    interviewed at AXA in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was pretty laid back. There wasn't any difficult questions. They just wanted to get an idea of who you were. He asked what I was involved in in school and what I studied in school.

    Interview Questions
    • There wasn't anything really difficult. They asked how competitive I was and to give an example of when I was competitive.   Answer Question

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at AXA in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed at their Dallas, Texas office. Before I went in for the interview I had decided that I was not all that interested in the position after reading other reviews online. Most of the post described the position as a way to gain insight into a clients financials in order to sell them AXA insurance. Then the interviewer did not seem one bit interested in talking to me at all. He looks as if sitting in the interview was the last thing he wanted to do. He also asked me many, personal "icebreaker" questions, twice, like he was not listening to me in the first place when he asked them. If you are looking to be an insurance salesperson, go for it, but not if you want to be a finical advisor/planner.

    Interview Questions
    • Non of the questions were that difficult. It was like he just wanted to ask the basic, "Why did you choose this industry/job" questions and get me out the door.   Answer Question

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at AXA in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    They try to weed you out as quickly as possible. They tell you it's commission base only and the days are long with you being on the phone cold-calling most of the time. If that stuff doesn't scare you then they will "invest" in you, promising sponsorship with obtaining your series 7 and 66. Read other reviews posted on this site about this company because current and past financial advisors will be able to say more from being there longer. Also, this job is ideal for people who has a lot of friends with money to invest. Recent college grads with loans to pay, stay clear. If you do the math, you'll make more money working minimum wage in your first 18 months than being a financial advisor.

    Interview Questions
    • Come up with a business plan and tell us who will you target and how in a saturated market, but they don't tell you the last part.   Answer Question

    Face to face interview. More exploratory on both ends than anything else. I received information about the process and what to expect. Also, there was discussion about the needed certifications needed for the position.
