    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    You will have an interview with a vice president. Make sure to be yourself and know that this job is only for ambitious people. If you dont bring in steady or qualified prospects, you will fail out of the business in the first 6 months. I didnt take my 7 due to a passing in my family and now that I look back, it is part of the reason why I am still at this job and also has a hand in the ambition and fire that pushes me to grind hard. My best advice is to stay in the present moment, find you "why" (the reason you get up every morning, it could be for a better life for your kids, a girlfriend you want to make you wife someday and treat to the finer things in life or to one day be able to bring clean technologies and knowledge to people in America in abroad who don't have access to it and all the whole population to enjoy the happyness that life has to offer.

    Financial Professional Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    The company invited me to interview after meeting them at a UCSD job fair. Initial interview was succinct. They very much emphasized the potential for "unlimited income" while de-emphasizing the "100% of your salary will be tied to commissions." After a successful initial interview, I was called back to a second. While getting paperwork filed, the company sent me my SSN to verify. They did not secure it in any way. Plain text, in an email. When I called them on the unprofessionalism of their actions, they were offended and withdrew the offer.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied via employee referral. I went through two interview processes, and most of the questions were behavioral. The employer wants to see whether you can actually take on the challenge or not.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you think AXA is a good fit for you? (It was difficult in the sense that you had to say it the way employer wanted to hear.)   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    After filling out an online declaration of interest, I received a phone call from a principal. We talked about the job and the day to day activities, and he asked if I would like to meet one of the local guys, which I did. I met the local AXA professional,who was incredibly professional. We discussed e local market, AXA culture, and opportunities. I met with the principal who originally called about a week later and he said that he thought I would be a good fit, so I began moving forward with the process of becoming an AXA Investment Professional. The people were incredibly thoughtful and engaging, gave me a wealth of information, and answered all of my questions. It was truly a wonderful experience.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question to me is always "why do you want to do this?" I want to do so many different things, so I find that question the most difficult to answer. The obvious answer, the one you are not supposed to say, is I want to do this for money. Most of the time, it is just that simple.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was for a position in my current city. My wife wanted to move.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at AXA Advisors in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    After an informal interview, you do a personality test and some other basic paperwork.
    If it's for commission sales, they are so desperate they will hire pretty much anyone. It helps if you have a history of fraud and corruption.

    Interview Questions
    • No curve balls from the interviewer. Again, they want as many hires as possible.   View Answer

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woodbury, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Pretty easy interview process. They like to hire as much as possible to hit their monthly and yearly quotas. As long as you're competent, personable and promising, you're most likely in.
    Licensed and/or proven path of sales experience and success is ideal.
    Not insanely formal in terms of questions. Also depends what manager is interviewing you.

    Interview Questions
    • They will want to qualify to see if you have people in your family/close friends who are high net worth who could be your first batch of clients and make you some money to start off.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Harder for those who are established (kids, major bills/expenses, etc.) because it's tough to make good money at first unless you're already in the industry and are planning to move over your B.O.B.
    Background check and credit check are necessary.

    Interview Details

    the interview process is not that intimidating; it is actually comforting that the interviewer was up front about what i would be getting my self into. He told me that it was an opportunity to help people secure their monetary futures though various financial instruments. All in all, it was a good experience
