    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at E*TRADE Financial.

    Interview Details

    Initially I was interviewed for another role, 1 hr phone screen with hiring manager, 1 hr phone screen with Senior Manager, they had already someone in mind, so they decided to go with that person, they wanted me to be for contracting position, HR gave an impression that I was hired and face to face interview is conducted only for formality reasons, there was 1 1/2 hr face to face interview with an inter view panel of 6 members, then they told me that they would like to see other people and later they did not offer me the job. No proper communication between HR and the Teams, improper hiring process, very tedious interviews where you would be interviewed every employee in the company.All the questions were repeated in every interview.

    Risk Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at E*TRADE Financial.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process has significantly changed since I was hired greater than >9 years ago. The first interview was with the Human Resources recruiter. I then interviewed with the department head and department colleagues. Shortly after those interviews, the department head was let go from the firm. As a result, I then interviewed with 5 key stakeholders that I would be working with outside of the department. The whole process took about 4 months due to the turnover in the group.

    Interview Details

    Horrible experience. They pay lesser than other bay area tech companies. I went all the way through and in the end, they tried to negotiate for less than what I earn now. Total waste of time and energy. Stay away from this company.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at E*TRADE Financial.

    Interview Details

    Phone screen with recruiter followed by phone screen with hiring manager, then an on-site interview with multiple managers. The recruiting process is managed by a staffing company, in partnership with the hiring manager. Several people are involved in the process to set up / schedule the interview. Be flexible in terms of your schedule given you may receive only one day notice, at best, prior to being scheduled for an interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The process was not difficult. However, there was an unexpected element included in E-Trade's interview process. The process requires all applicants participating in the interview process to complete an application (standard) and an authorization form providing E-Trade with the right to conduct a full background check prior to participating in an interview and / or extending a job offer (not standard). The current practice for most employers is to conduct a background check after a candidate completes the interview process and receives a job offer, with the job offer contingent upon successful completion & passing the background check and other standard pre-employment tests.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at E*TRADE Financial.

    Interview Details

    2.5 hours with 5 people in both NYC and Jersey City office. Some were on the phone, others in person. Questions asked were standard behavioral + "give me an example of a time". Typical fluff -- creativity, leadership, teamwork. Staff was relatively young. No surprises or hard-hitting questions but difficult to talk about personal accomplishments.
