    Interview

    Very basic, asking about resume and experience. Interview was more of a dialogue. First I spoke with the general recruiter, who then scheduled follow up interviews with different managers to see who was the best fit. Everyone was very nice during the process.

    Very straight forward interview questions , very nice and easy going people. You don't need to go in prepared just go in and tell them the truth about you and your resume and be confident about it! The most difficult question was what I knew about their company so be prepared for that.

    Interview

    All phone interviews, all behavioral. I got it through my college's career website and they had me interview for many different departments. It was pretty laid back, needed to know resume inside out and be able to walk through it. Got the offer within a week.

    Broker Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Interview Questions

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

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Offer seemed fair.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade.

    Interview

    Hiring manager was not very interested in my background, just wanted to know if I could make lots of calls to existing TD clients everyday. Told me it was easy gig and I could leave at 2pm if I hit my goals. This turned out to be untrue. Also, had phone interviews with Regional Mgr., who talked most if the time and told me how easy it was to make $100k. Also, turned out to be untrue.

    Senior Quantitative Risk Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    1. Phone interview with HR, very impressive recruiting process, keeps you in touch etc. This phone screen lasted 45 minutes. No technical phone screening by the hiring manager.

    2. Then the 1 hr. interview in person with 4 people, they were able to squeeze a lot of questions in that hour, so that was impressive.

    3. The team was very well knit, exceptionally cordial, and I could see the team work environment. But the rigorous skills in the team were abysmal, I mean one of the worst I have ever seen (well, I have interviewed and worked with some Wall street type firms, so take that into consideration), and not a single decent question came up, and basically whatever questions they had, I answered every question, and if I have to I guess, I think I had more education than the 4 people combined who interviewed me had and I am not exaggerating, and also I have as much experience as the boss of the hiring manager, I could read between the lines and they felt a lack of common ground between me and them.

    4. I knew I was not going to be the best fit, but I was still interested since this is a good company, and with a great vibe and a very positive work environment. I saw everyone there was very happy and enjoying their work, and while I was not too impressed with the interview content itself, they more than made up for it in their professionalism and how they conduct business and I give them a thumbs up even though no offer :)

    I wish them well.
