    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade.

    Interview

    The process was pretty smooth and fast. I filled out and application and was called the next day for a phone interview. After the phone interview, I was sent an assessment. Once I was notified that I passed the assessment, I was asked to come in for an in-person interview. From there, I had to provide thorough employment history and go in for fingerprinting. There was no drug test. Once the fingerprinting results came back, I received an offer letter. Simple. During the interview, you will be asked situational questions, about ten of them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Omaha, NE) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Passed the Phone interview and then 5 forty-five minute interviews from the participating departments in the rotational program. Very long day. Began at 8 with breakfast, then 3 interviews, lunch, 2 more interviews, and then a tour ending at 4. Honestly, I didn't enjoy the interviews at all and neither did many of the people that I interviewed with. Altogether it was 4 hours of interviewing with different people.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Omaha, NE) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I initially scheduled a phone interview with a recruiter which was about 15-30 minutes, really relaxed and nice, they just went over your resume a little, explained the job/compensation/etc, asked a couple situational questions. Then they said I'd be receiving an assessment to try to take within 24 hours, I got it in my email and completed it that night, some math and English questions. Not super easy, but not too tricky. I then received an email to schedule my face to face interview. The face to face interview was really relaxed, the guy who interviewed me had us to a little walking tour first, while also asking if I had questions and telling me more. It's good to have some questions about the company in mind, he kept saying "That's a great question." as if he was surprised I had any. Pleasantly surprised though. Then we went back to an office and there were 5-6 situational behavior question. Make sure to use the STAR method. I hate these questions but having already done the walking tour it definitely lessened my nerves and made it easier and more personable. All in all I think I was there for 45 minutes, I was told I'd hear something in 24-48 business hours. That time passed and I was starting to feel like I hadn't gotten it. I interviewed on a Thursday afternoon, but then I got a call the following Tuesday afternoon, and was offered the job!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Westlake, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    It was about a 30 minute in-person interview with two of the hiring managers. One of them were very polite and responsive, while the other appeared quite uninterested and disengaged. I sent an email to the recruiter and left them a voicemail to thank them for the opportunity, but it has been nearly 3 weeks and I have yet to hear back from anyone. My negative experience has led me to the decision that I would decline they offer even if they decide to hire me.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked that I walk them through my resume, but placed significant emphasis on my brief role as a transaction processing representative with Fidelity. They also asked behavioral questions. E.g., "Tell me about a time you made a mistake".   Answer Question
