Very Easy Interview

Accelerated Management Trainee Interview

Accelerated Management Trainee
Charlotte, NC

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Financial Foundation Group in September 2011.

Interview Details – If you apply and have a degree they will hire you, they have no investment in you so if you don't work out they will hire some other random soul a week later. You interview with the top sales individuals who are the managers and then they decide which one wants you to be on there "team"

Interview Question – Typical Sales interview nothing difficult, just be sharp and clever and you will be in and out in no time.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiating you accept the position with its benefits or you can decline

Accelerated Manager Trainee Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Saint Paul, MN

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Financial Foundation Group in March 2013.

Interview Details – It started out with an initial phone screen, which then led to an aptitude test and then a meeting with the area manager. After a meeting with the area manager you will get invited to do sit in on the day to day operations.

Interview Question – What is it you want to do in your dream job?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Mortgage sales position not what I as looking for, it would be perfect for someone wanting to get into sales

Very Difficult Interview

Management Trainee Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Saint Paul, MN

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Financial Foundation Group in April 2012.

Interview Details – Filled out an application online and spoke to the manager on the phone. I went in for an interview on a Monday where it began with filling out a paper application. The manager asked me questions and said he needed to see my college transcripts. He said he liked my confidence amongst other compliments. He said he would call me back in a couple days to schedule a follow-up interview, likely Friday afternoon. I called back on Tuesday when I had access to a fax machine to send over my school transcripts, and he again said that he'd call me later to schedule another interview, and it would be best to keep my Friday afternoon open. On Thursday I hadn't heard back. I left messages that were never returned. I never heard from him again. I have nothing sketchy in my background or credit that would disqualify me from this (though I doubt he would have checked). It would have been perfectly acceptable to be rejected, I find it completely unacceptable to tell someone to wait for a call, to open up their availability on a day, and then ignore messages or never call back.

Inside Sales Professional Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Jacksonville, FL

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Financial Foundation Group in January 2013.

Interview Details – Had a phone interview, 1 on 1 interview, 2nd 1 on 1 interview. Took an online assessment test. Pulled credit report because you have to get licensed as a loan officer. Overall it was a pretty basic interview, nothing unusual. They were all very welcoming. Good experience. They were offering an hourly plus bonus until you get your license. Then the hourly goes up after you become a loan officer and then you get hourly plus commission. I was also told that once you become good you can get a much hire salary once you get established.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work here?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Seemed liked too much time on the phone hammering leads to get a sale. They have good leads but other companies are calling the same leads. I was worried that my frustration on getting a sale would eventually get the best of me.

Average Interview

Marketing Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Denver, CO

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Financial Foundation Group in August 2012.

Interview Details – A bit surprised that when I went in for an interview there were 16 other people there for a group interview. Then if you did well in the group interview they brought you back the next day for a smaller group interview and if they liked you, you were then taken back by a "director" to have a personal interview.

Interview Question – They do get a bit personal asking about your personal financial state, although I understand that they are a financial company and probably want to make sure you are not a thief. Just thought it was wierd to ask instead of just doing background check.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Not the right offer for me at the time. I actually did like the people and the potential that the company had to offer though.

Financial Professional/Management Trainee Interview

Anonymous Employee
Lone Tree, CO

I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Financial Foundation Group in December 2011.

Interview Details – Group Interview. Really built up the company. Hell of a sales pitch. Those who seem to make a good first impression will be asked back for a second for a 1 on 1. Kind of a litmus test to see if you will make a good salesperson… being confident and able to start up a conversation (networking). I was offered the position that evening after my 1 on 1, probably because I had 10+ years of sale experience. All the others hired were either recent college grads or had no sales experience.

Management Trainee: Executive In Training Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Loveland, CO

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Financial Foundation Group in March 2011.

Interview Details – They brought you all together in a room and presented a loafty presentation of expected goals and compensation packages.

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 5 years?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I decided to decline this offer after reading into the company and seeing all of the complaints posted about them. Also this job is 100 percent comission, who wants to have that pressure? Also if they don't invest in you they have no risk in hiring you.... you are just a cash cow for the company.

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Financial Foundation Group in February 2011.

Interview Details – They get everyone into a room and present them the company info. They make it sound like a normal 9 to 5 job but it's a glorified sales position where you must go out and create your own client base. If I knew this I would have rejected the offer.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, I paid $489 for training which was a waste since I quit in the middle of it.

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Financial Foundation Group.

Interview Details – I was called the day after I sent in my resume to come in for an interview, I appreciated the promptness. It was a two tier interview process. We were given a presentation of the company and then individual interviews. I was asked to come in the next day with 3 other applicants and we were treated to another presentation, and then another one-on-one interview. Overall it was a fairly easy interview process, if you are charismatic you will probably end up with a job offer. Good for experience, just not the right job for me!

Interview Question – The questions were standard interview questions. Would you be comfortable recruiting people? etc.   Answer Question
