Yeah, I should rephrase that....its really not a "full time" position though as you're an independent contractor and become part of a "roster pool" and are picked randomly.
First step is an application. That process takes ~90 days. Then if you're accepted you are required to take an exam. 25 multiple choice questions. that is where i'm at now and was just curious if anyone else took the exam...i'm finding the material quite difficult laden with legal jargon

thx

Why do this part time when there are agencies hiring auditors by the boatload (full time, benefits plus retirement)?

I'm asking specifically about FINRA because this is test I'm taking and I feel like a complete idiot looking at the study materials....feels like I really need a law background so was wondering if anyone had experience with this specific exam....

There are much easier retirement gigs. FINRA Auditor is for ballbusters that like to travel. What was your career specialized in?

The previous poster is referring to the Series 7 and 63 exams, which are needed if you are going to be selling investment products. I've taken the 7 and 66 and they are tough - similar to the bar exam for a lawyer and you do need to know about specific laws and regulations. I'm thinking the exam you're studying for is similar, especially nowadays, since FINRA is making a big push to have investment firms be compliant to regulations.


You may find Investopedia.com to be helpful for researching tems, laws, regulations, etc. I used it quite a bit when studying for my exams, especially since the study materials my firm gave me were out of date.
