    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    I applied online and then received an email with the FIAT exam and a behavioral exam. The FIAT exam consisted of about 25 questions about stock splits, Last in, Last out, first in, first out and questions about the economy. The next interview was over the phone. These questions were more personal- tell me about yourself and what groups or activities do you participate in that you could use to get clients. I had to fill out some documents for a background check. My next interview is going to be in person and I have to build a business plan.

    Interview Questions

    • FIAT - stock splits, Last in, Last out, first in, first out and questions about the economy. There is no time limit so take as much time as you need. They don't track how much time it took you, only what score you got.
      Phone Interview - tell me about yourself? What groups or activities do you participate in that could be used to get clients? Was the FIAT exam difficult for you? The interviewer has your FIAT scores. Why do you want to be a financial advisor? Why do you think you would be successful at this job? What got you interested in finance? Focus on highlighting any experience you have as an entreuprenur and sales experience. Do you have any questions for me?   Answer Question
