    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

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Scottrade in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Submitted a resume online and was later E-mailed by the company's HR director. A phone interview was set up with the HR director. She asked questions such as related work experience, a situation where you had to provide customer service etc. The interviewer was efficient and pleasant to speak with. Afterwards, I was contacted in order to set up a meeting with the local branch manager. The branch manager asked questions about the company history and asked me to provide some facts about the company. Lastly there was a test on the computer to see how you would handle a certain situation with a customer or a co-worker. There were basically no technical questions in any part of the interviews. It has much to do with providing customer service to the customers.

    Back Office Development Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Broomfield, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Broomfield, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Scottrade in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was very painful.

    First, I got a call from HR...asking for details and explaining about the position and all. (It was like an Informal Interview)

    After I agreed for everything (Salary, Internship Length etc), HR set up a formal phone interview where he asked me questions about customer service, about the company..

    Later, after few days, HR called me back again and setup a Onsite Interview, where he said it was HR Interview, I went there and HR had a 1:1 interview asking me questions which were little similar to my phone interview related to customer service, and also questions like how you deal with angry customer?, what are the 3 most important skills for customer service etc. (Round 1)

    After this, he asked me to wait in the interview room and told me that I will be having a technical Interview next (Surprise !!!). After 5 minutes two people turned up and started asking me every possible technical question they can in (Software Engineering, Testing, Databases, Object Oriented Concepts, Data Structures (Binary Search)). Luckily, I correctly answered around 28 questions out of 30 odd questions that were asked. (The questions were not earth shattering, but they wanted to test if you understood them properly). I went back home after these two Rounds.

    Next day, I got a call from HR again asking me to come to onsite again for a next round of Interview somewhere in next week. This time I was Interviewed with two other people (One of them is the Manager), again a mix of technical + HR questions. After the Interview, HR conducted a Skills test which included some basic quantitative analysis questions. When I came out of office, I was really exhausted, but one thing which made me happy was that the HR told me that this is my last round of Interview, and will get the result in a week to 10 days.

    After 10 days I haven't heard from him, so I shooted an email asking about the status. A day after, another HR left me an email asking me to come for an other round of interview for onsite. The only reason I went was that I knew I was pretty close to getting an offer, and didn't want all my previous hard work in vain, though her voice mail really pissed me off.

    This time, I was Interviewed for 2 Rounds, where the first round was very simple, a database guy asked me 4 questions and walked out of the room. The second round was about Java, it went for around 30 minutes or so. Questions were OK, but I felt they were useless. After the interview was over, I got a feeling that, the entire office is interviewing me, felt like, if I give a chance, they will even ask a janitor to interview me (no offence here).

    I came out of office with a feeling that, if these people will call me for another round interview, I am simply gonna show my m****e fi*ger, and tell them that I am no more interested in the job. Few days, after I got a call from HR, Congratulating me , and told that I am selected for the position. Of course, I wasn't excited, he called me again to take the finger printing.

    Overall, for a 18$ job and an Internship in an outdated COBOL technology, they took the crap out of me by taking around 6-7 rounds in the span of two months (I believe not even Amazon or Google does this)

    Interview Details

    Got cold called and asked a few HR questions, took about 5 minutes. The recruiter scheduled a phone interview with my department for the next week. The phone interview had two parts, one with the recruiter which extended the first call and the other with a few members of my department. It lasted about 60 minutes and was pleasant.
