    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Scottrade (Saint Louis, MO) in February 2017.

    I applied online on Scottrade Careers website, and 1 day later got an email scheduling a phone interview. Talked to a recruiting specialist about Investment Consultant position, and decided it was not really what I wanted. I am more interested in a research analyst position, not a financial advisor position. Therefore, I decided not to continue the process.

    Learning and Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Broomfield, CO

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Scottrade (Broomfield, CO) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted an application on-line. That position was canceled and replaced with a new slightly different title. I re-submitted to that and had a 30-minute phone screen with a recruiter. Then I was invited to interview at their Service Center, it was three rounds of thirty-minute meetings with different department leads: HR, Service Center, Training. It was more of a conversation than Behavior based interview questions. They each had a question sheet but didn't use them. Very professional environment. I was then contacted by the recruiter, told the interview went well and that Scottrade wanted to move to the next step. I completed a release for a background check, completed their service center personality assessment, then received a form generated turndown e-mail. My background is 100% clean so I assume they just went with different applicants, not sure.
