    Mutual Funds Services Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Eaton Vance.

    Interview Details

    I met with a recruiter in an on campus interview. The interview was pretty informal and casual. The questions were mostly behavioral and conversational about my resume and background. The recruiter said I would be a great fit, but the company hires on a need basis and they wouldn't know if they had an opening for a couple of months. The recruiter said to check back with him in a couple of months to see if they had an opening for me. Seemed like a backwards way to interview.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Eaton Vance.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, but also had an employee referral. I heard back about a week later that they wanted me to come in for an interview. I interviewed with 3 different people. One was from HR and the other two were potential managers. They asked all pretty straightforward questions about myself and my past experiences, nothing too tricky.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Eaton Vance.

    Interview Details

    After a preliminary interview I was invited to a "Superday" at their Boston office. The process was exhausting and excessive to say the least. I was told I would have to take an Excel Test at the end of my five interviews with five different associates. What they didn't mention was the surprise memory test, word association test, general reading quiz, general math quiz, statistics quiz (got a calculator though!!...), and brain teaser questions. After being subjected to all of this, I was then questioned on multiple economic concepts and expected to discuss European politics.

    Internal Wholesaler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Eaton Vance in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview was a bit painful. The manager had no interview skills and lead off with "so tell me about yourself" and then crickets. After about eight minutes the interviewer checked his email. He then invited another person into the interview. This gentlemen actually discussed the position and had a dialogue back and forth about my resume and what the position would entail. I would not recommend this company based upon my experience. I actually got a second interview but declined.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Eaton Vance in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I got a call from HR on Friday. I didn't catch the call due I was busy. She asked me to return the call to the certain number. I called back on Monday, but no one answered the calls so I left voice mail. HR didn't get back to me back so when I called on Tuesday again. I don't know if I called too many calls (2 calls within Monday and 1 call on Tuesday). HR just cut my call when I called again around noon. It is pretty mean and weird.

    Interview Details

    Positive interview experience, very professional, and at the time, they said they have never let anyone go throughout the downturn. But the firm never followed up after interview; this is very typical in Boston to not get follow up.

A lot of the questions were standard and repetitive.
