    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed 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 applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at E*TRADE Financial in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview process seemed pretty straightforward- easy market questions, focused on need for overtime during personal interview. The interview was pretty average, no real difficult questions, but working for the actual company afterward was a different story. Very sales driven to the detriment of the clients-

    Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at E*TRADE Financial in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Basic interview yet very structured and professional. There were two interviews in the process. The questions were standard but I assume the take away was if they were given a determined answer. It was in a secluded and small room with a nice view of Midtown Manhattan so for me it was relaxing.
