I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Scottrade (Chicago, IL) in July 2014.
I had what seemed like 3 phone interviews with them. They were on point and responsive but they mixed and matched the informal and formal route which only made the process longer and more cumbersome. Spoke with the regional manager as well as the branch manager as well as a couple recruiters. They are a growing company that is really at the elementary stage. Unless you are looking to move to St Louis, not a lot of career advancement opportunities in relationship management/sales.
- The most difficult thing they put you through is the saleskey. Not that it is difficult, but that it takes a long time and the manager wasn't even sure about how to utilize it effectively. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Had better offers with more career advancement potential

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Scottrade (Oak Brook, IL) in July 2014.
The first interview was by phone. A company calls you and asks standardized questions like "Why do you want to work for Scottrade?". If you successfully pass this part you get to go to the branch and interview with the branch manager. At the branch you get to take a personality test via computer. When you are done you get to interview with the branch manager. He basically has a two page list of questions he goes through and fills in your answers in the blank spaces. The next step in the process would be to have a phone interview with the district manager, then a possible job offer.

I applied about two month before i started my summer break. I also called in the HR department to ask about their job opening. Was scheduled a phone interview with the HR recruiter and another face-to-face interview with the branch manager the week later. offered the internship and started working on my second week of my summer break.
PS: The interview will be fairly easy if we get enough preparation. Good luck!

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Scottrade (Saint Louis, MO) in May 2014.
I apply online.First you will have a call for schedule usually within one week. And a call for background check and some simple behavior questions. it may cost 30 minus. Remember when they told you that you can ask something. Ask them. The HR is friendly, don't worry about that.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Scottrade.
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.

Your first interview will be a phone interview with a recruiter. If that goes well you will interview in person with the recruiter, hiring manager, and maybe someone else from the team. The recruiter will use standard HR questions and will write the entire time. If this goes well you will come back for a second interview with senior leadership and maybe a few more team members. You will also take a standardized test. If this goes well they will send you an email asking for references, process your references, background check, and start processing an offer. I would always counter offer - they are notorious for making low offers - even lower than what you are already making. Do not give in - if they want you they will up their offer.
- All of the questions were very standard. The recruiters really like to get into your salary to see if it is possible that you fit into their salary range or would be willing to go down in pay. Answer Question
You have to negotiate - salary offers are very low and they try selling you on bonus and benefits.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Scottrade.
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.
