Interview Details – Met a representative from ING at a university career fair, and signed up for a group info session. I then signed up for an interview with a sales manager who was really great and helpful answering my questions about the position. Was asked back for another interview with the VP of the area. Both interviews weren't bad, the first one was 45 min, and the second was shorter.

Financial Advisor Interview Interview

Financial Advisor Interview
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at ING in March 2014.

Interview Details – The first part of the process is a phone interview, but it is very casual and relaxed. I honestly thought she was just asking about my day, and I didn't even realize i was being interviewed. They asked me if I wanted to follow up to the group interview process. After reading all the other comments about the job on Glassdoor, I decided to decline the invitation since I am not interested in sales.

ING Financial Advisor Interview

ING Financial Advisor

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ING.

Interview Details – The whole process took 4 weeks. First, I applied through my college and was contacted within a week. They first asked me to attend an information session and following that signed me up for my first interview. After that, I got a call and was asked to meet with a VP. I got an offer over the phone a week later.

Interview Question – (In preparation for the VP interview): Are there at least 40 high net worth individuals in your network and how closely you are connected with them?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I understood that it was a largely commission based sales position. I was taking a great risk but what worried me was the deception and lack of information. They would not give me specific commission rates unless I accepted the offer, they would not answer specifically if there were any benefits. I did not even receive a traditional job offer document providing specific job details in writing. I made multiple attempts to get more information from them, they kept giving me a sales presentation without actually disclosing details. I would not accept an offer where I don't know all the details.
