    Investment Consultant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Scottrade.

    Interview

    It was the worst interview experience that I have been through in my job hunt by far. They are incredibly slow and do not have any procedures or communication. After my 3rd interview they didn't even let me know that I did not get the job or if I did. I emailed and no response after 5 weeks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Scottrade.

    Interview

    Applied online on the career section. After a week or so, received an email from the recruiter to schedule a phone interview. The interview lasted around 30-45 minutes. When I answered the call, I could tell that this was going nowhere, and going to be a waste of time. The recruiter sounded completely uninterested, aloof, and standoffish. Better basic questions, no surprises. Received an email a few days later saying that I was no longer being considered for the position.

    Investment Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Scottrade (Virginia Beach, VA).

    Interview

    I was hired during college, hopes and dreams turned into dissappointment. I worked at Scottrade for over 10 years, I know I wasted my time and energy. I learned enough in my internship to work anywhere else. I stayed with Scottrade because I really believed they were the best way for the common man/woman to invest and grow their wealth. What I learned is Scottrade is a great place for the common man/woman to risk their life savings with delayed quotes and canceled bids/aks. Poor trade execution and no desire to look out for clients best interests. THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS BRINGING IN MONEY. if they lose their money its the clients fault....

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    First HR, then the hiring manager. When I met with the hiring manager, there were two people questioning me at the same time and it was pretty high-pressure. It was a thorough interview and I can't say it wasn't effective.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Scottrade (Austin, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted a resume and cover letter online and answered some questions on their website. I had a behavioral interview with the recruiter. She just asked basic question that weren't specific to this postion. She also went over my resumer. Then, I had an interview with the branch manager. Before I met with him, I had to complete a sales key assessment. This went over how willing or proud I would be to be a salesman. The interview with the manager was longer. He went over the job & asked questions to see how I would fit into it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Scottrade (Sterling Heights, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied to Scottrade online and got an email back within two days. I was quite surprised at how fast they got back to me. They wanted to set up a phone interview with me. I responded with my available times, but did not hear back. I responded again with a specific time, and got no response. Sure enough, I got a call from them on my desired time, but I had no confirmation that it was going to take place. The phone interview was full of basic questions, such as tell me about a time when... etc.
