    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Belleville, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Freedom 55 Financial (Belleville, NJ) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Lengthy - It moves over a three week period before you can be accepted for training. Each "Interview" is longer then the next. You can be eliminated at the end of it just before being hired, so it's a massive chunk of time. The initial contact was in the form of an email, an email that had grammar and spelling errors all over it, to the point that I took three weeks before I decided to actually respond.
