    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Syracuse, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    They really take their time to vet candidates. The interview is in 5 stages. Everything from a one on one phone discussion to panel interview with senior management. Compared to other firms I interviewed with, AXA was the only one that was truly trying to determine in they wanted to make an investment in me. They were not chomping at the bits to add another advisor to their production sheets. They only want quality standouts. Very in-depth interview process!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Austin, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I went through three interviews - the first one was over the phone and the last two were in person at their office. Very welcoming environment. I knew about Axa because a colleague interned there the summer before and then accepted for a full-time position. I had no idea how recognized this company was until after I was offered a job as they were ranked number 3 as one of the world's largest insurers on Forbes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Milwaukee, WI).

    Interview

    4 rounds, meeting with manager, they make it confusing to keep you interested and not realize it's a scam. TAKE EVERYTHING WITH A GRAIN OF SALT AND DO NOT TRUST THEM. Dont get excited because it's a first job or seems lucrative.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview wasn't necessarily laid back but more of a conversation to get to know each other and understand if it is a job you would like to get into as well as showing the employer you would be up to it as well. Waiting for future interviews to come soon.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Boston, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The initial interview was at a college career fair that I applied to through my university. It was very conversational and relaxed. The interviewer just wanted to get to know who I am as a person and what drives me. After the interview I was told they would be in contact to get me in for a second interview on site. Didn't hear back for a few weeks to find out I didn't get the second interview.

    Interview

    After initially applying I was contacted by an office secretary. First was a phone screening where you are told a little more information about the industry, and then are asked to attend a webinar. After the webinar the next step is an in office interview where you are told much more about the company and the industry as a whole. This is to see if you think the position will be a good fit for you. This interview is very laid-back and conversational. The last interview is in a main office with a high manager and the original financial planner. In this interview you will talk with and get to know the manager where he is basically looking to see if you are serious about the job and if you are a conversational person. They will also go over the results from you personality test and then may or may not give you an offer on the spot.

Pros: “Great work environment. Excellent office, management is superb. They really make you want to drink the kool-aid and it sounds perfect on paper. Also, provides you with the licenses you need...”“Great work environment. Excellent office, management is superb. They really make you want to drink the kool-aid and it sounds perfect on paper. Also, provides you with the licenses you need to go do something else. Really excellent leadership and if you succeed its a path to early retirement. Some high-level producers make upwards of over a million per year and don't work nearly as much as other people making the same. It really does show promise as a career and those who make it do really well in it. If you don't have a job out of college and you're out of options this is a great place to start. Especially if you want a series 7 license.” – Full Review
