    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ann Arbor, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Ann Arbor, MI) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I had one onsite interview. They asked a question that is nearly impossible for even the most intelligent to respond to in a short period of time. They don't try to convince you to work there. Like most other companies would. I could tell that they could obviously benefit from my background and tried to point that out. It did not make a difference to them. I'm guessing think or swim managers feel like they need to come up with all the great ideas.

    Investor Services Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Omaha, NE
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Omaha, NE) in December 2014.

    Interview

    During the interview process, there was three interviewers and me. It was at first extremely intimidating; however, I thoroughly enjoyed how quickly they made me feel welcome. That was the first interview I had ever laughed in consistently throughout the process. The interviewers seemed to love their jobs and it showed in their faces. They each had a love and joy for the company and never seemed upset upon coming to work.

    Interview Questions

    • I do not remember the specific questions they asked me, but they made sure I had an example to back up every answer. They are looking for the STAR (situation, task, action, result) method when interviewees answer questions.   Answer Question
