    Interview

    This was a phone interview prior to a in person screening, if I met the qualifications that they were looking for. I thought it was a good step, and I was able to ask questions about benefits during the call as well.

    BOA Branch Office Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edmond, OK
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Edward Jones (Edmond, OK) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening, followed by face-to-face interview with Financial Advisor, followed by online assessment, followed by second face-to-face interview with other FA staff, After six weeks of this process, and being led to believe at both face-to-face interviews that I would be a good fit for the office and that I would be seeing an offer - instead I received a generic "we're moving forward with other candidates" email from the home office. No explanation was forthcoming.

    BOA Branch Office Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Edward Jones (Raleigh, NC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very long and drawn out. From the time I applied until I received an offer was two months! You have to fill-out multiple job applications (3 I think) that all ask for the same information. Then you have at least two phone interviews and at least 2-3 in-person interviews. I don't think you jump through this many hoops to get into the FBI! (just kidding of course). The interviews consisted of all behavior based questions (i.e. tell me about a time...) and took about two hours each. After the first interview, it was a full two weeks before I was invited for a second interview. Then you have to complete an online test that measures your customers service, graph interpretation, and math skills. I got tired of waiting for them to make a decision, so I took another job. Then I was offered this one. The compensation was very low for the position and the benefits are sub-par. Employees are expected to contribute a lot toward insurance.
