    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days - interviewed at AXA Advisors in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Brief interview consisted of why I though I could help the company. Also wanted to know what my long term goals where within the industry. I had a strong employer ref feral so the interview was more of a screening process than anything. Most of their interns are selected this way.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at AXA Advisors in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    This interview process was very long and pointless in my personal opinion. There was a few times where the interviewer came late or didn't even show up at all to the interview. There was a few times where I had to reschedule. They seem somewhat professional. Overall I ended up excepting the offer because of the economy right now but fortunately I still have a few other options just in case something happens that doesn't sit to well with me.

    Interview Questions
    • Even though we already know about your background and how good of a worker you are. Tell us something about yourself that we don't already know.   View Answer

    The process took 2 months - interviewed at AXA Advisors in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Communication with the company was very frequent and helpful. This company is very organized with its interviewing process and was able to accommodate my busy schedule and that fact that I had to drive down from a different city. I had three interviews total: in the first one I was asked questions about myself, in the second one I was told more information about the company and the training and the job itself, and the third one was more questions for me but with the branch manager rather than the vice president. I was offered the job the same day after my third interview. The vice president was very professional, friendly, and organized and made me feel very comfortable and relaxed throughout the interviewing process.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at AXA Advisors in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Received an initial phone call from one of the vice presidents., upon which he held an initial per-screening of my interest and qualifications. From there we set up an in person interview in his office. The first interview is your basic fit and expectations question and answer conversation.

    If they like you enough you will be asked to submit to a background check. Once that is cleared you will come in for a final interview with the VP that interviewed you and one of the three executives at the branch. You will be asked to present your business plan and talk about what your market is and how you plan on approaching the business. This interview is a lot more job specific.

    They will then take a couple days to review your candidacy with the rest of the VP's. Once that is complete they will let you know of their decision.
