    They came to our school for the job fair, when I saw it, I thought I found a great company and all that. But later I realized and read it s just one of those pyramid schemes companies. They are asking questions about your credit card and stuff. Even though I made it through to 2nd interview I didn't go because I couldn't trust them when I went there first time. They are not professional at all.

    Financial Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Trilogy Financial Services in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    The first step in the process was an invitation to a group information session. They give you the basics about the company (and the position), and allow you to ask questions. Then you're ushered in (one by one) to a private room where an associate will ask you some standard screening questions. The second step is an interview with a branch's managing partner, and they'll ask some more in-depth questions about your education, work experience, and will go more in greater detail about what is expected in the position (as well as whether or not you agree to the terms of the job). During this point in the process they will also ask you a lot of questions to determine if you have a network of friends and family that might have money. The third step is an interview/job offer with the branch manager in which he/she will list out the job description, point by point, and ask you explicitly each time if you agree to the terms of the job. After that you begin the licensing process (if not licensed) which includes the Series 6, 63, and life insurance licenses. Once all the licenses are obtained you begin a two week Trilogy specific training program that goes over all the basic functions of the job. Once the two week training is completed you are officially hired on as a full-time, salaried employee.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me a lot of questions about family members, family friends, and acquaintances ... probing for information about what they did (in the sense they wanted to know how much money or influence they might have). In particular they were interested in my family members that were business owners, professionals (lawyers, doctors, etc ...), and the family friend that was a Superior Court judge.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They would not negotiate on the salary or compensation levels. In fact, they had a schedule of scaled increases in compensation based upon performance over a two-year period.
