    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at First Investors Corporation (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was called in for an interview with the director of HR. While waiting for her to come get me for the interview I had to fill out a 20 page application. Then I went into the director's office and we just chatted about my background and I was advised what the role consisted of. Then I had to take a critical thinking assessment. You answer 50 questions in 12 minutes so you won't answer them all. After that I waited in a separate room for about 20 mins, I was told I was waiting on the VP to interview with me as well but he was busy so they would schedule me another interview. I never heard back after that.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at First Investors Corporation (San Antonio, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call the next day about coming in for an interview. First interview was a group interview detailing the job and the company, followed by a quick 3 question one on one interview where I was told they wanted me to come in for a second interview the following day. The second interview was again a group interview/info session explaining more about the position, such as a typical week and how commissions/pay worked and then another one on one interview. In the first interview, I was asked to come up with a sales/marketing strategy for finding clients that I presented the next day.

    Interview

    The interview ended up being a group interview with three other applicants which was a surprise me. The whole interview was pretty much just a presentation about the company. It wasn't until the end of the presentation that we met one on one the managers but only for a short time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at First Investors Corporation (Columbus, OH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The first interview is more like a group overview of the company. It was a good way to learn about what the company is about and where you would fit if you were offered a position and accepted. The VP of Sales was super open about how he wanted the right fit and made it very easy to understand everything about the company. After the initial group overview the VP took both me and the other applicant for one-on-one interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • The first question was is you believed you'd be a good fit here.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed 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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at First Investors Corporation.

    Interview

    The process started with an interview on college campus. They catch everyone off guard by conducting a 'group interview' which I would consider more of a meeting. From there I had a one-on-one interview with the branch manager/vice president. From there I had one final interview (which started as another 'group interview/meeting' and then broke into individual interviews). I was offered the position the following day. The questions are very basic and easy to answer. The whole process is misleading in that you think it is one-on-one. They seem to talk up their company, and ask very rhetorical questions. I.e. "Wouldn't you have wanted to more money during college?" The other reviews are pretty spot on. The MOST misleading aspect was that they told me they provided salary. The base-pay salary is only during the training phase, and then it's 100% commissions. The base pay during training was minimum wage ($8/hour [starvation wages]) + commission (if you can make any). I took the job, but I continue to search for other positions. I was turned off by the company in general. The other reviews are dead on.
