    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oxford, MS
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SunAmerica Financial Group (Oxford, MS) in December 2009.

    Interview

    Wa contacted by recruiter from a resume I posted on Monster. The initial interview was over the phone with this recruiter. We just basically covered my resume and background. The next interview was also over the phone with another member of the talent acquisition team. More in depth this time but still basic interview questions. Third interview was an initial meet and greet with the District Manager of the Territory I would be working in. Formal, but relaxed, more informational about the job, the territory, job expectations, etc. The final interview I had to bring a proposed business plan of how I would work the territory, bring in business, answer ind epth interview questions, also by this time all background tests had been passed.

    Interview Questions

    • Can't remember specific questions. Most were basic.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation on pay, standard package, great health benefits. Can negotiate on the size of the territory. Make sure you get as many active flowing accounts as possible with as many assets under management as possible and not get just the crap the other advisors want to pawn off on you.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at SunAmerica Financial Group (Houston, TX) in October 2008.

    Interview

    Don't expect it to be immediate. They have to make sure that you are desperate and willing to sell your soul before consideration. You would have an easier time in a sweat shop in Cambodia before wanting to work there.
