    Set your own schedule and you get paid for your results. This is not the place to hide behind your computer screen. Nearly 100% commission which for those of us who build great relationships and deliver results to our clients means handsome compensation. The non-tangible income you receive from helping people retire, send their kids to college or protect them in event of disability or death is priceless. Clients really appreciate what you do.


    You must work 60 hour weeks for your first 3-5 years to build a practice. From what I see most people are not willing to put in this time and not earn much commission. Must make short term sacrifices for long term returns.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors.


    One on one interview with VP. The interviewer was very personable. Straightforward questions about why you want to be an adviser and why you will be successful. Beware, a lot of hidden costs they do not spell out to you. Ask questions. You earn the highest commissions on insurance products. They say they will not push these insurance products on your clients... Doubtful. They are salesmen, selling their company to you. Keep that in mind.
