Very Difficult Interview

Service Center Stockbroker Interview

Service Center Stockbroker
Saint Louis, MO

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Scottrade in January 2012.

Interview Details – The entire process with Scottrade was very weird. The recruiter was extremely unprofessional during the initial phone screening and had absolutely no enthusiasm about herself, very monotone. I was given an expectation of 1 week to be contacted for an in person interview, this took 3 weeks instead. They had me submit references (you log into checkster.com and send email invitations to your references and they have to be currently working at a corporation) and I had a very successful( and what I thought was a promising) interview with the manager. After the interview they had me complete an assessment, basically I felt like I was testing for the Series 7 again! Lots of question on options. I was sure I blew it and the recruiter said everyone fails it (so why make people take it?) and she assured me not to worry. She stated the hiring manager was really impressed with me and wanted to confirm my availability. She stated they would be making hiring decisions in a week and a half. I thought I had the job based on the feedback, however 2 weeks later I received a letter in the mail (with my name spelled wrong) that I was not being offered the position.

Interview Question – The 50 question test on options were a big surprise!   Answer Question

Stock Broker Interview

Stock Broker
Exton, PA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Scottrade in April 2010.

Interview Details – The process consisted of a 50 questions series 7 exam, which took me by surprise. I was also asked about what to do if there were multiple clients needing assistance and how i would handle the situation. It was a very laid-back, very friendly environent. This did seem like an excellent place to work, and the hiring manager was very friendly.

Intern Interview

Intern
Los Angeles, CA

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Scottrade in February 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online. Got a call from HR (corporate) and it turned out to be a phone interview (didn't give me notice ahead of time..) They scheduled my interview with the Branch Manager. I wasn't aware until I arrived at the branch that it was a "Chinese Relations" branch. This was reflected in the tight employee mold which I did not fit. I had to sit down at a computer and do an assessment. The computer glitched and had troubles. The interview was very standard (why do you want to work here, what are your strengths, etc) and it also consisted of A LOT of listening about the company. Very dry, awkward, corporate type setting. No one seemed happy to be there.
