    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Jersey City, NJ) in April 2016.

    1 Phone interview, which was mainly a conversation. Then after 2-3 weeks, I came to the Jersey City office for a 1.5 hour interview with 3 different managers. All interviews were very laid back, no coding questions

    Interview Questions

    • Very laid back, expected more computer science related questions, but ended up being mostly about behavioral and past experiences. Eg. most difficult challenge you faced in a group, have you ever had to design a 'software hack' in order to accomplish a task.   Answer Question

    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.
