Interview Details – Applied for the position through school's career website. They emailed me two weeks later to schedule a group interview.

Interview Details – Since they kept calling me, I went in to see if it was really me they wanted. We did a one on one, (which I insisted on before any group). They insisted I sit through the group interview. The group interview reinforced the idea that they weren't really looking for someone (an MBA) like me in particular, they were just trying to find the most eager financial salespeople they could find. I made it clear that I would only accept the salaried route, expecting them to decline, which they did. I wished them good luck.

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

Interview Details –
The interview consisted of 2 parts
1 phone interview very basic explanation of the job
and 2 the in person interview
The did a good job trying to sell the position it is all commision but that is to be expected in the industry
they tried to convince that he believed I can make 100k the 1st year simply on his "intuition" and essentially offered within 30 mins
The weird thing to me was that they don't pay for your licenising and exams they expect you to shell out $1000 and they say if you pass they will reimburse you and add an additional 1,000 I found this kind of weird for such a known company especially becasuse every other insurance/finance company covers those fees.
Interview Question – Honestly non it was more like why do you want this job? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Overall I just felt that the recruiter was giving me a sales pitch claiming that he like me and knows that I will be succesfull, although it was nice to hear I felt that he said the same thing to every person that comes in there.
