    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Edward Jones (Saint Louis, MO) in July 2015.

    Interview

    So far, all phone interviews: First Interview is a pre-interview. They ask about availability, desired salary and why you think you are a good candidate for the job. They set up the day and time of the next interview. The second interview is a more normal interview process. The interviewer is typing up your answers while you speak. At the end, they say they will pass your answers onto the appropriate people. If they are interested, the next interview will be set up. This can take 1 - 2 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions are pretty standard of an interview, but they are looking for concrete answers. They want specific instances of when you did that.   1 Answer
    • It's a slow process. So far it's been two or three weeks and I've not heard anything back yet.   1 Answer

    BOA Branch Office Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Edward Jones (Houston, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Every interview I had with this company was the exact same. The line of questions was read directly from a script from the interviewer felt like a robot in each instance. Had 5 interviews all together this was a very unorganized process with many different departments involved but nobody was seemingly comminicating with each other with in the departments there at EJ. After going through all the steps and background checks I stayed in constant communication with the FA that I was going to work for did everything I was told to do; I found out through the on call at her office I did not clear background and the offer would be recanted. Thus far I have never been formerly advised why I did not clear background, not even in writing. I called talent aquisition a number of times concerned but given an explanation.

    BOA Branch Office Administrator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Edward Jones (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was a very LONG hiring process. This is the basic time line for me: 1) Mid April: Got an interview at the branch through a friend. Then I applied online and the FA referred me to the home office 2) 1.5 weeks later I get a notification in my email to take an online assesment. Took me 1 hour 3) 2 weeks later I get a callbck frm HR to set up phone interview with home office. Fortunately it happened the same week they called 4) About 2.5 weeks later I get a call from FA for a second face-to-face interview. Now, this is already around mid May 5) 3 weeks later I get an official offer from HR. I accepted it and had to provide necessary docs for background check 6) 1 week later background check process starts. I personally made a mistake of turning in one of the requiremed docs. late so another 1.5 week added. Now that was my fault. 7) It's now end of June. I did all my part and another week I wait for HR to respond 8) Second week of July, HR calls notifying that I passed the background check and when I can start. I say I can start ASAP. I start the follwing week on a WED. It took from mid-April to mid-July. If I turned in my docs. earlier that I probably would have started beginning of July. Even then....very very very long process.
