Financial Consultant Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Investors Group (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2016.

Interview

I got the interview invitation from the staffing agency. After around 3 days, I was asked to go to their office and have an interview with their consultant. I think I may skip the first round interview which is a presentation from their staff to introduce their company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Investors Group (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interviewer tells you that he does not want to waste his time if you are not able to have a network of 200 people in a month. He tries to discourage you and wants to see whether you give up or keep continue. The first interview is mostly based on what they do and how they make money. He explains that you won't be able to make money in the first couple month. So, if you are not discouraged at the end of the interview you have a chance.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Investors Group (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    After the initial assessment, I had an Interview which takes almost 1 hour and I was the listener for most of the time! I asked questions about the income & process of finding the clients and the interviewer was explaining for me for almost 1 hour!
    I think it's a good opportunity but not for me because it's 100% commission and at the moment I cannot afford to live on commission!

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Investors Group (Vaughan, ON (Canada)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    It was a 3 step process of hiring. The first round was scheduled in a group where all the applicants were shown a Presentation and given a background about Investors group and their work opportunity which involves clearing few licenses, undergoing a paid training and then working on incentive basis. n After the presentation, we were asked to get back to them on email if we had interest in working as their Business partners. The second step was to appear for an online Personality Test to assess our suitability. The third step was a personal interview with the Regional Head. I felt very comfortable during the interview and did feel positive about the whole experience.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Investors Group in June 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by email. I was required to fill out a personality assessment prior to coming in - took about half an hour. Once coming the day of the first of three interviews, was asked to fill out qualifying interview questions (written, thank God). This took 15 mins. After this point was the actual interview was really only one question, and him explaining the position. I anticipate the second interview to be more questions.

    Interview

    The HR is late for almost 20 minutes. However, I didn't hear any apology from him.

    Also, HR manager's expectations are quite different than what the speaker of career section has told us. Thus, I feel it's lack of the consistency.
