    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Modern Woodmen (Kalamazoo, MI) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Very long interview process. Modern Woodmen is a very selective company. Interview consists of one on ones, market surveys, project list, trial appointments, internet testing, background checks, credit checks, buisness lunches and more. It was a very fustrating time because I felt like I was being strung along but in the end I feel it helped to prepare me for my career at Modern Woodmen.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Modern Woodmen (Austin, TX) in January 2009.

    Interview

    There is an Initial Interview where they ask you about your history, family, work ethics, and entrepreneurial spirit. I felt like it was more like a conversation than an interview. You then do an online assessment to see if you can pass state and FINRA licensing exams. You then have an In-depth interview where they go over the compesation structure and go more into depth about your backgroud and what you want out of a career. Next, you will have an assossiate interview where you get to talk with one of their senior advisors. Following that, a VIP meeting is set up so they can answer any questions your spouse or whoever will support you might have. This was very nice because it made me feel like they really wanted to make sure our family fit the companies cultureand expectations. We then moved into a final interview and then my preliminary training began. Very thourough but I like that they are very selective.

It also helps to be able to put together a list of names/contacts so that you can get your business off the ground. This will

    Negotiation

    They tailored my 'base' salary according to my needs, but it means that (in order to stay contracted) you must sell enough life insurance to provide for your own base (or at least close to it).
