Investment Representative Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Edward Jones (Wichita, KS).
Only 10% of applicants are hired. Applied online, had phone interview, then a Gallup survey to see if I was the right type of personality for the job. Then I interviewed for several hours with a local Investment Rep who was older for several hours. Then drug test.
- All fairly normal. They are checking to see if you are sales oriented, can live off little money, have drive to become successful, and have integrity and are likeable. 1 Answer
No negotiations. You get offered a stipend during training, which was much less than my former salary. Once licensed, you work on commission only. You either get out and make sales, or you leave because you can't live off nothing.

- Edward Jones hires only 1% of its applicants. Why should you be in the 1%? Answer Question
It is a pre-established amount for the training period, which lasts for about 6 months. Then, it is based on building your own line of clientele.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Edward Jones (Stillwater, OK) in March 2010.
I was hired directly out of college. The process included an initial application, which was reviewed to determine if I would have a phone interview. The initial interview was with someone in St Louis and then a psychometric phone interview with a third party. Once that was complete, there is a final interview with someone in a local branch office.
- I cannot think of any trick questions. They are looking for entrepreneurial mentality and work ethic over investment knowledge. Answer Question
At the time, the program was a one year base (plus lower base while studying if applicable). No negotiation.
