I have been working at Foresters Financial full-time (Less than a year)
I began my career at First Investors, in the Canonsburg office, in February 2014, and have been a representative in the field since May 2014. I knew this was the career for me from the time I was asked to come in for an interview. From what I’ve heard about the company and after viewing the website I couldn’t see how anyone could pass up an opportunity to work for this company. The day of my interview everyone I met was so welcoming and friendly, I was informed of the unlimited earning potential, the freedom to set your own schedule, and most importantly the chances to make an impact in clients’ lives. Once I began working, nothing changed. The management team and other reps remain helpful and friendly. Our saying is, “You’re In Business For Yourself – Not By Yourself.” Yes, you’re building your own business and developing your own clients, but you have the support and knowledge of everyone else in the company. To be successful in this company you have to be highly motivated and willing to put in the effort to receive the rewards. When you have the freedom to set your own schedule you have to remain dedicated and use the time you set aside for work to actually work. The financial service field is not an easy field to work in, but I believe First Investors provides amazing training, support, and opportunities to create a very achievable, rewarding career.
I do not have any cons. I believe if you leave First Investors it is not because of the company, but because you do not have the appropriate dedication.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (Canonsburg, PA) in March 2017.
This was easily the most ridiculous interview process I've ever experienced. I had three confirmation emails of my interview with the VP at 10 am. I never even saw that person. I took the morning off from my current job to go to this interview, which was 45 mins away, and I was thrown into a room of eight other candidates (I'm assuming) for what was nauseatingly reminiscent of a timeshare pitch I once accidentally fell into. It was even cuter when the presenter spoke to the room in an indescribably condescending manner (example: while describing the categories of the company's client base, she asked, after every category - retirees, families, self-employed, etc - if we knew anyone who fit that description. There were 12 categories. It was painful. 10/10 would NOT EVER recommend, not even to someone whose dream it was to become a financial advisor. Go somewhere else, buddy.
