    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Not a very difficult process. The interesting portion is where they discuss how and when you will achieve your certifications, the pay & commission, and what is expected of you in the role. Make sure you pay attention and really understand this part well.

    The interview itself is about your prior sales/marketing experience, financial understanding, etc.

    I remember them asking you to "simulate" a client call and also taking a timed financial exam. Both of these are fairly simple to get through.

    Corporate Finance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rutgers, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Rutgers, NJ) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was offered an interview at a career fair for the following day. The interview was scheduled by email that afternoon and we met for two back to back 30 min interviews the following day with one Ameriprise hiring professional at each interview. The questions were entirely behavioral. Within a week I heard back and was invited to a second round interview at their headquarters which will occur in a month. The process is very competitive and behavioral/ personality based.

    Senior Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with HR and then an in person interview. The interview was over an hour and panel style with the hiring manger and another manager. They asked behavioral type questions, and a lot of them. After the interview they asked for my references and even called a few of them. I was expecting to get a job offer, instead the HR person emailed me and said they decided to hire an internal candidate. Who calls your references and then doesn’t give you an offer? My references had only good things to say about me so that was not the issue. A few weeks later, they called me to interview for another position. I did another phone interview with a different HR person. I was told I would be called back for an in person interview. After a week, I checked back with HR and was told I would hear something soon. However, I never heard back anything and after that never bothered to follow up again. I would not want to work for this company if they can’t even show respect to candidates by following up. Also the fact that they called my references and then did not make an offer was very annoying!

    They were very positive and made the company seem like a wonderful small business that I would love. They went through the benefits but did not harbor on why so many employees had quit recently or been terminated.

    Advisor Center Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    I met a recruiter from Ameriprise at a university career fair and she set me up with an interview. Overall, it was a pretty quick process. My interview went well, I was asked mostly behavioral based questions and I had to role play during a "phone call". Hopefully, it will go well. I've seen many negative reviews about the advisor center in Las Vegas, so I hope my experience is a positive one. Ameriprise sponsors the series 7 and 66 exams during my internship, which is a great opportunity.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    Applied online, received phone interview with HR within a week. I then was given two 30-minute interviews with the hiring manager and Director. Two days post interviews, I moved to the final round with the VP of the department. I was not selected for the position. All interviews were very behavioral based, which is normal for the company. It was also very conversational and easy in my opinion, until the interview with the VP.
