    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Eaton Vance (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Not any tough technical questions, mostly just conceptual regarding your background. Senior management is laid back and easy to talk to. Lack of technical questions in favor of personality review and work experience was evident .

    Application

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

    Interview

    Two interviews - one with an HR employee and another with the hiring manager. HR interview was a nice warm-up. General behavioral questions about the resume and talking about interest in the position and the firm. The second interview was with the hiring manager. This interview was mostly behavioral in nature with a few questions about the markets, economy and interest rates. I was also asked about my knowledge of the asset class and what interested me about it. Overall pretty positive experience and gave me a good feel for the firm.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Eaton Vance (Boston, MA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    You sit in a conference table with 3 guys. 2 are very seasoned and 1 who just joined the mangers desk who thinks he has something to prove and will try to trip you up. The interview I had very technical, you best to make sure you know what is going on in the markets and how that relates back to at least 5 of Eaton Vance products. It's a big floating rate and fixed income shop so just look into those products to touch upon.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Eaton Vance in September 2015.

    Interview

    Very efficient, two days total on site, both times interviewing with 3 people in the same visit, including the hiring manager, the hiring manager's peers, team members, and the hiring manager's management. Their IT teams are small and the organization is very flat, so it seems like there is little risk in becoming a cog buried in the organization. I was asked to meet with the hiring manager's management, all the way to the CIO which is only two levels above.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Eaton Vance (Boston, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    typical interview process, interviewed with 4 people. there were some written tests and an excel test. honestly a little disappointed. questions were boring and not at all behavioral. made the company seem stagnant and not innovative at all. I also had a foreign language on my resume and they told me, day of, that I would have an interview in that language (a heads up would've been appreciated).
