Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Melville, NY) in July 2016.

Interview

3 interviews, all three with the same people, a partner in the company and the person who you'd be working under. They don't tell you until the third interview, but you will need to develop your own client base. They ask you to bring in a list of 300 possible people and want a success rate of 10% of those individuals being your clients.

    The interview process was typical of what one would expect to see for this type of job. There was a phone screening. Then the prospective agent is sent the typical insurance sales aptitude test. Then the agent met with the hiring manager and had to pass a timed test. Then if everything is fine, they join the new team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Edison, NJ) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I am looking to renter the workforce and I attended a seminar for people looking to return to work. I contacted one of the speakers to ask about contacts for jobs in my area. She gave me the name of someone in my area. I then reached out directly to him and was able to set up an informational interview. There was a specific job opening but I was also going to learn about the company and opportunities there in general.

    Interview Questions

    • We had a good talk and since I am looking to return to the workforce after a gap, I have several jobs and positions so going through my history took some time. I wasn't sure that the job that was open would be a good fit but he also described some other positions that might be possibilities for me.

      He asked me what job or position I have had did I like best and which one did I dislike the most. I liked this question because it made me think about the various jobs I have had and what was it that I really liked. I described the job I liked best and what I liked about it.   Answer Question

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Boise, ID) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I scheduled a phone interview with them. The phone interview went well initially, until i was told what this position entailed. There is nothing about this position which deals with financial advice. You will be selling life insurance, and they will expect you to see to your friends and family first the exact words were "well wouldn't you want the people you love to be protected? and who better to sell to them than you!" That is not at all how the position was originally presented and was very disappointing.

    Following this interview I decided that no matter how much i needed a job, I did not want this one. That's when the phone calls started. I was getting a call every few days and they would not stop. Any company that is that desperate is doing something wrong. In addition to that the turnover rate is ridiculous.

    Steer clear of this company!!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview

    Very easy process. Did a phone interview, then came into their office for a panel interview with a current financial advisor with the company and a regional VP. After the previous two interviews, I was invited for a third interview which was basically the company convincing me why their company is a great place to start a financial advisor career.
