    Easy Interview

    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 .

    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 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).

    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.

    Submitted online application, contacted to set up in person interview, took about 2 hours, met with 3 groups of 2 people each so the interview was more of a conversation. No tough questions, just asking about you and what you know.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Eaton Vance (Boston, MA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process took approximately 3 weeks. I applied online and received a call within a week from a recruiter. Following the call, I had in interview in the office with three employees, including the manager of the team. The next phase was a more serious interview with two employees who had worked at Eaton Vance for over 20 years. Good cop, bad cop sort of deal. One was rude and seemed to not want to be there. The other was nice and wanted to know everything about you. It took about a week or so receive and email with their decision. Most of the interview questions were fairly standard for entry level finance jobs.

    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.
