Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at ING (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.

Interview

Initial meeting was an information session, came back for an interview and didn't receive follow up. Whole interview process seemed a bit rushed. They basically want to know how many connections you have.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ING (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    The initial communication process was wonderful, the recruiters and schedulers seemed very wiling to work with the recruits. My initial interview was a phone-interview. That interview seemed to go smoothly and was granted an in-person interview. The interviewer seemed to be slightly pretentious and disingenuous. As soon as I was seated in the conference room, I realized that this may not be something that I was interested in.

    Interview Questions

    • This was not a question, but a portion of the interview. I had to compile a list of ten people who could be potential financial clients and then rank them according to their net-worth. I found that to be rather degrading and it was using the recruit for their connections, not skills.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Unpaid Training, Build your own clients, have to build your client base before license support, rather care-free environment even though they claim to care about your success. All the clients you sell in the beginning your trainer receives most of the commission.

    Reasons for Declining

    Commission only was not for me

    Applied online through a college job site, was contacted by a recruiter a few days later. Asked to come in to nearest location for an "interview" -- was a group information session.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ING (Jersey City, NJ).

    Interview

    Three rounds:
    1. Job overview -- given by VP to a group of 6 or so candidates
    2. 1-on-1 meeting with manager to discuss the opportunity in greater detail, ask about your goals and where you see yourself in the next 5 & 10 years
    3. Meeting with VP. Give a presentation answering why ING, why you, and what your natural market is

    Reasons for Declining

    The job has no base salary and no benefits. Also, during the licensing period there is no compensation whatsoever so it is not favorable for a recent college graduate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ING (Philadelphia, PA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The Process took a week. They brought in a group of about 15 recent college grads or people with a year of experience. It was pretty much a presentation about the company and position. I had just finished a year at a pretty reputable firm so this all seem liked a joke. They don't sponsor you for a series 7 (but they reimburse you if you pass), and you don't necessarily receive a salary either, all competitive.

    After the presentation the guy gave everyone a minute to decide if this was something of interest, about 70% of the people walked out.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult, they did not expect much of the candidates. Just were looking for fit.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at ING (Jersey City, NJ).

    Interview

    I got this interview through my university job board. I was brought in for a quick fit interview on campus that lasted around 20 minutes. The next step was a career preview/full interview with the Vice President of the Jersey City Branch. The career preview was a 2 hour presentation that hyped up the job. The next step was your typical one on one with the VP that was not difficult at all.

    Reasons for Declining

    It is not for ING, it was for the McAdam Financial group, which pays a fee to use the ING name. A quick Google search will tell you all you need to know about this company. Stay away.

    Interview

    Go in for an informational session and then you can sign up for an interview right after or come back if you are interested. This interview is with someone with a management position and if they like you they send you on a final interview with someone higher up. Really looking for someone with a good personality and that shows they can handle the work load.
