    Investment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Scottrade (San Francisco, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    From the Scottrade career website I found a Investment Consultant posting at a local branch and I applied and uploaded a resume. A week or so later I received a email from a talent accusation specialist requesting availability for a phone interview. We set up a mutual time and a phone interview was conducted over about 45 minutes. It consisted of around ten behavioral questions which requested describing a past situation and how I handled it. At the conclusion of the phone interview I was allowed to ask a few questions, some of which the interviewer answered and others I was told could be answered if I were to get a follow up interview with the local branch manager. Shortly after that I received a email requesting a in person interview at the local branch with the branch manager and I was required to sign some e-documents to authorize a background & credit check. A time was set and I met with the branch manager. Before the interview I was required to take a Sales Key assessment test of about 250 multiple choice questions, about 5% of which were time limited. I spent about 1.5 hrs. on this task sitting at one of the investment consultants desk visible to branch customers in a noisy branch. Live customers, telephones ringing, telephone conversations and a loud TV with business news on made concentration a challenge. Upon completion of the test I waited in the office lobby for the manager to finish working with customers to continue the interview at a local deli/coffee shop. At the deli/coffee shop we sat at a small table in the middle of a very crowded noisy business. Without ordering anything for the establishment, the manager proceeded to ask questions and document my answers to around 20 questions over the next hour. We finished with me asking some questions I had prepared, but due to the difficulty I found with hearing, my comfort level with privacy and the amount of time spent at this interview, (around 3 hrs. in total). I did not ask all I had intended to. We parted on good terms with a understanding I would hear from Scottrade if they wanted to do anymore interviewing. The manager was very professional and ask good questions. I found the branch & deli/coffee shop environments very challenging environments to interview in. Maybe that was by Scottrade's design? It was certainly a first for me in my professional career.
    The jury is still out at this time regarding this position and I have not heard back from Scottrade yet.
    no offer or decline made yet.

    Interview

    Looks like a very good company to intern for. Unfortunately, the hiring/interview process can be quite lengthy and take a couple of weeks or up to 2 months. Overall there is a very laid back corporate culture although that might change with new management.
