The culture and the people. North Star focuses on establishing young professionals whom have a drive to help others and succeed in their personal and business lives. As a Financial Advisor, you must be willing to accept responsibility for your own actions and hold yourself accountable, even when no one is watching. North Star allows for the autonomy of the individual advisor and their practice, but provides the structure, mentor ship, and resources required to establish a sustainable, and attractive, financial advising practice.
Having the internal drive to succeed is a mandatory requirement to the firm, along with holding yourself accountable when others are not there. Being a Financial Advisor is a challenging career, and you will need (not required) to work long hours, often after everyone else has left the office, without the 'overtime' or gold sticker.
Advice to Management
Keep on the same direction, Ed Deutschlander is moving in the right direction!
I applied online. I interviewed at North Star Resource Group (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2017.
I submitted my resume online and was contacted via email about setting up a phone screening. I had a call where they asked basic background and what I was looking for in my career. The phone call ended with them requesting assessments to be completed online. This was a road block: if the assessments were good, I moved on. If they were bad, it was over. The assessments were acceptable and I was asked to set up an in-person. They gave me videos to watch and react to to bring to the meeting. I met with a recruiting member and had a good conversation. They followed up for a second in-person interview. I came in a week or so later and spoke with the national director of recruiting and development. The purpose of this meeting was to answer lingering questions and "scare me" about the position. This went well and the HR director told me that he would call me with a "final project". This happened on April 13th and it is now May 17th and I have not heard a word from them. I have followed up three times but have not gotten a single response. They completed ghosted me. Very unprofessional manner to do business. If they decided not to proceed, fine, but give some notice and don't make empty promises. Not trustworthy in my opinion for a company that claims to put a focus on the people of the community.
