Financial Advisor In Training Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Minneapolis, MN
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ameriprise in October 2012.

Interview Details

I heard about the job through university career services website and job fair. Laid back initial interview with behavioral based questions. I was invited back to Minneapolis to visit HQ, and spent about a day touring and interviewing with other student candidates from around the midwest. The interview on site consisted of more behavioral based questions and a mock sales phone call. Great building, great people, but a SALES job. Very competitive and results-driven.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ameriprise in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Consisted of 2 phone interviews, 2 assessments, and in person interview. After applying online at the career website I recieved a call from a recruiter that was 30 minutes long. After the call received via email the assessments. About 2-3 days after I was contacted by another recruiter for phone interview that consisted of behavioral q's and a "getting to know me". The in-person interview was at headquarters in downtown Mpls. This interview was a formal interview that consisted of behavioral questions, random questions, a conversation about past/history regarding resume, a mock-phone trial, a benefit's review, and a Q & A.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 months - interviewed at Ameriprise in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, received an email with a link to a personality test. After passing this test I was called and asked to come in and complete a cognitive skills test. You need to get something like 9/18 right to move on. This sounds easy but it does eliminate candidates. After passing I had a half hour phone interview and was asked to come to their final round interview day. This day was 100% professional from beginning to end! It included presentations, benefit overview and a final interview with a sales manager. I received a call the next week and was offered a position which I will be accepting. I highly recommend checking this company out.

    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiating. Base salary is fairly low but with incentives you can make more than the average entry level job.
