    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Originally, I was told the interview process was in three parts but it was abbreviated to two. My point of contact was a mentor that I would work with, if I was to join the firm. Meeting first with my potential mentor and an intern, I then met again with my mentor and the marketing specialist. My third meeting was to be with branch management, but that was eliminated to expedite the process.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview Details

    First interview is just informative and if still interested go back for another one. The job is just cold calling trying to get clients for the managing partner. It is not financial at all but rather a sales job. No salary just commission based.

    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 online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications were by phone and email and I scheduled an interview in early January. The first interview was kind of a screening to make sure that you are well-dressed and gives you an overview of the position. They asked some questions related to work ethic, what I knew about sales, and what I thought of the position. They explained the broad aspects of the position and gave me a background check form that they would review before I was called in again.

    The second interview was more in-depth and they explained the training process, support structure, contract options, and the onboarding process.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions, but they want to know that you have the potential to succeed in a role based mostly on commission.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    This particular office gave me the feeling of a pyramid scheme and that I would not reap the total benefits of my work.
