Regular interviewing process, but prior to a formal offer they want you to prospect a list of 100 people you personally know. Use this information as you will. Seems like most financial services companies are like this.

It was honest and straight forward. Great company. I would recommend seeing who runs the office and what they're all about. This would be my best advice for you. I hope that helps you in your path to a career you love and enjoy. Unlimited upside which is really nice. Hardest job on the planet though.
