    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Originally, I was told the interview process was in three parts but it was abbreviated to two. My point of contact was a mentor that I would work with, if I was to join the firm. Meeting first with my potential mentor and an intern, I then met again with my mentor and the marketing specialist. My third meeting was to be with branch management, but that was eliminated to expedite the process.

    Interview Details

    Who in your family or friends has money? If none, how good are you at cold calling and being an entrepreneur. The interview was really more of management selling me on why I should work there.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications were by phone and email and I scheduled an interview in early January. The first interview was kind of a screening to make sure that you are well-dressed and gives you an overview of the position. They asked some questions related to work ethic, what I knew about sales, and what I thought of the position. They explained the broad aspects of the position and gave me a background check form that they would review before I was called in again.

    The second interview was more in-depth and they explained the training process, support structure, contract options, and the onboarding process.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions, but they want to know that you have the potential to succeed in a role based mostly on commission.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    This particular office gave me the feeling of a pyramid scheme and that I would not reap the total benefits of my work.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview Details

    Saw my resume through a networking site, and they reached out to me after. Got an interview a few days after applying. The interview was very basic, more of a conversation. Compensation package is a bit odd, so they talked about that a bit. Have to be convincing that you can start your own business.

    They came through my school initially. Interview went great, just basic behavioral questions. When I went to their office, it was more in depth. Generally behavioral throughout the process.

    Interview Details

    the worst interview that I have been through, they will talk to you on the phone for the first interview, then second interview is to meet up in their office, 1on1 meeting, however, there is not a single constructive question, after that 1 on 1 interview, I was told that they will schedule another interview going over the compensation and benefits to work for them. At the end, I didn't receive any information from them, I email them, no response, I called them, didn't pick up the phone, I left a voice mail, never called back. It was so unprofessional to the point where I don't want to and would never work for them. And the funny thing is, two months later, the same guy who interviewed me previously, called me again for interview!? I guess he didn't remember I was the one that he humiliated two months ago.
