I applied online and interviewed at E*TRADE Financial.

Interview Details – Interview process started off very quickly, first with a phone interview and then a face to face with hiring manager. Next round of face to face was with five people, all very nice. I received great feedback from all the interviews, but then HR just stopped communicating. It was very unprofessional and they have been looking for someone for this position for six months. Now I see why. HR should at least respond with feedback. And, the job is still listed...

Interview Question – The job description was much different compared to what the hiring manager was looking for. The other five people all had different ideas too.   Answer Question

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at E*TRADE Financial in January 2009.

Interview Details – Fairly straightforward technical interview. Absolutely NO behavior questions.
Interviewers were friendly but ill-prepared except for one who was well prepared but surly.

3 rounds of 1:1 interviews. Interviewer asked me to explain current project and interrupted to ask about possible enhancements. Typical "if you could change one thing what would it be" type questions.

Interview Question – Difference in approach to multi-threading in C++ and Java.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate.

Director Interview

Director
New York, NY

The process took 1+ week - interviewed at E*TRADE Financial in February 2011.

Interview Details – I was initially phone interviewed and asked to come in for a face to face interview with four people. After arriving, I met the hiring manager. He asked me the same questions as in the phone interview and I provided similar answers. After twenty minutes, he advised me that they had a candidate that they were close to an offer and brought me in "to make sure he wasn't missing anything." This was a complete waste of my time and very unprofessional.

Interview Question – When did you last provide this analysis?   Answer Question
