    Interview

    Applied to the position through simplyhired.com. received a call which was your standard 30 min "walk me through your resume." Went into the office for the face-to-face interview which consisted of receiving a group presentation followed by the one-on-on interview with an advisor. Very behavioral.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty basic. Really just asked "Why financial advising?"   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Foresters Financial.

    Interview

    You are called in for a group interview where it is a round table discussion of the company's background. Depending on what you have put on the application you are called in for a second interview where you sit one on one with either the manager of the office or a current rep. The questions were very general and easy to answer. The third interview basically means you got the job and at that point you are just filling out the necessary paperwork to get hired.

    Submit application online, received phone call to set up phone interview, had phone interview, Scheduled and had two in person interviews with office manager about a week apart. All of this occured over about 3 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your current business plan? The manager wanted to know my marketing/prospecting plan. It also helps to know this question for practical purposes as this is what you will be doing for 80% of the first year, unless you already have a book of business.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Foresters Financial.

    Interview

    First Investors has a large presence on college campuses. They have changed some of their salary policies and now offer a base salary and pay for their employees to get their S7. Doesn't seem like a bad deal I am still considering this company.

    It is a three step interview process with plenty of time in between interviews. Not many tough questions more personalty based. They want to make sure you are competitive and dedicated because the position is a grind.

    Interview

    Nice group overview the first day. Explain the rough blue print pretty well. As is industry standard, be prepared to be offered a position that is eventually 100% commission with a paid training period. I believe they didn't always have paid training, which is nice.

    Interview Questions

    • Understand your basic/traditional interview skills....both verbal and non-verbal.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Foresters Financial.

    Interview

    You meet with a manager with 10 other potential employees. You watch a First Investors video they show to their clients. From there the manager asks a series of questions and goes around the room. From there you go to individual interviews with both the manager and assistant manager. after you leave, you wait for a call back for a final interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Very simple questions, they ask you how you think you can start your business and what group of people you plan on targeting. -- just say you have a lot of friends and family who you believe would benefit from the product they sell- Life insurance, Investments!   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The manager showed me how I was going to be compensated and what the quota looked like.

    Interview

    Received a call from a recruiter about 3 weeks after initial submission of online application. An interview was scheduled followed by a second interview with the department manager. Interview was extremely informative. Overall process from initial application to offer was about 6 weeks. Overall impression is that both the position and company itself has a lot of growth potential.
