    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Scottrade.

    Interview

    Went through the phone and branch interview, Was told I am in the final pool of candidates. Completed an online referral tool. What surprised me was there was no response from the recruiter or the branch after an email requesting an update to the hiring process. Please treat those who apply to your company with dignity and if they are not hired, let them know. Very unprofessional

    Stock Broker Intern Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Scottrade (Santa Cruz, CA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I had an hour long interview where the manager asked me questions off a sheet that Scottrade forces their managers to use. Most of the questions are ridiculous behavioral things that you should have answers prepared for if you've ever interviewed for a "real" job. The one that might take a minute is "What can you say to me that will make me remember you after you leave this interview and will make me want to hire you?"

    After that portion of the interview, I actually had a supposed "off the record" interview for another 20 minutes where we just talked about my past work experience and other business related matters. Then I took 3 online personality tests that took another 20 minutes.

    I felt like I nailed the interview and the tests were incredibly easy. In all honesty, I was over-qualified for the position and didn't expect to get the internship, but I was still upset to be rejected. I am still planning to speak to the hiring manager to find out why.

    Interview Questions

    • What can you say to me that will make me remember you when you leave the interview and make me want to hire you?   Answer Question
    • What would you do if you thought you had a better way of doing something and the manager didn't listen to you?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Scottrade (Exton, PA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    The process consisted of a 50 questions series 7 exam, which took me by surprise. I was also asked about what to do if there were multiple clients needing assistance and how i would handle the situation. It was a very laid-back, very friendly environent. This did seem like an excellent place to work, and the hiring manager was very friendly.
