Financial Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee

Application Details

interviewed at AXA Advisors in January 2015.

Interview Details

I got an email from one of their financial consultants, saying they came across my resume. We scheduled a phone interview, and he started with the usual. Asked about coursework, background in finance, etc. One question that stood out was he asked about my social skills. I've been contacted by Prudential for a similar position, and they also asked about my networking skills. The other questions were mostly behavioral, such as "What is your best quality", "How would other people describe you" etc. Overall, it was alright but I wasn't interested in such a sales-oriented job.

    I applied through college or university – 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.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • All pretty straight-forward. They asked why I was interested in the financial services field.   Answer Question

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed 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.

    The process took a dayinterviewed 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.

    Interview Questions
    • What could you bring to the company?   Answer Question
    • Do you have friends and family in one of our locations? (Due to cold calls that have to be made)   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't feel like it was a competitive position and recruiters were rude with follow-up email.
