    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at E*TRADE Financial (Sandy, UT).

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty simple compared with other interviews I’ve had. I had a couple interviews with different managers. I feel like they are looking for strong sales people that want to make big money. Not someone that wants to help people with their finances. You need to prove that you’re hungry for the job and be very confident and bold with your answers.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at E*TRADE Financial (Atlanta, GA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Recruiter will call to see if you have sales traits, if you do you will interview with the branch manager who will make you do a childish role play to see if you can sell since they have no valid interviewing skills. You will then spend 8 weeks in training before they tell you about the comp plan. If they showed you the plan up front most people would go back to the job they came from or quit.

    Negotiation

    no negotiations possible

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at E*TRADE Financial.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call back from the recruiter. After she asked some basic questions about my background and why I wanted to join E*TRADE, she corresponded w/ the branch manager to set up an interview. He went over typical sales related questions and then had me sit down with a couple of the current consultants to give me an opportunity to ask them what it's really like as an FC (and of course for them to assess me as a potential coworker). I was then called back for a 2nd interview with the regional manager. We went through a roleplay where I was a store owner and he was the customer. They really love roleplays at E*TRADE... After all was said and done, I got a call back with an offer and dealt w/ the recruiter again until my start date.

    Interview Questions

    • "I just interviewed a candidate with more sales experience than you. Why should I hire you?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not negotiable. $50k base salary w/ ever-changing bonus plan which they'll try to extol because there's no cap on the upside.
