    Financial Services Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sandy, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sandy, UT
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at E*TRADE Financial in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    All initial communication was through email. Made me take some competency test to see if I had the capacity to pass the 7/63. After that test, they reviewed my scores and scheduled a second interview. Questions were pretty easy. A lot of questions asking about how you work under stress or examples of working with unhappy customers.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at E*TRADE Financial.

    Interview Details

    Called in for one on one interview with manager of customer service for the site. Went through very generic questions. Not really focused on the actual qualifications of my past. About 30 minutes long. In the end, she went with someone who she knew from a previous team. Once again, not based on qualifications, but who you know.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter - interviewed at E*TRADE Financial.

    Interview Details

    Allpied via a Recruiting company.
    Initianl phone screening - 30 mins of very basic & general questions.
    Called for on-site interview - Interview was planned for 1 1/2 hour but it got extended for 2 1/2 hours. Questions related with HTML, CSS & JS asked. Mostly on JS - closures, prototypes.

    Reasons for Declining

    But Hiring managers were not clear on salary offer. They kept bargaining - too bad experience. From initial offer to final offer the difference was -20k. Inspite of having a positive experience with interview had a very bad experience when coming to compensation.
