    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (San Antonio, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was unorthodox because we started talking about salaries, compensation, and bonuses in my second interview, so that was definitely different. Apparently, he had not read my application and even asked me if I had applied for the position during the second interview. The third and last interview was over the phone which was different since the second interview was in person. Overall, it was a different interview process and for a moment I felt I was in the movie the Wolf of Wall Street.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at AXA Advisors in February 2017.

    Interview

    Went through a 3 step interview process. The first step was all about getting to know one another. I was asked basic questions about myself including a few situational questions. Step 2 involved more situation questions and an overview of what the job entailed. Step 3 involved creating a business plan which isn't hard to do. Make sure you have a financial advisor to speak to about developing this plan to make it easy. I went over the business plan with my interviewer and a few days later was offered the job. Things to note before interviewing with this company: You will pay for part of your licensing exams unlike other companies, there are a lot of costs to get into the business including paying for stationary, and you have a lot of control over your practice.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Fillmore, WI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very brief. It was more of the adviser explaining what their process is for new hires and comparing that to their competitors. Their plan is to start out by giving the applicant a broad view of the company and your role. Then as you advance further in the hiring process, they become more specific with what your role will be and how the company will help along the way.

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview

    I was a part of their "AXA Next" program at my university which described the industry and what I would be doing as a financial advisor for AXA. After completing the program I applied online and was contacted about an interview within a couple of days. The first interview was a basic phone screen with the manager asking about myself and why I wanted to join the industry and why they should hire me over anyone else. The second interview was with the same manager over the phone and computer going over the specifics regarding compensation, what my job duties would be, and a summary of the benefits they offer, etc. The third interview was with a panel of 3 people asking me again about myself, why I wanted to be a financial advisor, and why I wanted to work for AXA.
