I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Scottrade in January 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and submitted a resume and cover letter. Received a call from a recruiter in St. Louis who asked behavioral questions and asked what my future aspirations were. The recruiter then let me know that he wanted to schedule a in office interview. A week later I had an interview with the branch manger and two investment consultants. They asked basic finance questions regarding the stock market and had me take a short skills test. One week later I got a call saying I got the job, and that they would begin the background check. Somewhat of a long process but well worth the wait.

Interview Question – What can you contribute to our office?
Why do you want to work here?

Negotiation Details – Non-Negotiable

I interviewed at Scottrade in August 2012.

Interview Details – Got a call from a Recruiter from MO. Had to try several times to finally get a phone interview down. Pretty generic work back-ground questions. Two weeks of hearing nothing, I receive an interview invite at the branch. Came in and had two sets of interviews. Asked more about my resume and experiences, what i was expecting out of the job, and why i wanted to work there. A Pretty simple and relaxed-environment type interview. A week later I was asked to perform a few assessments on customer service, team work and detail orientation. They were pretty simple

Interview Details – The phone interview asked a few basic interview questions, it was an HR person from their HQ in MO, I heard back 2 weeks later to schedule an interview with my local branch near my school.

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Scottrade in May 2011.

Interview Details – Started with a brief phone interview which led to a 1:1 interview at the branch office. This was kind of awkward because it took place right in the office where the other employees were working and customers were being helped. Regardless, it was a friendly/typical interview that included a simple skills/competency test. Also had the chance to speak with the current intern and ask any questions I may have.

Interview Details – I submitted my resume online at Scottrade.com. I was then called by a recruiter for a phone interview.
