    Interview

    Mostly was to determine if you are a normal person who can interact with employees at the office and get clients. They look for self motivated and hard working individuals. You need to be a likable and trustworthy person to retain potential customers. An entrepreneurial spirit is important for this position.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview

    First interview is just informative and if still interested go back for another one. The job is just cold calling trying to get clients for the managing partner. It is not financial at all but rather a sales job. No salary just commission based.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at AXA Advisors.

    Interview

    Pretty easy overall. You'll talk to several interviewers. No hard questions. Be easygoing, seem trustworthy. The most important two factors they are looking for is your number and quality of connections, and your attitude/never give up/etc. Know what this company does. Pretty much, sell financial planning. Basic financial knowledge required.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors (Houston, TX (US)).

    Interview

    The process was pretty straightforward. I got called on afternoon, we talked a bit about AXA and what I was looking for. We then scheduled a full phone interview, took a little more than an hour, kinda challenging but nothing out of the ordinary, be prepare on what you want out of career. Drove to Houston for an office interview, talked about this position and other basic questions about AXA. Got invited for the final interview and talked more about logistics of job and process. Great people, laughed at my jokes.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at AXA Advisors (The Woodlands, TX (US)).

    Interview

    The first interview was an ordinary behavioral interview with rapid fire questions. It was a day after an on campus recruiting event at the university. Second interview was a group interview in Houston a week later, the regional manager gave a presentation about the company and the candidates were allowed to ask questions at the end. The third and final interview was in the Woodlands with the manager and the recruiting advisor, it was basically a behavioral interview again but now by the manager.
