    Operations Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at E*TRADE Financial (Jersey City, NJ) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted the following day through email requesting a phone interview the same day. Recruiter told me to reply to email in 10 minutes otherwise call him to schedule a phone interview. He proceeded to call me at the time agreed but questions were very simple and told me straight up he was organizing the database for future contact. Basically he was fishing for information such as salary, roles, ect but had no job offer in reality. I felt used and felt he wasted my time. Besides, he didn't really know what the role of operations really entailed as there can be many functions of it and when I asked him he couldn't provide a straight answer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at E*TRADE Financial.

    Pretty simple behavioral question. Nothing technical, very conversational. I first did a standard phone interview where I was asked questions about my resume. I was invited for an office visit where they did pretty much the same thing. I did resume review with 5 or so individuals who talked about the same things regarding the company and their position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at E*TRADE Financial.

    Interview

    Unprofessional recruiting practice: After taking an entire afternoon off from work, some of the interviewers never showed up, was told they would be rescheduled but never were, never heard back from the recruiter after being told I would hear back and not even after I politely reached out after waiting a while. Was told some things by one of the interviewers that made me wonder why I was even brought in. I did like the other people I met.

    Interview

    I applied this position on E*Trade website. Within one week, I got email from a recruiter and he wanted to schedule interview with me. I replied his email within 2 hours. I told him I am currently working, it would be easier for me to talk around 12 pm. He didn't reply my for two days. So I followed up with him. He apologized for his late response he said he won't be free for the rest of the week.We made a new appointment on the following Monday noon. On the day we suppose to have an interview, I had emergency at work, so I got pulled into a meeting with managers. I emailed this recruiter again. I told him I had emergency and can we have a meeting in the afternoon. He never replied my emails and of course he didn't call me either. I don't understand why he didn't reply email and I think this is really rude.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at E*TRADE Financial (Alpharetta, GA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    6 hours, interviewing with 7 different people. They asked a lot of general questions about their current state. Biggest frustration was it took them another 2 weeks to get back to me and simply said they chose someone else, no feedback at all. Very disappointing that I would take that much time to go through the process and then as soon as they don't need me, nothing. Very unprofessional.
