    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very short first interview. It was mainly informational about the company, what they stand for, and the position itself. It is a very entrepreneurial position, with the potential to make probably a decent salary after a few months of training and very long hours at work. It is more for a person with plenty of free time, and great determination.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors in March 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted over LinkedIn, met with a senior advisor. Talked about how much money you can make if you work hard, etc. Normal for this business. However, never talked about how they can help a beginner get the ball rolling. Why take entry level people if you don't intend on teaching them how to prospect?
