    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Scottrade.

    Interview Details

    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.

    IT Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Scottrade.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • 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
    Negotiation Details
    You have to negotiate - salary offers are very low and they try selling you on bonus and benefits.

    Branch Intern Interview

    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.

    Investment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brandon, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Scottrade in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted from the home office first that they wanted to do a phone interview. I passed that and then we set up a face to face interview. After that - when I made it to the top few, they sent me a backgound check form and checkster to get personal reviews OF ME from my old bosses, peers, and old coworkers. At the interview you start off being asked about 256 questions on your learning style and how you feel towards sales and brokerage/finance items.

    Interview Questions
    • I suppose the question that threw me off the most was the few that came from the 256 questions I answered early in the interview. They asked me why I didn't like saying I was in sales...   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They wouldn't budge on my salary but given the salaries shown on glassdoor it seems I was up towards to top of the salary scale anyways.
