    First, phone call from the recruiter and then sat in a group setting to hear about the company and then did one on ones with manager. The group setting was very informative about the training and what the company had to offer.

    Application

    I interviewed at Foresters Financial (Saint Petersburg, FL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Invited to a group interview after talking to a recruiter at a careers fair. The interview itself was in fact more of a sales pitch about the company.

    We were told about the charity work the company does, and were told that we had all displayed the sort of skills required to work in the industry. In truth, I think this was a little disingenuous and that in reality they will take on many recruits expecting most to fail after a few months. However, this is a reality for the life insurance market as a whole and not simply this company.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Foresters Financial.

    Interview

    They set up your appointment time and it's a cattle call interview. There were 5 other people there and they go through a scripted hour long presentation where they talk up their company. After the presentation they interview you one on one. It's basically a sales position where you sell life insurance, not a financial position. You don't even need a background in finance or accounting. Overall not what it is made out to be, you don't give financial advice despite being called an "advisor".

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (Addison, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was fairly quick and straight forward. I got a completely different impression about the position upon the interview. Recent graduates, be careful taking a position like this.

    Financial Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (Houston, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Went in for 2 separate interviews a week apart, which I had to drive 3 hours to get to and 3 hours back. Each interview lasted about 45 minutes. The manager "soft" offered me the job, which I accepted, but had to take an assessment which I took more than willingly. Then for 2 weeks failed to contact me after multiple emails from me about whether the offer still stood or not. During this time, I declined 3 different interview opportunities because I thought I already had a job. The manager did not contact me until the day before my supposed start date to tell me that I was "no longer wished to continue my candidacy". Overall, it is a mismanaged organization that does not care about its candidates

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (Woburn, MA).

    Interview

    Avoid this place. Started off with a group interview where a sleazy sales person tried to convince us why the company is so great and why we should be selling to our close friends and family members. Only take this offer if you want to ruin relationships with close acquaintances by selling horrible product. Did not bother showing up for second round of interviews.
