    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at TD Ameritrade (Omaha, NE) in May 2014.

    Interview

    They used a list of standard questions similar to interviewing an entry level associate. Uses a STAR format. STAR stands for situation, task, actions and result. It is very important to follow the format and give as much details as possible. If you remember the date and year and the clients name would be even better. The more detail the better. Also emphasize what you do extra to get the result.
