    Client Relations Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

    Internal Wholesaler Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed 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.

    Global Research Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed 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.

    • You are playing Russian Roulette and you have a 6-barrel gun and there are two bullets in the chamber (lying consecutively in the chamber). I fire one shot at myself and no bullet comes out and then hand the gun to you. Are you going to spin the barrel and shoot at yourself or shoot from where I left it?

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Eaton Vance in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    On-campus interview - Eaton Vance came onto campus and I had two first round interviews for two different positions. Both of the interviews went very well; they asked questions more related to me as a person and my past experiences than quizzing me on any knowledge or any specific question about the firm.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too bad - mostly just making me go into a lot of detail about my past internship experience.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    After speaking with an HR recruiter at an on-campus event, I was called three days later and asked to come into the office for an interview. Was very straightforward, ask behavioral questions and to go through my resume-nothing technical. Felt very comfortable the entire time.

    Equity Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Eaton Vance in July 2011.

    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.

    Tax Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed 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.
