    Service Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Edward Jones (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    If you get passed the resume review, there are normally 2-3 interviews, 1 phone interview and 1-2 face-to-face. Behavioral based questions. Generic emails will be sent if you are no longer under consideration.

    Feedback for interviews are either not available or “you didn’t fit well with our current team environment”.

    Friendly advice to management giving the interview: don’t goof off and tell jokes. Be a little more professional in interviews. Look at skills AND personality, not either/or.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you didn’t meet expectations in a team role.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Edward Jones (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Very long process to weed out those who are not truly serious about the opportunity. First a phone interview, then an in-person interview, then constructing a business plan, ending with a "day in the life" simulation. Every part requires preparation and it is crucial that you know people in the company who can help prepare you for the last two steps

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions other than the obvious "why do you want to work for the company?" type questions will be behavioral. Answer with STAR format.   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Edward Jones (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Like everyone else stated, all the questions are situational. It started off talking about my resume and what my responsibilities were at my previous jobs then around 5 situational questions followed by any questions I had. If you don't prepare then it will be very difficult, but if you have at least 5 or 6 stories in hand, you'll be fine.
