Financial Advisor Trainee (FACD)
Saint Louis, MO

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Edward Jones in May 2012.

Interview Details – You go through an initial phone interview with a regular HR person. Then you have another phone interview with an FA recruiter HR person. After then they will schedule a face to face interview with a high level FA in the area around you, to see if you have what it takes. Finally when you pass that, they will send you a sample marketing packet. You will have to create a mock business plan ( I suggest becoming friends with a local EDJ FA for help), and participate in their business building activity. Which is going door to door asking people to do a business survey with you. They do this to see if you are comfortable going door to door to build your business.

Interview Question – Questions are pretty basic. One that threw me off was. If someone at the door asked you what a hot stock was, what would you say?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiations, salary is set.
