    Financial Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    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.
