    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Eaton Vance (Boston, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Took a few months, met with recruiter then 3 members of the department I was interviewing for. Very simple and conversational. Asked to go over my resume, but mostly listened to my job requirements and what I would be doing on the job. No curveball questions. Recruiter got back within the week with decision. Followed by fingerprinting.

    Interview

    A lot of talks with great people, and they care a lot about your interest. I had many opportunities to ask what I want to know about this company, and also hardcore tests. That was quite a standard process for interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Eaton Vance (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    I completed a second round interview at their offices in NYC. The interview process was comprised of a number of 1 on 1 meetings with their team. These interviews were largely behavioral, and structured to get to know me. Later, I completed a case study and presented my thoughts on the potential investment.
