    Financial Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (Boston, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I met with them at a career fair, and dropped off my resume. I promptly forgot about them. About a month later they called me and set up an interview. I arrived and was greeted with an hour-long presentation with a dozen other prospective employees in a room. After that there was a 2 minute interview that was pretty literally "Do you still want this job or not?"

    If you want this job and you have a 4 year degree in a vaguely relevant field, it is yours.

    You will pretty much have to sell to friends and family to get started. The training program is very good though. Overall, a lot of work with very little pay at first. They seemed friendly and supportive though.

    Pro: Easy interview, set your own schedule, great training program.
    Cons: Sell to friends and family to get started, long hours to be successful at first. Pay after the training program is 100% commission.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Pretty laid back. A few successful people from the company come in and tell you how it works. They have extensive but nice training. You pretty much sell a product.

    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

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    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.
