Financial Professional Interview

Financial Professional
Chandler, AZ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed 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 Question – No curve balls from the interviewer. Again, they want as many hires as possible.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – If you are given an offer from this company, run the other way. Do not take it!

Financial Consultant Interview

Financial Consultant
Columbia, MD

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at AXA Advisors in February 2013.

Interview Details – Four interview process:
1st interview was essentially a joke, they hardly asked me any questions about myself, mainly tried to "sell" me on the position. I may be wrong, but I thought you were supposed to sell yourself in an interview?
They then performed a background check and called me for a 2nd interview about 3 weeks later. I declined.
Interviewers seemed to be very well versed in the goals of their company, as I said, they tried to sell me on them.
Overall environment was very friendly.

Interview Question – All pretty straight-forward. They asked why I was interested in the financial services field.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and interviewed at AXA Advisors.

Interview Details – I was contacted after meeting them at a career fair. I was asked to come into an interview and it was very laid back. It felt as if I could have the job if I wanted. One drawback was that they don't pay for your securities certification they only reimburse you after you pass.

Interview Question – No technical questions. All about you and what you're looking for in a career. If you want to work on commission then you can have this job.   Answer Question

Financial Consultant Interview

Financial Consultant
New York, NY

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at AXA Advisors in January 2012.

Interview Details – Was given a basic phone interview which consisted of an introduction of the company and what the position entails. When they asked me to come in for a 1-1 interview, I expected to be pitched about the position, which was actually a sales type job. But during the interview, the interviewer was up-front and didn't make any promises. He said it was a sales job that did require a lot of hard work (cold calling) and effort.

Interview Question – Mostly discussion about the position.   View Answer

Financial Advisor Interview

Financial Advisor
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AXA Advisors in July 2011.

Interview Details – I got a call from a recruiter from AXA Advisors asking me to come in for a interview. The phone interview was very short. I actually told them I wanted to get back to them before I schedule an interview and he was fine with that. A week later, I went in for an interview. Right when I got in, the receptionist asked me to fill out this long packet. After that, I got to meet my recruiter, who actually turned out to be the Assistant VP. I spoke to him for like 20 minutes, and then he introduced me to the VP and I spoke to him for about another 20 minutes. The interview wasn't hard at all. Be calm and you'll do fine.

Interview Question – Are you motivated?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Financial Advisor wasn't something I wanted to do.
