    The process first starts with a phone interview and then you get an interview with the branch manager. The phone interview was a little more intense but once you go in the office the interview questions aren't bad. They are most like ''name me a time when...'' ''what would you do if...''

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Scottrade.

    Interview Details

    2 phone screen and on site. Met the worst recruiter ever! Very unprofessional and arrogant. Never kept his words. Very disappointed with the experience! A WASTE of my time!
    Technical guys are so so, general questions, nothing too difficult.
    I heard many top technical guys left Scottrade, now I see the reason. Show some respect to the interviewees! I cannot imagine how they treat current employees.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    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 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.
