Sales Associate-Promoter Interview

Sales Associate-Promoter
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at ING Direct in March 2009.

Interview Details – The process was very straight forward with no surprises, they let you know how everything is going to go before you arrive for the interview. They even disclose salary and expectations before interview. They have nothing to hide... You usually interview with 1 or 2 maanagers or coahes to see how well you interact with them and other associates. They want real people who are eager to learn and not set in their ways.

Interview Question – They did not have any unexpected questions except for the usuL "NAME a time you failed at something""   Answer Question

Financial Advisor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 days - interviewed at ING Direct in May 2012.

Interview Details – ING was looking for recent graduates to become financial advisor for there company. It's not what you all think. The job is all modern day cold calling. You have to find clients on your own and make them commit to ING. Most of these clients should be rich too, which would make it even harder for a 22 year old.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at ING Direct in March 2011.

Interview Details – The first step was a phone screen by a hiring manager in HR. She called me and asked some basic behavioral questions and asked me to go through my resume. She asked about the projects I have done in school and challenges I faced. The second step was an in office interview with 3 different managers on the App Services team. The interview took about 2 hours in total, and they asked a mix of behavioral and technical questions related to the job. Overall, I thought the interview was very manageable and definitely interesting.
