    The interview process was difficult and took multiple interviews just to get salary requirements. The company is a strong foundation for getting a career in the business field. I competed against five other individuals but was under qualified. The company looks stable and continues to grow.

    Director, Marketing Research Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at AXA Equitable in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied in April, and received a call from an HR rep in early July. The HR just screens for current salary and reasons why I was looking to leave. Then I had a call with a hiring manager. She was mostly concerned with my project management skills, and B-to-B nature of the work. Then after a couple of weeks I was invited to meet another Director (who would be a colleague) and the hiring manager. Both were very professional, competent, and I felt the connection with both, and was confident they will invite me for the final round. It did not happen, and I was waiting, and waiting. Following up, of course. HR was not very responsive. Then I saw that they re-posted the position on their website, so I assumed I did not get the job. Then after a month (we are into late August already) I got a call to schedule for the final round. I would meet the Direcor again for 45 min (I was lost why, she did not have any questions for me already) and the hiring manager for another 45 minutes. and then I would meet another VP and an SVP for 30 minutes each. So the schedule was for almost 3 hours... The whole department is sort of lost, the only peoson who is doing research is that director, and she has two VPs as managers... So I felt there are more managers than those who they manage. Good luck.

    Summer Actuarial Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at AXA Equitable in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    After I sent my cover letter and resume by email, I was contacted within only a few days. They responded very quickly, considering I sent the email during the Christmas holidays, and as soon as the holidays were over, they immediately called me. Since I was leaving the country in only a week, I wasn't going to be able to interview them in person. I explained my situation, and they were very understanding, and scheduled an interview over Skype the following week. I interviewed with 5 different people in the company, some of them individually and some of them in pairs. Each interview lasted about 45 minutes. When I first heard that I was going to be interviewing for 45 minutes with each person/group, I was scared that I wouldn't be able to say enough. However, everyone that interviewed me was extremely friendly, and the time went by much faster than I imagined. The interview was actually fun. It was my chance to get to know the company better and ask any questions I wanted. Two of the interviews were actually interviews (meaning the person/group asked me questions and then listen to my response), but they were so friendly and casual about it that it didn't make me nervous. Another one of the interviews was more of a "Let me tell you more about our company and let you ask questions about it" session than an interview. The interviewer actually talked much more than I did. And then another one of the interviews was extremely casual and there were no interview questions asked. It was just simply a friendly chat to help me relax. The offer also came very promptly. I received a phone call the morning after my interview. They were very accommodating, and allowed me to ask more questions about the internship. When I asked how long much time I had to respond to the offer, they asked me, "How much time would you like?" so I said I just wanted to think it over for a few days (just to do some last minute research on the company and see if other companies are going to offer me anything), the guy asks "Would 3 weeks be sufficient?" which was much more time than I expected. Overall, I really enjoyed the interviews and the company made such a good impression on me that I accepted the offer the next day. Everyone was extremely nice, and I really look forward to working with them.

    The company has pre-determined formulas for calculating how much actuarial interns are paid. The hourly rate is twenty dollars plus an additional dollar for each exam you've passed so far. For example, if you've passed two exams so far, you get paid $22 per hour, and you work 40 hours a week for 10 weeks. Since this is already a set formula, I didn't try to negotiate.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at AXA Equitable in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Pretty standard 1 to 1 interview. Had me fill out a background check form and wanted to schedule another interview. They said the second interview would be partially a seminar and part interview with the team management. They had made the position seem like it was more analysis, but I left with the feeling that it would be purely insurance sales. Plus it's all commission based for the first few months. Definitely and industry where you can make some money, but its not easy.

    Compliance Officer Milwaukee Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at AXA Equitable in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had interviewed for THE SAME JOB three different times within 18 months. Once I applied from a job board. Once they cold called me via LinkedIn. This office is run so poorly that i did not even get an email saying they picked someone else. I called the Compliance interviewer and "we've just been too busy". They operate a 100% paper-based office, and the drudgery must be insane. One senior guy keeps that whole office somehow sticking together.
