    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Edward Jones (Rolla, MO) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, took at least a week to get an interview, we met on my campus with several other people interviewing for the same job. It first started off with a one-on-one interview with a gentleman in HR, mainly asking questions about how you would handle different situations. After that I had to wait a few minutes until the next gentleman was ready, and he asked questions about the specific job, like mine was about different coding. A few weeks went by and I didn't hear from the company. I even emailed them to see what my status was, and no response.
