    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
    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.

    Senior Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Jersey City, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.

    interviewed at TD Ameritrade in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    There was a series of 6 interviews with the team that I was hoping to join, four of which were in person and the other two were over the phone since the managers were not able to be present that day. The interviews were mostly fit and psychological, rather than problem solving.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at TD Ameritrade in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Got phone interviewed twice, first by HR Rep, and then by the hiring manager. Then was brought on site for 6 back-to-back interviews. There were 3 case interviews and 3 behavioral ones. The whole process took about 4-5 hours and was pretty straight forward. The case interviews were pretty simple, compared to consulting case interviews, and the managers and directors were very helpful. Then they called to schedule 2 more phone interviews with directors of the group. Those were also pretty easy, cultural fit questions.
