    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade in August 2017.

    Interview

    Hiring Manager would not stop talking about himself during my interview. I basically learned nothing about the job. He then started talking about his time in the Philippines as a sexpat which made me extremely uncomfortable. I didn't get the job so I basically wasted an hour of my time listening to an old guy brag...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Omaha, NE) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Whole process took probably 6 weeks. Applied and within about 2 weeks had initial interview scheduled. Phone interview that lasted ~30 minutes. About 1 week later was contacted about additional interviews. There were 3, 1 face-to-face on the Omaha campus, 2 via WebEx. The first WebEx guy was pretty rude and asked some borderline questions that appeared to be looking for ways to disqualify me for things like family and age (really, the year I graduated from HS is integral to this job?). The other 2 were fine. My only issue was that the WebEx had a hard stop at 30 minutes, so we got disconnected in the middle of a discussion.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I was emailed to schedule a phone interview for the trainee position. It was scheduled for a week after the email was received, and I never received the phone call. I emailed the person telling them that they had not called me and he responded with "I was pulled in to a meeting, I will TRY and call tomorrow at the same time." This was the most unprofessional thing I have ever heard. He did not even email me to ask if I could re-schedule prior to his meeting. TD Ameritrade is a great company and I expected a better interview process. The following day he still did not call, and I received no email to re-schedule.
