    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AXA Advisors in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Received email to set up an interview. Interview was in person with a head of a team. It wasn't really an interview as in "walk me through your resume" but more of a "why do you want to do this?" "what do you like to do outside of work?" type of interview. Essentially making sure I knew what I was getting into and then making sure I would be a good fit. Very casual.

    After the initial interview, you fill out information for a background check and then you meet the whole team.
