    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at First Investors Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Received a phone call for an interview of which I do not recall applying for, but with the "I need a job , any job jitters" I agreed to an interview. Like everyone else described I was told to come in the following Tuesday for a group interview. After reading up on the company and position I opted out of the gig because with a new born I would not be able to commit the time required especially to a position I had no passion for (finance). Not to mention I did not have the money required to pay down on a licence for a position I have no interest in (finance)

    Interview Details

    Friendly and easy. Started as group interview then invited for a solo interview. Company was inciting but upon further research I found it was a scam. Being a recent college grad, I'm glad I did my research and saved my time and money. No one wants to lose any money trying to attain a full-time position. Plus they didn't even offer benefits.

    Met Richmond VP at job fair, was contacted for an interview. Six other people were there, we were given an hour presentation on the company, fairly standard, and then had an interview that lasted less than five minutes. Basically just checking for a pulse before the next interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at First Investors Corporation in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I met a recruiter a career fair and he was just weird. He asked me regular small talk questions and every time I tried to answer he'd interrupt me mid way. He seemed distracted and I was getting annoyed because that's just plain rude. I described some of the work that I do and he was more interested in how many connections I had and how big my portfolio was. He then gave me a pamphlet and told me to do research on what made these people successful and if I possessed any of those qualities. Afterwards, I went home and researched the firm and wow, I was not wrong. It's sketch.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at First Investors Corporation in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    One of the best interview experiences I have ever had. Very professional, but also very engaging. Took the time to address questions and gave a good presentation of what the company has to offer.

    The first interview is a group interview where you meet other potential candidates and you watch a presentation about the company. Then you meet one on one with vice president or hiring manager. You are given a set of competency questions to take home and fill out.

    The second interview they cover everything about the position and meet one on one with the hiring manager and go over your questions that you turn in. Your are then asked several additional questions about your background and asked give additional information.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult. They give you competency questions to take home and fill out for your second interview. I will note that don't put "graduating college" as one of your significant achievements.   Answer Question

    Group interview then personal interview. It is a total scam. No base salary, 100% commission. Good luck surviving on $5K/year. They try to convince you that the company is great but they will tell you to go sucker your parents into getting insurance that they don't need and then will pay you terribly. AVOID.
