    Interview Details

    Very basic, asking about resume and experience. Interview was more of a dialogue. First I spoke with the general recruiter, who then scheduled follow up interviews with different managers to see who was the best fit. Everyone was very nice during the process.

    I applied online – interviewed at TD Ameritrade in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a branch manager position at TD Ameritrade via their online system. After a few days (not too long) I was contacted for a phone interview. Recruiter was very nice, asked questions about current positions, why I want to leave, etc. Gave me information about the position and let me ask all the questions I had. At the end of the interview I was sent a link to a sales assessment test which I took online.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at TD Ameritrade.

    Interview Details

    Was recruited, interviewed, passed over and offered a lower position. They took bout 6 weeks to complete the process. They seemed disorganized, uncertain of what they wanted. First interview over the phone, second in person with 8 managers in one room, chaotic. HR recruiter did not provide accurate information regarding upward management- they seemed upset at the interviewee for an HR mistake.

    Interview Questions
    • They don't ask difficult questions because they don't know the industry that well. Seems like they hire outside the industry for management positions, who did the interview. They are looking for a specific response, not a truthful answer   Answer Question

    Manager- Internal Development, Guidance & Strategy Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at TD Ameritrade in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview with internal recruiter was great. Then- panel interview with managers was awful. Was going great with one team member, then other manager Manager was 15 minutes late then comes on and proceeded to break me down and find ways that I was not a fit for the job, only concerned with my current role and how it had to exactly relate to their dream candidate. As if I can not learn, adapt or develop! Really not interested in me, my strengths or what I bring to the table. A colossal waste of time. I have recently interviewed with 10 large Financial Services Institutions and this was hands down the worst. I really just decided in our conversation that I would never want to work in this culture and management and said it was not going to be a fit- the first time I have ever done this in an interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Condescending and combative interview tone- Where is this coming from? Here is a tip- maybe this works for internal applicants who are trying to move up the ranks? (the whole, why should we hire you? Yawn. . . ) This is not going to be effective in recruiting experienced folks like me away from my firm. Guess the grass is no greener! Good luck.   View Answer
