    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (San Francisco, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I went in the San Fransisco office and had a difficult time finding parking as expected. The building is in the heart of the financial district. The interview process felt super professional. Went in and I let the desk lady know I arrived and had to wait 10 minutes for the VP to arrive. He asked me about my current experience and informed me more about the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Sent in my resume, and received a call in a day to arrange an interview.
    Arranged a meeting with a senior executive located in the Koreatown.
    Since I did not have an enthusiasm toward sales, I wasn't offered the position.
    It appears very important to show that you are willing to do anything as a consultant.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview arranged twice through email. For the first arrangement, the interviewer thought I was going into the office in person even though they email me saying it will be a phone interview. For the second interview, they wrote down the wrong phone number so I emailed back correcting them.
    The interviewer sounds impatient and aggressive. I was feeling uncomfortable. The interview ended earlier than 30 mins.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Vestal, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Got a first round interview invitation through campus career job site. Went to an on-site interview then a virtual interview with two managers. The process took about 3 weeks to complete. However I lost the interest in this position because it's essentially a sales job that consists a large amount of cold calling and knocking on doors. After a period of time you have to pay for your own cubical.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview

    Had one early on introductory phone call with a manager, not sure if this was standard or if it was because we were alumni from the same school. Then had two phone interviews with the same manager a week apart. Final round interview was in the office with the same manager and a divisional vice president.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview

    The interview process was very welcoming. First they bring you in to speak with one of the senior advisors. The senior advisor then allows you to guide the conversation, expecting you to have a good number of questions prepared. The interview lasted about an hour. The regional senior-VP conducts the second interview in a similar manner to the first. Very conversational, not technical at all whatsoever.
