Principal Interview

Principal
Fort Worth, TX

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at TD Ameritrade in November 2011.

Interview Details – Internal application filled out. Scheduled interview with team manager and assistant manager. Questions were not related to my resume. They used the STAR method for all of their questions. Manager and assistant manager rotated asking questions and spent most of the time writing down my answers. Basic questions included:

Give an example of one time when you had to deal with a difficult employee. What did you do and how did they handle it.

Senior Java Developer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Jersey City, NJ

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at TD Ameritrade in June 2011.

Interview Details – The HR person talked over phone on a Friday and had telephonic technical interview for half an hour the Tuesday after that. Called for a face to face interview to the Jersey City the next week. After I went there they asked me about my salary expectations and the HR person got disappointed and they conducted a name sake interview for 1.30 hours by three persons each 30 minutes . It was a total disappointment and after I paid for air ticket. It seems there was communication between the HR Department at Nebraska and Jersey City office.
