Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at First Investors Corporation.

Interview

One group interview to start, then you are offered a "final round" interview. I asked if everyone was accepted to the final round, and they admitted that almost everyone was. I went to final round interviews and they had an hour or more long info session, along with three interview questions asked throughout.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at First Investors Corporation (San Francisco, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Got called up a day before to come in for a group interview. Pretty standard; listened to a description about the the company for about 40-50 minutes, then split off and had one-on-ones. Asked me to come back the next day with some marketing strategies.

    Came back for a second interview the next day. Same deal except less people in the initial presentation. This is where they went into more detail about how the position was structured and how you would be making commissions. Followed by another one-on-one. Whole process about an hour and half.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at First Investors Corporation (Richmond, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Hour long interview, talked with my would-be manager. I traveled 3 hours to present myself and the manager didn't know I was coming. It simply seemed like an average company to work for simply by the presentation to myself. Job was filled with long hours, and an absurdly low base pay. Wasn't the right fit for me.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at First Investors Corporation (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Met the office manager and a representative at a career fair for my school. Based on my experience and ability to communicate well I was contacted to interview at the office. The first round was about an hour of reviewing the company and basically developing a positive image in your mind about them, a half hour of a group interview and about a half hour of one on one interviews. The company overview basically reviews their history, what they do, and how much they care about integrity, when in turn the basis of their business could be seen as aggressive and tactical. There were a few other people in the room and we were asked questions about our personality to which we all answered one by one, probably to prove how you can communicate with others watching you. Then there was a one on one interview with a rep, where they talk about your work experience and how the lessons learned there can apply to what is required at FI. The second round was structured the exact same way but with different people, and instead of a company overview they went over how you were compensated, which for anyone can be a deal breaker as pay is extremely low, to the point of near poverty until you are able to build a client base. What I got was that the fear of poverty and not being able to eat or afford living is your initial motivation to go out and make deals in the first 9 months.

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at First Investors Corporation.

    Interview

    Received a phone call for an interview of which I do not recall applying for, but with the "I need a job , any job jitters" I agreed to an interview. Like everyone else described I was told to come in the following Tuesday for a group interview. After reading up on the company and position I opted out of the gig because with a new born I would not be able to commit the time required especially to a position I had no passion for (finance). Not to mention I did not have the money required to pay down on a licence for a position I have no interest in (finance)
