    Financial Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Foresters Financial.

    Interview

    When I was going through the interview process everyone was very positive and responsive. I was pleasantly surprised by how smoothly the process went. However, once I was offered he job I told the recruiter I needed time to think and they were very negative about that and stopped responding to my questions and inquiries. They showed me that their recruiters are very fake and do not genuinely care which was one of their main selling points. I did not want to be just a statistic in their organization so I decided to hold out for a genuine offer. Proceed with caution and stay on your guard if you decide to pursue a job with Foresters

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (New York, NY).

    Interview

    You sit down in a room with the other potential candidates. Then the hiring manager comes in and explains the company for about an hour in a powerpoint presentation. After the presentation, they take each candidate individually for a one-on-one interview. The one-on-one was about 15 minutes overall, extremely short. Overall fairly straight forward interview.

    Financial Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (Tampa, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The first part of the process was walking in and doing a group interview sort of thing. Where we learned about the company background and what they were looking for. Than we met for a couple questions face-to-face. Not much time to individually get to know each applicant. Not too impressed with this process as an "interview."

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (Edina, MN) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Just did the first interview, basically was an hour long presentation about why they are awesome and successful. Then was asked about 5 typical interview questions. It was informative, but left me unsure as to what the position all entailed. Seemed like they were trying really hard to make it sound better than it is.
