    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Edward Jones.

    Interview

    The job title and job description were vague but I was selected to be interviewed. So I thought many things would be cleared up in the first discussion with HR.
    Only HR decided they wanted an hour long video recording of me talking about how great I am for the role before they would even jump on the phone with me to continue the process. So instead, I withdrew from the atrocious interview process.

    Business Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Edward Jones.

    Interview

    Applied on the company website, Several phone interviews, a prerecorded video interview, then an in-person interview. It was fairly transactional and generic. There were no internal cultural awareness questions, and in my in-person interview, I had hoped to "meet the team" but there were no introductions beyond the robotic pleasantries from other staff. I was told I looked "exotic", which was quite inappropriate and my interviewer seemed more interested in where I grew up than my resume, as a stark contrast to the phone conversations with the recruiter. When my recent work accomplishments were mentioned, he said it seemed "unbelievable". I provided references, and the interviewer was slightly unprofessional to the reference. Being that we are in a low diversity area, I was not impressed with the connotation of the word and did not feel that attitude would be suitable for a comfortable work environment overall.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Edward Jones in December 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online through their careers page. A couple days later I received an email requesting I interview for the role. The interview format was through a pre-recorded interviewing platform. The platform would give you a question/prompt, and you'd submit a video response. There were 6 questions in that format; everything from culture questions, to technical questions pertaining to the role. After a couple more days, I was asked to complete 2 questionnaires (mostly background info) before they scheduled a live video interview with the hiring leader. The live interview was in 2 parts and about 90 minutes long - (1) two senior developers asked questions pertaining to my experience with the technology the role would be using and talked about the goal of the role, (2) then the hiring manager joined (as the other two left) and was asking more detailed questions about me and my work experiences, and then asked a few conceptual work culture/personality questions. A few days later (after the weekend) I was given an offer.
