    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.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tallahassee, FL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Tallahassee, FL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Was approached during a career fair at my university and was later asked to attend an in person interview on campus. This company is extremely misleading in its practices; they make it sound like you will be a financial advisor assisting in the management of client assets. However it is honestly just another insurance salesman job based purely on commission with terrible compensation. I was told at the career fair that I would be compensating for receiving my licenses but by the second interview was told I would have to front the payment of my licensing as well as lease an office space to conduct my business... Not at all what I was told. This company does not conduct traditional interviews; they take this time to begin training you on their practices given their high turnover rate. I don’t recommend students to have any business with this company and I advice colleges and universities to no longer allow companies like AXA to prey on its students. After I was told that the starting salary of this company was bellow 24k annually I advised the interviewer that I no longer was interested. After which I received two emails requesting me to recommend some of my fellow students… eerily similar to a pyramid scheme… if you are a newly graduated student with little to no options, seek an employer which will take the time to get to know you and offer guidance not get you involved in a dying industry for their own personal gain.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at AXA Advisors (Bala Cynwyd, PA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    There were 3 steps, which included a phone interview, an in person interview, and a final interview. The people were very nice, and the interview followed up with a reference sheet for them to find more people they could hire. I got the impression that they hire as many people as they possibly can.
