Financial Advisor Interview

Financial Advisor
Minneapolis, MN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Thrivent Financial in July 2013.

Interview Details – Many interviews, lots of paperwork to fill out. What I find most interesting is the guy who was to be my manager, and who was for me being hired, hasn't had the courage to call me after his boss told him not to hire me. Really, that's the best you can do? How sad and unprofessional.

Interview Question – If you are going to do these many interviews in the first two weeks with us after boot camp, why didn't you do them with your other company?   View Answer
