    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Jersey City, NJ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    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.

    Specialist, Records Management Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Omaha, NE) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and within days an HR recruiter contacted me by email to set up a F2F interview with the hiring manager. I liked that communication was done by email so no playing phone tag. This was the first time in my job search I've had a company go straight to F2F with no phone screen first. My interview was conducted in a conference room off the lobby. I received a follow-up call from HR within the time frame that was communicated to me (about a week and a half) to advise me that they went with another candidate. Although I didn't get the position, this company's recruiting process is by far the best I've experienced in terms of follow through and being treated with appreciation (as you would treat a valued customer!) I would definitely apply there again.

    There was a brief run down on the office space, breaks, team goals, and job specifications. Then there was an extensive conversation (which was very inspiring) about what characteristics will make someone very successful starting out and how to advance to where you would like to be within the company. There was great talk about company culture, beliefs, and standards.
