I applied through college or university – interviewed at AXA.
One interview with my future manager. He asked me some basic questions and mostly tried to understand which courses I had taken and what I learned in these courses.
It was mostly to know whether I was a serious candidate.

I applied online – interviewed at AXA.
Pretty straight forward. I talked and the manager & he nodded his head. Very friendly & laid back, yet not informal. Received an offer the following day. Stressed the importance of working with slow computer systems which may sometimes crash (they definitely do on a weekly basis, yet IT is always standing by.
- How would you handle multiple systems Answer Question
Pretty direct. I was offered the higher tier due to my experience. No need for me to negotiate.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at AXA (New York, NY) in February 2015.
2 short personal interviews with a 3rd interview presentation. They are mostly trying to feel you to see if you have a normal personality and will be able to connect with other people (clients). Not much of an interview process rather a process of seeing if you would be able to succeed in sales.

I applied online – interviewed at AXA.
Submitted my resume after seeing job postings on various sites, including my universities career center. After a few weeks I got a call asking to schedule a phone interview.
The phone interview was short (about 20 minutes) and was mostly centered around me asking them questions. The person I interviewed with was initially nice and honest. She told me about herself, the company, and about the position. She made it known that the job was mostly about sales and networking.
In between scheduling the interview and the actual interview i learned things about the position (through glassdoor reviews) that made me hesitant about the position. Basically if you don't already have a large client based you probably won't succeed. I asked her about the client building aspect and was honest with her and said I'm not sure i want to continue with the interview process because i don't believe i have a large enough network to draw upon.
The interview turned sour and she asked why i even bothered applying if i wasn't willing to do the work required. A fair point, however the ads i saw didn't mention how the position was just sales and 100% commission with little training available. I was only trying to be honest about my reservations for scheduling an in person interview. However, before i could really explain myself she said goodbye and ended the call. Yeesh.

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at AXA in December 2014.
I met the employee at a school-sponsored career fair and sent him my resume. About a month later I received a phone call for an interview. Interview took place at their office and was very casual asking questions and the interviewer was really easy to talk to. Overall great experience.

I applied through college or university – interviewed at AXA (Jacksonville, FL).
Went to the office for an interview. They didn't ask many questions, mainly just had a conversation and talked about the job and myself. Office was very nice with a view of the St. Johns River. Everyone in the office seemed very nice. Traits they were looking for are hard working and ability to be coached. Seemed like they had a good training program that involved a lot of job shadowing after receiving your licenses to sell their products. If your going to interview just make sure you have something to talk about.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at AXA.
I was called quickly after applying for the position. I went in the next week, and the interview was very low key and unintimidating, with a friendly atmosphere. This was only the first interview, mind you, but it seemed like it was more concentrated on whether I was up for furthering the hiring process, and had the personality for the position, not grilling me to extract some secret weakness that wasn't apparent from my resumé.
- "Are you comfortable building something from scratch?" Not because of the difficulty of the question itself (as I said, it was mostly innocuous beyond the basic "Tell me about yourself?"), but because I had a slight misunderstanding over what my position would be. Building my own client profile from scratch was something I could do, but not entirely interested in. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
It really had nothing to do with my educational background, which is fine. But it was primarily a sales position, something I didn't want to do badly enough to thrive at it. Everything else about it was great though.
