Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university – interviewed at First Investors Corporation.

Interview

Submitted an application online Heard back in 2 weeks Came in for group interview which is not much of an interview. They pitch you on the company the whole time, ask about your involvements and what makes you qualified Interview lasted about an hour and a half. Met one on one with a manager for a 5 minute meeting after the group interview/info session. Got invited back after 3 basic qualification questions. Second interview was easy. Offered me the position within 15 minutes. Never had any curveballs. Really nice people interviewing!

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at First Investors Corporation (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    Great process. Starts with a phone interview followed by a one-on-one interview at the local branch. Pending a good first interview and a well-written business plan, a second "social" interview with a person that is close to you follows as a second interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at First Investors Corporation (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Initial interview is as a group. The top few applicants will be called back for a 2nd interview 1-on-1 with the manager or assistant manager. The top person will be offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked ethics related questions and why I thought I'd be right for the job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You are hired as an independent contractor which means there is no salary so there is no negotiation about time off or pay. Legally you could probably take as much time off as you want, but you won't set appointments which means you won't make any money.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at First Investors Corporation (Denver, CO) in March 2010.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of a manager making a presentation for about an hour and then you are taken out 1 by 1 to get interviewed by a manager from the office. They ask questions about why you feel like you would be a good fit but this part lasts only a few minutes and then I was offered a second interview. I returned the next day and went through a similar process. I learned that I needed to pay almost $800 to get licensed and that the pay was 100% commission. Not a good situation for everyone and I was looking for a benefit package because I would be graduating college. Ultimately, not a difficult interview and they are looking for takers on a pretty difficult setup for a first career.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at First Investors Corporation in November 2010.

    Interview

    Interview went well, 3 step process. If you are forward and want to help people you should do fine. My only concern is that I felt like the company was trying to sell you more on the job than you are selling yourself to them. Overall seems like a decent company.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at First Investors Corporation in February 2009.

    Interview

    First we started in a group where we gained an overall understanding of First Investors as a company and of the job. They gave us a little background about the company, and also gave us a pretty thorough run down of what it would be like to be a financial rep (what a normal work day would be like, advancement opportunities, etc.). Then we broke off in to one-on-ones with the interviewers who then basically held a typical interview with pretty typical questions for an interview.
