    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Woodbridge, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at AXA Equitable (Woodbridge, NJ) in March 2014.

    Interview

    It was made clear that this business isn't for everyone. You have to be a self starter and someone who can think outside the box to find clients - unless you have a large natural market- or you won't make it. My interviewer was pretty upfront about that and the fact that you would be sponsored for your licenses, but you have to have some savings to get started as you will pay out of pocket and be reimbursed if you make it through the required certifications. The potential to make a great living is there, but you will have to make it through a sink or swim process that could last 3-5 years, so make sure you are ready to dedicate yourself.

    Senior Manager Sales Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Equitable (Jersey City, NJ) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Great process found it on LinkedIn the recruiter actually responded to an Inmail to follow up my application. The recruiter works for AXA. I sent my resume to the line manager. It was a busy time of year the manager got back to me about with an email. I called him we set an appointment up for 3 days later, post interview I took a 10 minute personality test online. Casual but informative interview, they appreciated my skill set and level of experience. Looking for skills but also a cultural fit as well. They did not want to hire a difficult personality and I do not want to work with people like that myself. Two interviews in person, a call about one week later with an offer of interest, then dealing with the HR processes over email and the phone. I was on board about 5 weeks after the initial phone call to set up the first interview appointment.

    Interview Questions

    • No curve balls. They asked if I could return later in the same week if necessary to meet one other person.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They had a set target salary for this position it was in market range with a bonus structure no room to negotiate but they do spot bonuses nice perk!

    Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at AXA Equitable (New York, NY).

    Interview

    THE WORST EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD. Was called in from California for a final interview after a series of phone interviews. Spoke with hiring manager for 30-40 minutes, at which point I was told I was a phenomenal candidate and they would surely be extending me an offer for that coming summer. I left HQ and within five minutes received a phone call asking me to return upstairs, which I did. Upon returning, I was greeted by the senior Advisor in HQ, who then extended me a verbal offer of employment for that coming summer, which I said I would gladly accept, and explained how excited he was to have me on board, that I would be hearing from HR soon, etc. Here is the good part: I NEVER HEARD BACK FROM AXA. I sent a series of emails to everyone I spoke to, left a voicemail on both the hiring manager and senior advisor's direct office lines (they gave me their business cards) and sent hand written notes to three different people. I never heard back from anyone. This was by far the most confusing and disappointing interview experience I have ever had. I now work at BlackRock, and would recommend anyone steer clear of AXA.

    Management Rotational Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AXA Equitable (New York, NY) in April 2013.

    Interview

    First round over the phone, nothing really. Second round on campus, a guy insists on how analytical the job is. Third round in NYC and they just ask about how do i work on a team. 2 interviews and got kicked out. The thing to be aware is that they have you pay for travel, with their email saying that you will be reimbursed. I sent them the expenses a few days after the interview and more than week later haven't heard from them. I knew they were miser, but that surprised me.
