    Financial Advisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    It was a long process and you have to pass 3 exams in order to become fully licensed. It took from March until now to become fully licenses. Others could do it faster probably, but COVID closes a lot of testing facilities down.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    You will be in contact with a representative of the firm for about 3 or 4 phone calls before they ask you to come in to the office. It seemed a little bit overkill, personally.

    Financial Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Western & Southern Life (Indianapolis, IN (US)) in July 2020.

    Interview

    I have three rounds of interviews with 4 weeks, the process is too long. And it requires to have a life and health insurance license in three weeks. This is a hard part of the study's large amounts of material in a short period. Also the working environment is ok but is not near the city which means you need a car to work.

    Financial Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH (US)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Western & Southern Life (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Very Long, detailed, patient, not very flexible with scheduling. Lots of homework was involved as far as videos, assessments, screening, etc. I felt there was so much asked of me that I couldn’t prepare myself the best for the interviews. This caused me not learning as much as I could about the role.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Western & Southern Life.

    Interview

    I got a call the next day after applying online -- had another phone interview the following week and offered an in-person interview. I still had a presentation to go before receiving an offer. I declined the offer because it's a long process for not wanting to be a financial advisor long term.

    Insurance Sales Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lima, OH (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Western & Southern Life (Lima, OH (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    The manager was friendly and he asked the the usual questions. After the verbal interview I was asked to take a pre-employment assessment test. The first part was a ten minute timed section that included logic and math questions. The rest was behavioral questions. Be careful with this part. The test is designed to alert them if you are trying to answer favorably. A few of the questions were asked more than once.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Western & Southern Life (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    They were all very kind and helpful throughout the interview process. I was introduced to the entire staff on the first day, which really made me feel welcome. If you're going into the interview you should expect questions at a moderate level of difficulty, not anything out of the ordinary.
