Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade

Interview

The interview process was not a long one at all. I only went through two interviews before I had an offer extended to me. I had heard from someone on the inside that sometimes they make you go through a third interview if they are still unsure about you. However, this was not the case for me. The people I interviewed with were very kind and laid back. The second interview was with two managers who were straight forward but also very kind and showed their personalities a little as well. I even misunderstood a question they gave me and they let me answer the question again after they corrected me. One thing that was very helpful during the interview process was that they gave you hints about what sort of questions they would ask in the interview and also gave a helpful link to a website that shared tips on how to best answer interview questions.

Difficult Interview

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade

Interview

3 rounds of interviews. First round was a simple phone interview and second was video interview. Third one was 2 managers in a video interview with questions like “describe a time you dealt with a difficult customer and how did you handle it” using the SMART method. Overall very thorough interview process but everyone was easy to talk to and made you feel comfortable.

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade in May 2022

Interview

After submitting a resume, I was contacted by a recruiter via Manpower, and they scheduled a screening interview. The questions were easy, like any screening interview, and they emphasized the STAR format. At the end of the screening interview, they asked when I would be available for an online interview with a hiring manager. The hiring manager was very pleasant, had been with the company a long time, and seemed genuinely nice and invested in the company and process. There were 6 STAR-based questions. They also discussed the 2-year "agreement" that the company "requires" and how it doesn't need to be in the same role. The company fills roles internally, and the Financial Customer Service Rep is the entry position with the company (for many positions). Truthfully, I don't think I will get an offer because the hiring manager didn't ask about my availability, possible fit with the company, explicitly stated they were not allowed to discuss salary, and provided zero feedback. Overall, I think the process would be easier in person or for those who are outgoing.
