I worked at Invest Financial full-time (More than 10 years)
Location of corporate office is located in Tampa, Fl.
Employees are very caring. Very professional staff.
Offers get training programs and benefits.
Did not have a bad experience the this company.
Can not post any cons. Wish they had more work from home positions.
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Invest Financial (Jackson, TN) in August 2013.
It first started with one interview by the Sales Assistant I would have replaced. The interview was very laid back and included standard behavioral questions. A few hours after I returned home, I got a call from the Sales Assistant again. She wanted me to come in the next day to be interviewed by her boss (the financial adviser). I returned the next day for another interview with her boss. He had a friend to stop by in his office who also stayed and listened in on the interview. This interview included more behavioral questions but no discussions of compensation/benefits were involved at this point. I was asked to return the following Monday to sit in on the job and to see if I liked it. That Monday the Sales Assistant "tried" showing me how to do the job but was unsuccessful. She had all the forms scattered all over the desk and didn't know what was what. There was financial lingo I didn't understand. A few clients come in throughout the day, and the Sales Assistant didn't have time to show me everything. The next day they had another lady come sit in on the job. The other lady ended up getting the job because I told the Sales Assistant the job was too stressful to not receive benefits and proper compensation.
Reasons for Declining
No benefits were offered. Compensation was not enough to pay for the gas needed to get there and back. The job was too stressful and not worth the pay.
