    Financial Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Edward Jones.

    Interview

    Lengthy process. Appeared disorganized. Very subjective informal interviews with several people, followed by a simulated financial advisor experience which was super awkward, as you’re pretending to be a financial advisor with zero licenses or training. In my opinion, doing well on this simulation is in NO way indicative of someone’s ability to do the job or the inherent qualities that firms should be looking for in financial advisors, the non-teachable qualities.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Edward Jones.

    Interview

    I met with an FA in the area for an interview. She told me they had to verify who I was and also ask me situational questions. I'd suggest thinking about your previous experiences dealing with clients, partnerships, and people. Read the careers page at the Edward Jones website and try to speak to a couple of advisors. This should prepare you well for the interview.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Edward Jones.

    Interview

    The interview process is somewhat extensive, but the interviewer is basically looking for someone who understands and converses well with new and existing clients. It is a long process, so I am hopeful that it is worth it.

    Interview

    Interview process was very laid back and felt very conversational. The person who actually interviewed me gave me his card and we still have conversations and dialogue today, even though I did not accept the job that I had originally interviewed for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Edward Jones.

    Interview

    The process is somewhat lengthy, but gave me the feeling that they really want to make sure it is a great fit on both ends. Begins with a couple of phone interviews, then an interview with an advisor in the region in which you are applying, and a couple of hands on activities.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Edward Jones (Ames, IA (US)).

    Interview

    Many phone interviews along with an in person interview, business plan activity, and day in the life simulation. It was not too difficult all of the people I spoke with were very friendly, but it gets repetitive and you answer the same questions multiple times.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Edward Jones (Saint Louis, MO (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Phone interview was fast. Very thorough.
    Long time between next interview. Thought it went great, very stressful. Then received the 'not interested' email, with no feedback. Not sure what else I could have done, or why they didn't pick me.
