    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Woodbridge, NJ) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Very straightforward. I went in to speak with the person in charge, and I was practically told immediately that I have the position. It was very easy to treat the interview like a regular conversation because they don't make themselves seem superior just because of their positions.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Cherry Hill, NJ).

    Interview

    The interview itself was split into 3 part- 1st part by Phone, 2nd part with the Divisional VP, 3rd part with Divisional VP and the President of the Divison. The phone interview is very simple, essentially the absolute basics of the position, the company, and your background. 2nd interview was face to face with the Divisional VP and it was a bit longer, with a very in depth power point about AXA as a whole and a few stats about the division itself. During this time your get in depth with your educational and professional background and you answer the "why you" question. Some technical questions added to the mix but nothing too complicated. At the end of this interview, you get 2 personality tests. 3rd interview was with Divisional VP and President, you go over the test results and again you answer in more depth now the "why you" questions. I applied specifically for the Karr Barth AXA Advisor position and the people who work there were very kind, understanding and caring. I had an additional 5 phone conversations with the Divisional VP in regards to what to expect, specific scheduling, and future plans.

    Financial Professional Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    The interview process seems to very from branch to branch. I interviewed for the Philadelphia area. The interview process itself was thorough and informative. But misleading. They make it seem like you will be making a lot of money but the base salary is something you would not even be able to live off of. There is potential for much more income, but that is after you struggle for a long time. They also wanted me to pay to get my licenses transferred and pay an appointment fee (?) which seems absolutely ridiculous. There is no health care coverage until after you bring in $5,000 or something along those lines. You don't get any pay until you pass your licenses and bring in that money. And you have to pay for your own licensing on top of that, which they say you will be "reimbursed" for later on. Naturally I declined because this is not a situation where you can thrive.

    Two weeks later I receive a LinkedIn message from a recruiter on behalf of the president (whom I had one interview with) from the same branch asking if I was interested in the same position I declined. It was a different person than I interviewed with originally and the email was clear that this was as if they were contacting me for the first time. Are they this disorganized that they cannot communicate to each other who was interviewed already or they cannot recall who they interviewed just two weeks ago? I was completely shocked by this.
    Just be aware of what this company is pulling you into if you choose to go with them.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewer was really nice, very polite I would say. I he briefly described me what I would be doing which turned out to be something that I would not want to do. I was looking for someone that would potentially sponsor me after a year but they do not sponsor anymore. Thus if you are looking to be sponsored for H1B in a year, do not bother to apply here. If you are a resident or citizen, i think you can get a job quite easily.
