Let me start off by saying Im currently a banker at a major bank and Im ready to step out of pushing checking accounts. I recently went on an interview with ING advisors. It seems like a pretty normal plan with about a 30k “salary” the first two years benefits. One main difference I have seen is that there is an upfront fee for planning. I just have a few questions.

Has anyone worked from them and if so what has the experience been like?

I have to pay upfront for my licensing and after passing I get reimburssed?(Is this a good deal?)

No other places around me are currently hiring that I can find. Im just looking to get out of the bank channel. The bank I work for only hires FC’s with all current licenses.

Are they asking you for “start-up capital”?

No its 1000 bucks for the training fees and books for the license and then once I pass they repay me. They said I should keep my current job until I pass then once I do I sign my contract.

Which licenses? If it’s just the 7, you could go to a discount and they’d pay you to get it without a contract.
