Financial Advisor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (San Francisco, CA) in January 2016.

Interview

The interview process consisted of a phone call and two in person interviews. This industry has an incredibly high turnover rate because the training is intense and it takes a few years to cultivate your own leads and start functioning on your own. They are looking for people who are energetic, hard working, and want to commit themselves to this process. They will invest a lot of time in you so they want to make sure that you are worth it.

Interview Questions

  • Why do you want to work here?
    What are your best and worst qualities?
    Being that this industry has high turnover, do you/how do you see yourself pushing past the first few difficult years to get to the higher reward?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Philadelphia, PA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview, webinar, in person interview, and then a final interview with the VP of the branch. They were all very nice, but it seemed like they were trying to convince me more than I was trying to convince them. It was all behavioral. No technical questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview

    They pitched me the job instead of me pitching myself as a canidate. Would have been a red flag had I been older when I applied. I was told I'd be joining a successful FA Team and would be working primarily on managing existing relationships and prospecting through that book of business. What I actually ended up doing was getting a corporate directory and a phone cubicle.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through university and heard back couple of weeks later. Very relaxed group interview and low-pressure environment. There were 7-8 other candidates in the room, so there weren't too many opportunities to speak about yourself and stand out. Received rejection email about week after interview. Very friendly people at the office, and it was a pleasurable experience overall.

    Interview

    I applied through my campus and had a one on one interview with the assistant of the vice president of the office. I was asked basic questions about why I would be a good financial advisor. During the office visit, I met with more members of the staff and was asked what I knew about the company and my fears going into the position. All was a very relaxed setting.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call a few days later about setting up an interview. I had to take a personality test online. The first interview was very laid back. I really enjoyed the interviewer. He ended the interview by telling me how difficult it was to get started as a Financial Advisor and expressing his belief that it may not be the right time for me. There were other interviews after the first one, but we both decided that it would be a waste of my time and theirs. Though it did not end in a job, I really appreciated his honesty.

    Interview

    I was contacted immediately (the day after I submitted my resume) via email/phone. They scheduled me for a 10-minute preliminary interview. The recruiter was very nice and friendly. Overall the process went very smoothly, although the position was more sales oriented than what I was looking for. Therefore, I declined to pursue the job any further.
