Financial Consultant Interview

Financial Consultant

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Countrywide Financial in April 2007.

Interview Details – Interviewed with threee different people, 1 in person & 2 by phone. Overall went fairly smoothly but they required lots of background checks. Had me do a simulation of selling to someone over the phone to check my skill set & competency level. Some tough questions but fair overall. One of the more thorough interview processes I have been through.

Interview Question – Perform a 45 minute roll-play of trying to sell to a customer over the phone.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Little negotiation ability. The company is set on their salary range which is pretty small.
