    Went in to a career fair, handed in my resume, and was contacted a few days later to come in for an "interview." It was just a meeting with other potential interns to talk about the company and what it does.

    I interviewed online - interviewed at First Investors Corporation.

    Interview Details

    You are called in for a group interview where it is a round table discussion of the company's background. Depending on what you have put on the application you are called in for a second interview where you sit one on one with either the manager of the office or a current rep. The questions were very general and easy to answer. The third interview basically means you got the job and at that point you are just filling out the necessary paperwork to get hired.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at First Investors Corporation in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone screen to determine if you have a pulse. Second phone screen with regional director to rehash weather or not you have a pulse and then an in office interview with the managing director....a sales pitch on how wonderful the company is because it carries no debt. While the phone screeners are explicit that industry experience is a plus, the office directors clearly frown on those with industry knowledge.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at First Investors Corporation in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    They didn't ask a lot of questions from me. They spent a lot of time during the two day interviewing processes explaining their company and their goals. Don't need any prior knowledge of the industry going in, just need to be personal.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very easy. It started with a recruiter talking about their company and it seems as if he was trying to sell you on the job. Everyone from the first round was passed onto the second round. This job was all commission base and I decline as a result.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process consisted of 2 interviews, both were done in a group. The first interview one of the managers came in and put on a short video explaining what the company does and its values, beliefs, etc. Next, the 2 different types of internships they offer were broken down, explaining what would be required of us if we were hired. Then, the group was informed that everyone still interested was invited back for a 2nd interview. During the second interview we were asked questions like where we go to school and why we'd be an asset to the company. Upon leaving the 2nd interview an offer was made.
