Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade in January 2015.

Interview

A brief interview with a recruiter went well. He asked a few questions and wanted STAR format answers. I interviewed for one start date but got pushed but to another much later date due to an internal error after waiting months already. I've interviewed at several other financial firms and TD by far has the slowest process to get people on board.

Interview Questions

  • basic star format questions about how you handled past situations   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade.

    Interview

    Hiring process consists of a short phone interview, 2 assessments (personality, and basic mathematical skills), and an in person interview with 2 managers. Questions are very basic behavioral type questions. Easy to get along with the managers. There is not a drug test

    Interview Questions

    • None of them were technically difficult, all pretty much fluff questions, search behavior questions online and you will be fine   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No Negotiation available- but you get to choose your shift, each shift pays differently
