    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Questrade in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. Got an email about best time to talk with HR. HR called me and matched the requirements of job with my skillset. She also asked why I am interested in this job and position. why this position attracts me. How much experience I have relavant to position? How will I handle conflicts within team.
    Then she scheduled a face to face interview. Here I got a big mistake, I reached there for interview 20 minutes late. The interviews were not have enough time to assess me as they ended interview right after 40 minutes. I was able to see that they have questions but they don't have time as they have to vacant to interview place for some other activity.
    Interviewers attitude was good, they were asking much on team management, less on technologies.
    after 2 days I got an email from Hr that they will decide about my case in next week, I thought they are searching for some other interviews and if they didn't find then they will hire me.
    My assumption was correct, next week I got an email that they have selected someone else.
    My negatives here were :
     I was late in interview.
    I had management experience from Pakistan.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Questrade.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by HR and done five minutes phone interview. And then met with manager for face to face interview. The whole process lasted within 2 weeks. Exceptionally efficient. However due to its online brokerage, I was required to sign several disclosure including if holding any other brokerage accounts. HR people are generally polite and professional. Two business references are required in order to get hired which is generally acceptable.

    Production Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Questrade in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a phone interview scheduled by HR the next day. Other than generic questions (career goals, why QT etc. ) she asked me to list some basic Unix commands used for system monitoring. An interview was scheduled the next day with the team lead and the director of support.
    The interview was very stressful. I was interrupted all the time. I am not sure if this was an arbitrary attempt to see how candidates function under stress or a reflection of stress within the team. After quite challenging questions on Unix and system architecture they asked me about different situation I could encounter when doing support and what will be my course of actions. I was also asked basic SQL and domain questions. Financial questions: what is a GTC order, how do you lower an order priority on an exchange.
    I got an email the following week saying that they picked another candidate but I am encouraged to keep applying as they have lots of staff turnover. I am not surprised why.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Questrade.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview before moving on to actual interview. The second interview felt kind of fake as if their minds had already been made to hire someone else. So we just sat there and chitchatted about random stuff. No notes, paperwork was made, which led me to believe that.
