Financial Advisor Interview

Financial Advisor
Dallas, TX

I applied 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 Question – 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

Financial Advisor
New York, NY

I applied in-person and 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 Question – 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

Reason for Declining – better opportunity was available
