    Manager, Lean Six Sigma Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I had the worst experience interviewing with TD Ameritrade. The team I interviewed was spread out all over the nation. The interview was via video conference. The interviewers were asking all sorts of questions, some that I thought were borderline confidential and shouldn't be asked. I thought some of the interviewers got into their roles by mistake as they sounded juvenile. I will never interview with them again, ever.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade in July 2016.

    Interview

    The recruiter contacts you for the first interview and if you do well he or she will schedule you to take a quiz to assess if you are likely go pass the series 7 and 63 license exam, which are requirements yo obtain the job. Once you complete the assessment which is roughly about 45 min and depending on how well you did they will call you for a follow up interview which is usually with two or more managers. If you're applying for a foreign language position part of the interview will be in that language so I gives the manager an estimate of how well you can speak the language.

    Interview

    Terrible. They dont really act like they care. They are just going through motiins. They yawn and make you feel like cattle. They are like robots. It drags on and on and on. They have a hard time making a decision. They should just man up and tell you things.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade.

    Interview

    It was a not bad experience. I spoke to a recruiter at a career fair. Applied online and was called. Went onsite and had three interviews with three managers. Very comfortable. They did not ask anything technical. Mostly just went over my resume. They wanted to see who got into the culture.

    Business Development Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty straightforward albeit redundant. A total of 7 interviews for a position I believe might require 4, but the departments were always prompt with their calls. I had one reschedule request but it was fulfilled two days later so not a big deal. Nothing out of the ordinary, though be prepared to sell yourself.
