    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Edward Jones in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Prior to the interview EJ sends you a 17 page employment application. That's no exaggeration. Fortunately, it's a read/write PDF. I completed it and tried to fax it back to St. Louis, as directed. The fax number given to me was wrong - it was a private voice line. Finally sent it to an alternative number. Incidentally, the app asks for your date of birth.

    The interviewer was your typical HR moron. She knew absolutely nothing about the job I was interviewing for, and could not ask any intelligent questions about me or my suitability. Instead, she read verbatim (from a script, apparently) approximately 7 'behavioral questions' asking me to identify situations and how I handled them in previous jobs. She then very painstakingly transcribed my answers. I was on the phone an hour.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a particularly challenging situation in a past job, and how you addressed the issues, blah, blah, blah   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a time in which you were working on a deadline driven project and an important client came in and needed attention. How did you manage the 2 competing priorities, blah blah blah.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Edward Jones in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Did 1:1 interview with FA. Then did phone interview with HR rep from headquarters. Lot's of specific behavioral questions for both. The questions were a little ridiculous in terms of how specific the situation has to be. No one's memory is that good. FA was very professional, so was the HR rep.

    Had to complete the application before the phone interview. The application was long and detailed.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Edward Jones in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Arrived at the appointed time and the interviewer said he / she was ill and could we reschedule. Never called me back. I now believe it was just to 'see' me. I don't know if it was for the purpose of age, 'looks', etc.
