Foresters Financial Lexington-Fayette, KY isn't hiring right now. Check out all Foresters Financial jobs
I have been working at Foresters Financial full-time (Less than a year)
First Investors’ has a very extensive training program and the upper management are very well educated in this field allowing you to easily succeed in this business. This representative position comes with a base pay salary starting out and commissions along the way which is not offered by most companies for this type of position. I love the atmosphere here in the office, everyone feels welcome and there is always someone available for questions and help, making it a very comfortable environment and the work day easier. I like having the ability to have a flexible schedule and plan around my day. This job is a lot of hard work and requires a lot of dedication and time but the outcome is well worth it.
Not having enough hours in the day, but turns out to be a positive thing in the long run because it makes you work that much harder to reach your goals.

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Foresters Financial (Lexington-Fayette, KY).
Interview process consisted of a phone screening by a recruiter, followed by two interview sessions. The two Interview sessions each began in a small group, were conducted by two different people, and I found that nearly all of the information provided was regurgitated during both interviews. Similarly, during the 1:1 portion of each interview session, I was re-asked the exact questions I had answered for the other interviewer during my first session.
Much of these sessions were spent listening to stories that highlight luxurious company trips that the managers attend, along with the top producing representatives within the country. To me, it seemed as if Foresters was trying to avoid disclosing actual information about the daily work of its representatives, and instead, shove trips to Vegas, Miami, Hawaii, and Spain, among others, down the interviewees throats in what I deem an attempt to distract from the actual work that will take place.
In interviewing for other positions moving forward, I hope to be given more information than "we have the best training in the industry," and less information regarding the vacations that upper management can enjoy with this company.
Overall, I just got the feeling that the hiring managers were very manipulative in their presentations, and demand more transparency and honesty before I devote myself to a company.
