    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Fullerton, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Met the senior manager/ recruiter at my school's career fair and the same senior manager/ recruiter did a phone screen with me before the interview proper. Lived a ways away from the office in San Diego so my interview was over the phone. The interview was with two managers simultaneously.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Fort Worth, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed up assessment and an in-person interview. The phone interview was a basic interview. Asked me if i traded before, experiences on my resume, and a few STAR questions. The assessment was then followed online and was 45 minutes long testing some of your basic skills. Then I had an in person interview scheduled a week after the phone interview. It was only 6 behavior questions, no questions about my resume. The behavioral questions were difficult and multiple parts. There is a background and credit check but no drug screening.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time you exceeded a customer's expectations. Name a time your leadership ability benefited the whole team. How do you measure success? How do you mean goals? Name a time you worked in a group with people with different work ethics, how did you move the group towards the goal, what role did you play? Name a time you had to deal with an upset/mad customer.   Answer Question

    Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied and within a few days received an email from an HR recruiter wanting to setup an in-person interview. During that interview I met with two people, a manager and someone closer to the level I would be working. I was told it might take several weeks for me to hear back, but I never heard anything after a few follow up attempts. While the two I talked with were very nice and respectful, I am highly unlikely to pursue TD again after they ignored my application after one interview.
