    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TD Ameritrade (Beverly Hills, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Was contacted for a phone interview with a recruiter. Basic questions about resume and salary requirements. Wanted to know if I would be interested in other positions at different locations. Nothing too difficult. I was emailed a couple assessments to take online which I completed on personality and likelihood of passing the series 7 so math and problem solving questions. After completing the assessments the recruiter contacted me to move on to the in person interview with the branch manager. That interview lasted about an hour and went over the assessment and asked more situational questions. Nothing too out of the ordinary as long as your prepared. Branch manager was friendly so that always helps.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at TD Ameritrade in January 2015.

    Interview

    In person interview questions 7: How did you handle a difficult customer? You must answer in the form of a story e.g beginning, middle and end. Online testing timed: Cognitive skills test like logic, probability e.g coin flipping and simple math. In addition a test to measure your sales skills. I think the in-person interview questions carry more weight in their decisions than the online testing.
