    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TD Ameritrade in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Received a phone call from a recruiter for a brief phone interview that consisted of some basic questions relating to relevant experience. This is a customer service and sales position first so the questions leaned towards experience in customer service roles, previous sales experience, and pretty basic interview questions.
    The next step was a face-to-face interview with the hiring manager. This was a little more detailed and delved further in to the previous customer service experience. Basic questions about how one would resolve issues with unsatisfied clients, experience in selling/suggesting products to clients, comfort levels with interacting with clients over the phone. The interview was fairly basic for this type of role.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at TD Ameritrade in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Contacted via email by HR told to come in for interview with 3 managers. Later in the day told it was a mistake and a screening phone call would take place a few days later. After the screening phone call I was asked to come in a week later to meet with 3 managers. Showed up early and had to wait for manger to come in around 915. Interview was for 9. Spoke with one manager for 45 mins. Which left little time left to speak with other 2 managers. THey apologized but it was really bad time management by the first manager. I sent a thank you follow up to all parties the day after. A week later I contacted HR asking whether the position was filled. Three months later still no response. I have seen the position again advertised on Linkedin. Very unprofessional HR and managers in my opinion.

    Client Services Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at TD Ameritrade in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    After applying for this position I was contacted by their HR Shared Services dept. The email communication went very well and I was given a time slot a few days later to interview with a recruiter. When the recruiter called he sounded very young and inexperienced. He had very little personality and asked me very basic interview questions that did not challenge me one bit. After a few minutes I felt as if I was the recruiter running the interview. I could hear the recruiter typing away on his keyboard and not being very engaged. The interview lasted about 20 minutes, but it felt like an hour. After the interview I sent a thank you email to the HR person that originally contacted me as the recruiter did not provide me with that information. Well as I figured I never heard back from the recruiter.

    Financial Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at TD Ameritrade in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through the website. Had a pleasant phone interview with a talent acquisition specialist and was sent a sales aptitude survey via email. I took the survey and four days later received a form email saying that they had hired another candidate. The survey asked a lot of questions about how comfortable you are with making lots of phone calls and if you are comfortable being called a sales person or sales rep as though we should be embarrassed to be in sales. Also asked a couple of ethics questions, etc. I got the impression that they are looking for more aggressive sales types to get the assets and hen move on to the next potential client rather than being a true financial consultant.
