    Spring Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Latham, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (Latham, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Began with a simple review of the company and the market places along with the future goals for the internship program. Began as a group interview, as this was a team based internship, and moved onto a face to face interview. The entire process was roughly an hour.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (Silver Spring, MD) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a group discussion of company culture and goals, then broke off into 1:1 interviews with VP. Not a lot of information about the company given , and it seems as though they are hiding something from the applicants.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (Hartford, CT) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Had two group interviews and after the second one, we were taken individually and given offers. The group interviews laster about 2 hours each. They really exaggerate the pay potential of this job to the point where there must be some sorts of violation. They point out that in 5-10 years you will be making 600K a year in commission as long as you follow their plan.
