Interview Details – Not so much of an interview but an inquiry into your book of business. The recruiters will meet several times furnish breakfast, lunch or dinner and spend a considerable amount of time getting to know you. At the end of the day they want to know how much you will be able to transition to Wells from your existing firm. They require a minimum of $300k in trailing 12 revenue to be considered for hire with any type of transition package. The recruiters paint a rosey picture and are willing to schedule times for prospective advisors to visit operation centers around the country to get a closer look at how your business is supported as well as an inside look at the products and technology that is available which is frankly quite extensive. Honestly Wells is a solid firm with a great product offering. The FA position is a great opportunity for the right candidate.
Interview Question – Telll me about your current book of business. what is your trailing 12 and what type of business are you doing? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The corporate culture is considerably different from my current firm. Wells has considerably greater market share and the opportunity to earn more than I am currently making but at the expense of my work/life balance.
