Declined Offer – Interviewed in New York, NY (US) Feb 2013 – Reviewed Jun 17, 2013 New
Interview Details I applied on my school website and received a call from HR a few hours after. An interview was set up. During the actual interview, the recruiter did most fo the talking trying to sell me on the job and what would be needed to be done if I was interested. I declined the offer and the interviewer wished me the best.
Interview Question – Nothing really. He asked if I was interested. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Position was not what I thought it was.
Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Chandler, AZ (US) Nov 2011 – Reviewed Jun 09, 2013 New
After an informal interview, you do a personality test and some other basic paperwork.
If it's for commission sales, they are so desperate they will hire pretty much anyone. It helps if you have a history of fraud and corruption.
Interview Question – No curve balls from the interviewer. Again, they want as many hires as possible. View Answer
Negotiation Details – If you are given an offer from this company, run the other way. Do not take it!

Interview Details Standard first interview. The interviewer seemed to do most of the talking and introduced the company and the position. It seemed as if he was interested in getting the right person. While I learned more about the position, I realized I was not interested in it. Nevertheless, the interviewer was very friendly.
Interview Question – Do you watch baseball? Answer Question

Interview Details Went to the first interview when AXA came to our college fair to recruit. The people were incredibly nice and friendly and honest about the position -- that is, that sales is not for everyone. They told me what they expected (entrepreneurship, social skills, ability to make small talk, build relationships, etc.) and I realized sales was not the field I was interested in.
Interview Question – First interview -- they didn't provide questions. Rather, the interview was a get-to-know-you and the interviewer provided information about the company. Answer Question
Declined Offer – Interviewed in Clifton Park, NY (US) Mar 2013 – Reviewed May 01, 2013
Interview Details The interview process was really straight forward and relatively informal. We E-Mailed specifying a time to meet and I came to the office where we sat down and basically just had a conversation about AXA and about me as a candidate. Really informative and open about the system. I enjoyed the interview because it was not pressured and provided me more of an opportunity to ask questions and get to know my interviewer and AXA in general.
Interview Question – No really difficult questions for me, we just had a conversation. It was less questions more speaking back and forth. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I was looking for more opportunities that highlighted my skills and what I wanted to do. Competitive offer but not what I was looking for at the time.
Declined Offer – Interviewed in Orange, CA (US) Apr 2013 – Reviewed Apr 19, 2013
Interview Details Went for the first interview, most what the executive spoke was about the company and how it handled business, also asked about my past, present and future goals. they were mostly considering individuals who wanted to grow their own book, thru referals, organizing events, etc... looks like a great company but not interested in starting again from scratch.
Interview Question – Everything was pretty straight forward, didnt have any tricky questions Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Didnt want to make a book of business

Interview Details Hiring process was essentially a breeze. The only thing the hiring manager cared about was if you could become "contracted". This means, once you are licensed, you meet a certain commission level to be officially brought on board. The level is fairly easy to obtain, but this type of business opens its doors to all. They throw everyone out to the wolves and see you sticks.
Interview Question – No difficult questions. It was just an open conversation about family, school, hobbies, and minimal about the company or industry. Answer Question

Interview Details I met the VP of the local branch and had a long conversation with him at a job fair. Then, I have received initial contact through an email to set up an official interview. The interview was a formal, 1-on-1 meeting with the VP. He mainly asked about any questions I had about the firm and position itself.

Interview Details Applied through school's career website, was then contacted over the phone by AXA representative. Then scheduled a time for interview. It was a group interview. Basic questions asked, etc. It is really nothing to worry about. Just do your research. Know what the company does, and you will be fine.
Interview Question – The questions are really basic. Like "what do you want to get out of this internship" etc. Answer Question
Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Buffalo, NY (US) – Reviewed Mar 30, 2013
Interview Details This is a drawn out process...at least three interviews. Relatively low pressure interview style. Get the impression that employees are DEFINITELY expected to connect to their natural market (meaning...call your friends and family). Advisors were friendly, and the office seems pretty busy.
Interview Question – Honestly, AXA did not ask unexpected questions. The process was almost too easy, which makes me nervous. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Must show why you add value or are worth more than "Joe" down the hall.
