Associate Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at World Financial Group in January 2013.
Interview Details – I was asked by one of my friends to tag along as she was meeting up a friend who contacted her many times about if she had any interest in making extra money on the side. We were given an address with suite number to an old office building in local business plaza. It was unexpected that an interview was going to take place as we were in our casual clothes.
When we arrived, friend was dressed in business attire and greeted us with introduction to the CEO. The suite contains multiple offices with old office furniture, and scene that everybody was out. We were then taken to a conference room in the back of the suite. The interview started with the CEO asking if we knew the reason of today's appointment and how much information had our friend briefed us on.
1. CEO started asking us some background questions then followed by his introduction leading to a presentation.
2. The presentation started off with market demand and supply condition.
3. It moved on to an information session about company history and mission.
4. We were asked if we would like to learn more about business or financial part of the business.
5. We chose to learn more about the business that led to information on multi-level-marketing (MLM) business model, general calculation of compensation, and methods of running the business. Assuming that if we had chosen the financial part that it would led to different proceeding.
6. Type of support programs and initiation cost of enrollment to the business.
We had asked a lot of questions in between and at the end expressing interest. Therefore, upon the end of the interview, the CEO brought out a one page application form for enrollment. It took us by surprise as we thought this was just an informative meeting.

Associate Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at World Financial Group.
Interview Details – A lady (an associate of World Financial Group) approached me while I was at my doctor's office waiting for my appointment. She was apparently waiting for an appointment as well. She heard me talking on the phone and then complimented me on how well I spoke English. She asked me where I worked and what I do. Being friendly, I told her. She then asked for my number. I thought she wanted English lessons or to be friends or something - I was too stupid to not question why she wanted my phone number - so I gave it to her. She then asked me all these questions like where I live (I didn't tell her where, exactly) and if I want to come to a company meeting that night (I didn't say yes).
She said she's hiring and at that job, I could earn as much money as I wanted and I wouldn't be selling anything. She said she didn't want to tell me so much since others could be listening in the doctor's office. She said she would tell me more over the phone later that night.
I thought her approach to me was suspicious and unprofessional considering that it was a job opportunity so I asked her what the company name was and she said TransAmerica. She said it's based in San Francisco in a big, tall building and they have many offices all over the world. I told her I was not interested that type of work or that opportunity several times. She didn't seem to get the message as she kept telling me I could earn a lot of money. She gave me her business card and it said World Financial Group on it. It had the Chicago office address and the Georgia headquarters office on it.
I was then called for my doctor's appointment and while I was in the private room waiting for the nurse, I looked up the company information. It looked fishy so I decided to block her number on my phone and I planned to tell her clearly that I wasn't interested in the job opportunity and that she didn't have to call me later when I saw her again in the doctor's office lobby area. Well, I came back out and she was gone (maybe to her own appointment or left the doctor's office). She called me later in the evening but I blocked her call several hours earlier so it went straight to voicemail and she didn't leave any voicemail. I haven't had any contact with her since and I hope she doesn't contact me any more.

Financial Planner Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at World Financial Group in November 2008.
Interview Details – Pretty much a multi level marketing company in which you recruit as many people as possible while paying for our own tuition to obtain insurance licenses. There is no base salary, everything is based off commission from selling insurance products after you are licensed. Do not work for this company, they are essentially a scam.
Interview Question – Are you sure you want to work as an unpaid financial representative? Answer Question

Financial Adviser Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at World Financial Group.
Interview Details – Asked to interview by a former PFS RVP. Met at the office. Very professional environment. The position involves a pay-in of $100. These multi-level-marketing opportunities always involve first getting recruited, paying some sort of fee to come aboard, then working your tail off as the "low many on the totem pole" for quite a long time to reap some type of success that is also dependent upon not only your personal sales volume, but recruitement too.
Interview Question – The most difficult question is when you're asked to make the financial investment without a guaranteed return. View Answer
Senior Marketing Director Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at World Financial Group in June 2010.
Interview Details – I was asked by a family member to check out this place as a potential internship destination which could eventually result in a full time job. I met Mr. Vy in person and was told to come by at around closing time for a meet and greet with other senior partners working at World Financial Group. In the end, there was no real interview and I was asked to come by the next Monday and start performing administrative duties.
Interview Question – What do you think about our company and life insurance underwriting as a whole? You know all the negative things about our company on the internet? There's simply no basis. I hope you didn't take them seriously? View Answer
Reason for Declining – I was not willing to work the hours they were providing due to my coursework. They told me that the scheduling would be flexible but they failed to offer this to me.
