    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Omaha, NE) in January 2008.

    Interview

    I went in and filled out an application. I already had securities licenses, so it was very easy for me to get hired. The interviews seemed like a formality more than a question of whether they were going to hire me. At the time, the market was still booming and they were hiring anyone who looked smart enough to do the job and not bomb the interview.

    • describe a difficult situation and how you handled it...   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Offer seemed fair.
