Financial Advisor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boca Raton, FL

Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Primerica (Boca Raton, FL) in January 2017.

Interview

I was called by the head of the branch at Congress telling me that he saw my resume online and believed i am a good fit and invited me to come in to discuss my options with him. We agreed on a time and date, when i got there i was told to fill out a pre screen interview form then directed to a conference room with others waiting. It turns out to be a presentation on the company and how you can be a part of it by "owning you own business". This screams multi level marketing from all angles and when i questioned it i was told its different. It was not, you are 100% responsible for your earning and benefits. Not for me, i can think of other business to start on my own than to join this one with recurring monthly fee. I wasn't interested and others walked away too.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Primerica (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Deceiving. I was asked to come for a job about Financial Advisor, but this was just about selling Life insurance and recruit others for Multilevel Marketing. They should be more honest

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Primerica (Dallas, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter. Met at their offices with a Financial Advisor. Was asked several easy questions about my resume, as well as my goals for the future. Given a brief spiel about the company and offered a job on the spot. I ultimately turned it down due to 100% commission (was mislead on that by the recruiter)

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Primerica (Saint Cloud, MN) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very professional and very straight forward. After interviewing with several other companies in the financial services industry. I knew Primerica was unlike any other company in the financial services industry hence why they are the largest financial services organization in North America. I knew what they were doing was 100% right as they really just are teaching families and individuals basic principles and strategies like the rule of 72 which no other company is doing! After the interview concluded, I already knew that I didn't want to work for any other company!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Primerica (West Chester, OH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    First they give a presentation to all potential interviewees. Afterwards, they ask for referrals for whom ask to call to come in. Then they do a brief interview, with very superficial questions. They have you come in another day for a second interview, but really again, it's more informational and less an actual interview. They have two people speak with you.

    It's not a pyramid scheme, but it feels like one. I would avoid at all costs.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Primerica (San Antonio, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Personal questions regarding abilities. Not too complicated. Very polite and professional. I was contacted by phone to verify my availability for a person to person interview. The interview was scheduled for my convenience. During the person to person interview I was asked several questions regarding my abilities to deal with people and some experiences with that. After that, I was referred to the office manager. She gave me a very good overview of the Company and what it does. She also gave me a presentation on what a Financial Advisor is and what kind of job it does. Very good one. I was given time to ask questions. They were adequately answered. Very good interviewing process.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Primerica.

    Interview

    The interview is a complete joke. Everything you say will be praised because they will hire anyone. They will tell you about the limitless opportunities while hiding the fact that they hire anyone and most people are not successful.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Primerica (Lancaster, PA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I met someone from primerica at a job fair. I had already been interning for a company as a financial advisor. His interest in me became apparent as i had already told him that i was licensed. I went to his office and he had a powerpoint on his ipad. He asked a few general questions about me, but spent most of the time trying to tell me about the good parts of the company. He then showed me how the compensation works, and told me that once i reach a certain level, that i would make 110% on commissions. I found that hard to believe, and i said that i didn't think that was possible. His response was rather nervous and vague, and i dont specifically remember what he said.

    Anyway, it really wasn't much of an interview, but really a sales pitch on joining the company. It reminded me of Amway because of the similar powerpoint, payout structure, and tales of people that made it big in the business.

    Interview Questions

    • Really a sales pitch: If i were to show you that it is possible to do this part time, would you be interested in learning more?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Clearly this business has potential for SOME, but not MANY or ALL. Simplifying this business model to a pyramid scheme is unfair, but not completely inaccurate. I felt like i was being sold something, and that caused me to decline.
