    Negative Experience
    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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Omaha, NE) in July 2017.

    Interview

    After applying online I got an email a few days later to set up a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 30 mins and was a brief overview of the posistion followed by some basic behavioral questions. The interviewer was very nice and it was basically a conversation getting to know me. After the phone interview I was emailed a link to take an online test that's timed for 45mins. It's a basic knowledge test. After passing that I was sent in for a face to face interview. That interview consisted of about 6 questions and they are all behavioral/situational and they go by the STAR system so it's important to understand that. But again the interview was very easy going again. About 4 days later I was called back with a job offer and set up to get my background check and fingerprinting done for the posistion.
