    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade.

    Interview

    The recruiter will review your resume to see if you're a good fit for the company, then you'll have a phone interview with HR and a face-to-face interview with associate(s). I had my face-to-face interview with two managers. Do your research about the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was scheduled for a phone interview with the recruiter and then I was given an assessment test and later was called for a face-to-face interview at the office. The initial round was easy and the recruiter was very much impressed with my resume and experience in the same field. However, I got a rejection stating they found someone better.

    Software Developer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Omaha, NE
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Omaha, NE) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Got a call from HR for an immediate job opening. I told them I was interested but would need 10% minimum to move (I make 66). I had a long phone interview, was told that a base salary of 70 would be a 10% bump because they had a good bonus program. Went in for a formal interview, which went not excellent but decent. Got a call from HR later which a verbal offer for 73 was made. I said I would accept it. The written offer was a complete lowball and 180 from the phone conversation, they gave me an offer for 68 (this is all over email). I wrote back saying no, I asked for 10% from the very beginning, and that they offered me more on the phone. I said that I'd be willing to meet in the middle from the difference between their verbal and formal offers (I said 71). They said they would check with their finance team (Then why would she offer me 73 on the phone!?). Response comes back from my hiring manager 2 days later (I haven't head from her since the interview, only communicated with HR). She tells me the offer has been rescinded. I tell her I'm still interested because of the job responsibilities and I'm sure there's a middle ground we can get to (this is all over email). She says no, not even the 68 offer is available. I tried reaching out and calling but got no response.

    TL;DR: They basically lied to me just to try to get me in, then lure me with the responsibilities. I told them 10% from the beginning, they offered me +2k. Complete waste of time. Don't want anything to do with a company that cons applicants like that and tries to reduce verbal offers by 5k once they go into writing.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Rockville, MD) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I have applied through their website and the interview process was very informative as I moved forward. This is one of the best company to work for everyone I spoke to was seem to really love the company and very helpful. My advise is to be yourself and learn the core value of TD Ameritrade and see where you fit in. There were no technical questions most of them were behavioral questions and they asks a lot of questions about your past experiences. If you are passionate about talking to and helping people then this is a good opportunity for you. You can really grow in this company and develop personally and professionally.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by email to set up a time for a phone interview with a TD Ameritrade recruiter. However, the recruiter didn't call at the scheduled time. I left her a voicemail and later sent an email expressing my regret that we were unable to connect. I assume the position was filled because I never heard back. Disappointing, but I will apply again and hope for a different experience next time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Fort Worth, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed up assessment and an in-person interview. The phone interview was a basic interview. Asked me if i traded before, experiences on my resume, and a few STAR questions. The assessment was then followed online and was 45 minutes long testing some of your basic skills. Then I had an in person interview scheduled a week after the phone interview. It was only 6 behavior questions, no questions about my resume. The behavioral questions were difficult and multiple parts. There is a background and credit check but no drug screening.

    Very smooth process. All interviewers were very friendly. The super day can be a little hectic with back to back interviews, but overall, still doable. Interviews were all very behavioral, and mainly asked about past projects/internships in detail.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied and within a few days received an email from an HR recruiter wanting to setup an in-person interview. During that interview I met with two people, a manager and someone closer to the level I would be working. I was told it might take several weeks for me to hear back, but I never heard anything after a few follow up attempts. While the two I talked with were very nice and respectful, I am highly unlikely to pursue TD again after they ignored my application after one interview.
