    Financial Advisor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview

    the worst interview that I have been through, they will talk to you on the phone for the first interview, then second interview is to meet up in their office, 1on1 meeting, however, there is not a single constructive question, after that 1 on 1 interview, I was told that they will schedule another interview going over the compensation and benefits to work for them. At the end, I didn't receive any information from them, I email them, no response, I called them, didn't pick up the phone, I left a voice mail, never called back. It was so unprofessional to the point where I don't want to and would never work for them. And the funny thing is, two months later, the same guy who interviewed me previously, called me again for interview??!? I guess he didn't remember I was the one that he humiliated two months ago.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received email to set up an interview. Interview was in person with a head of a team. It wasn't really an interview as in "walk me through your resume" but more of a "why do you want to do this?" "what do you like to do outside of work?" type of interview. Essentially making sure I knew what I was getting into and then making sure I would be a good fit. Very casual. After the initial interview, you fill out information for a background check and then you meet the whole team.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Edison, NJ) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Can be a few steps. Usually you meet with a senior advisors from the district before you meet with the district manager than possibly the svp. Questions are usually easy nothing any interviewing hasn't heard before. Sometimes management will just pass you on to some one else when they don't have time for you. Random Advisors may interview you which isn't always the best.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (New York, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online through my career site. This posting for an unpaid position. The interview process was more of a group interview, where all candidates were made to participate in a group. The position and description sounds good but it does not really hold true to its words. Work to be assigned was about searching for high net worth individuals whom the company could sell their insurance or services

    Interview Questions

    • There were no questions except for what kind of work would you like to do. Assist a financial advisor with their daily tasks like copying, printing etc. Not a good option for anyone higher than a freshman or someone who would be looking to work for free   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview

    Pretty easy overall. You'll talk to several interviewers. No hard questions. Be easygoing, seem trustworthy. The most important two factors they are looking for is your number and quality of connections, and your attitude/never give up/etc. Know what this company does. Pretty much, sell financial planning. Basic financial knowledge required.

    Interview Questions

    • Who are you going to contact initially for your first few sales? Why?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Nothing to negotiate.
