Submitted my application online and received an email from the HR department aprox. 3-4 weeks later, to schedule a phone interview. The HR spokesman who phone interviewed me was very pleasent and easy to talk to while still very professional. Lasted about 12-15 mins. Asked 5 "name a time" questions. Not very hard questions.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Scottrade.

    Interview Details

    The process of hiring is lengthy, but smooth. Just like the others mentioned, there are typically two interviews: a behavioral interview, given over the phone with the corporate trainer, and the actual interview with the branch manager. The questions are easy, nothing out of the ordinary, really; but then again, it depends on your branch manager's interviewing abilities.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    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

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.
