Intern Interview

Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at AXA Advisors in April 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online and was called to set up an interview the next week. The interview process was very straight forward. I was asked to go into a room where a lady met with me asked about my qualifications and why I would be a good fit. the interview lasted about 30 minutes and she offered me something on the spot. As an intern I handled all interview candidates from interns to advisers setting up appointments etc.

Interview Question – There were no business cases just emphasis on personality and technical ability.
Excel experience is also a plus.

Financial Services Professional Interview

Financial Services Professional

I applied online - interviewed at AXA Advisors in March 2012.

Interview Details – 3 rounds of interviews. The first one is mainly for them to get to know you, It involves a long monologue that includes description of the job, hiring, process, training process, and information on the certifications you will need to get before you can be a contracted employee. The second interview focuses more on the training process and how you will get clients when you start. The third interview focuses on pay and then they will either give you an offer or they won't.

Interview Question – describe a three pronged approach that you took to solving a situation and how did it turn out   View Answer

Reason for Declining – It's a great opportunity, but you don't get paid during the time you are studying for the certifications you need in order to be a contracted employee. You have to get your series 7 and series 66 which can take up to 12 weeks. I have to many bills and my loans are going to kick in right away. If I would of been better off I would have accepted the offer. The average pay within 4-5 years for this position is 80-120k.

Financial Advisor Interview

Financial Advisor
Buffalo, NY

I applied through other source and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at AXA Advisors.

Interview Details – This is a drawn out process...at least three interviews. Relatively low pressure interview style. Get the impression that employees are DEFINITELY expected to connect to their natural market (meaning...call your friends and family). Advisors were friendly, and the office seems pretty busy.

Interview Question – Honestly, AXA did not ask unexpected questions. The process was almost too easy, which makes me nervous.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Must show why you add value or are worth more than "Joe" down the hall.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at AXA Advisors in June 2013.
