    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Edward Jones.

    Interview Details

    Extremely long process. From start to finish, process took 3+ months. As for the final step in the interview process, Good Luck! However, the process is understandable due to the amount of time and money they invest in you.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Edward Jones in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I contacted an FA for the area in which I wished to become an advisor. I developed a rapport with him and he forwarded my information to the recruiter who contacted me as well. I applied, submitted my resume, and completed the phone interview. I had a face to face interview with a local FA due to my school schedule so I did not have to travel during school. The face to face was alright but after a few days, I found out the FA did not think I was ready to be an advisor. This was very disappointing because I felt that I was a good fit for the position but I did discover after the fact that many current FA's did not get hired during their first attempt. You have to wait one year to apply again.

    Financial Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Edward Jones.

    Interview Details

    Went through multiple rounds. The very last round is a day in the field of an FA. However with no experience it's so open ended that clearly one will be lost. People are friendly and helpful but the final round seemed strange after going through everything. Talk to someone who works there before this rounds.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Edward Jones.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume and got to the first interview, but didn't make it past that. Very competitive, long process. After the phone interview I would go on to a face-to-face interview. I was able to get as far as I did with an employee referral but that just got my foot in the door.

    Financial Advisor Trainee (FACD) Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Edward Jones in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through my university's career website. The process took about 6 weeks. First a phone interview. Then an interview with an actual EJ advisor. Then they ask you to make a "marketing plan" which is essentially who you will contact to make your first commissions. I enjoyed my experience with EJ and I think they are one of the best Financial Advisor firms to work for if you are interested in that field.
