to them afterwards to reschedule, but then I thought to myself, "do I even want to interview for a company like this" ? Needless to say, I never heard a thing from them since. High unprofessional conduct.

Very Easy Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at AXA Advisors in February 2013.
Interview Details – Four interview process:
1st interview was essentially a joke, they hardly asked me any questions about myself, mainly tried to "sell" me on the position. I may be wrong, but I thought you were supposed to sell yourself in an interview?
They then performed a background check and called me for a 2nd interview about 3 weeks later. I declined.
Interviewers seemed to be very well versed in the goals of their company, as I said, they tried to sell me on them.
Overall environment was very friendly.
Interview Question – All pretty straight-forward. They asked why I was interested in the financial services field. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at AXA Advisors in January 2012.
Interview Details – Was given a basic phone interview which consisted of an introduction of the company and what the position entails. When they asked me to come in for a 1-1 interview, I expected to be pitched about the position, which was actually a sales type job. But during the interview, the interviewer was up-front and didn't make any promises. He said it was a sales job that did require a lot of hard work (cold calling) and effort.
Interview Question – Mostly discussion about the position. View Answer

Interview Details – Be yourself and makes sure you show that you are serious about this career because it can be your best friend or worse enemy
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AXA Advisors in January 2011.
Interview Details – I was rather surprised with how easy the interview process seemed to be for the job that they were advertising. I received a phone call from my resume being posted to a career site and answered a few questions about how I work and what I want out of a position. For round 2, I came in for a brief 1-on-1 with the general manager who wanted to just feel me out. Wasn't an intense process. More of a casual meet and greet. Then for round 3 I came in for an 1 1/2 hour presentation of who their company is and how they function. Included in that session was a 1-on-1 with a Sales manager who asked me about my work and educational history and why I wanted this job. I came back for a 4th session for which they had me prepare a short "what are you top priorities in a job" survey and build a list of potential clients to give me an idea of what a consultant would do. At that point, I knew I didn't want the job and made it clear to them. I didn't feel comfortable with their payment structure (small base + commission which evolves to only commission after 3 years.) As such, we mutually agreed that this wasn't the job for me. They were very cordial, honest, pleasant and forthright with everything and appreciated that I was also.
Interview Question – Why do you want to be in the Financial Industry. What appealed to you? View Answer
The process took a day - interviewed at AXA Advisors in September 2011.
Interview Details – Interview was setup on the spot, so it didn't seem too hard to get. Very pushy about coming up for an office and all commission based.
Reason for Declining – Didn't feel like it was a competitive position and recruiters were rude with follow-up email.
