    Investment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade.

    Interview

    Telephone interview with a recruiter. Overall a routine screening with various questions. Recruiter was late in calling but there no mention of it. Again as a candidate, this is a reflection of company culture about how you treat other people and their time management. She kept typing my answers and was not really paying attention to them. Again, a professional recruiter would walk you through the process and let you know in advance of what they will be doing.

    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.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Jersey City, NJ) in November 2015.

    Interview

    They gave me a phone call first. About 30 minutes of behavioral interview questions. It was pretty informal and was more like a conversation about your experiences and work in teams rather than an actual phone interview. A few days after the phone call, they sent an email asking to fly you into their NJ offices to give you an onsite interview. Interviewed with 4 different managers from different rotations throughout the day and got a call-back a week later with offer/no offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked some financial modeling questions - dcf, dr, irr, wacc.
      Then there were some more behavioral questions- how did you deal with conflict on a team? etc
      Some brain teaser questions too.
