    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (Indianapolis, IN).

    The interview was a group process and was not much of an interview at all. The recruiter gave more of a presentation and gave us questions to answer afterwards and email to him.

    Financial Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Sent my resume, the next day got called to schedule an in-person interview. The interview was mainly informative and there were 3 other people with me. Got a long spiel (2 hrs) about how great it is to work for Foresters, how its actually awesome to work on 100% commission, etc. Then had a short face to face interview and was asked to return for another. Came back the next day, and they had ANOTHER 2 hr long group presentation. By the time I was called in for my face to face interview, I simply thanked them and told them that it wasn't a good fit. The leader of the interview was a good saleswoman, and she was clearly trying to sell us this job, glamorizing it and not going over any issues an employee might have in the 4 hrs she talked to us about it, so I was sketched out.
