    Former Employee - Financial Services Representative in Minneapolis, MN

    I worked at Minneapolis Financial Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -friendly staff
    -nice office
    -all around great financial planning training
    -mentor assists new adviser on all new business
    -no cold calling

    Cons

    -commission pay only
    -Advisers are money-makers for the firm. Upper management could not care less about the individual.
    -long required phoning sessions
    -slow start
    -many expenses before you begin working (certifications, test material and other paperwork)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not bring on new associates unless you are certain they are able to make it in this tough business. It is a career that takes sometimes years to make any substantial money and kids out of college cannot typically afford this lifestyle. Also, be honest and tell people interviewing that it may be months before they make any money.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Minneapolis Financial Group in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    This is a 4-5 step interview process. Overall, it is a very relaxed environment. They look for someone that they would want to hang out with outside of the office. You do a behavioral assessment and then they see if you match up with their management team. You are interviewing to be entered into their training program in the spring/summer. By fall they have narrowed it down to just a few.

    Interview Questions
    • Never had a specific question that challenged you intellectually. It was all very subjective. They are hiring someone who is charismatic yet intimate.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Not the right career path for me. Chose corporate America instead.
