    Technology Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at FXCM in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through university. This was for the Pro group, so it is NOT part of the retail division. Exchanged a few responses with HR, who was really awesome. I then did an on site interview at their NY location, and did two back to back interviews. One was with the Head of Production and the other with an Engineer in the Production group. Questions were mostly about my software development experience and a few questions about TCP/ IP.

    Negotiation Details
    The salary isn't great, and they don't pay for your commute. However, it is a GREAT experience, and I've learned a lot about FX and programming since I've been here. Everybody in the Pro group is extremely qualified at what they do, and have had significant experience in FX.

The second session was a panel/group interview with two vice presidents of the department. There was also a computer skills exam and an application exam.

    FX Broker Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at FXCM in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was a very simple interview that consisted of basic fit questions asked by a member of HR. Then, she hands you a document highlighting the mornings market news and your asked to read it. After that, the hiring manager comes and introduces himself and asks further fit questions and also walks through your resume. Finally, he asks you a few basic questions about the market to gauge if you follow the market. As long as you brush up on what's going on in the economy starting a week before, particularly anything related to the currency market, and can articulate yourself, you'll do just fine.

    Market Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at FXCM in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    First FXCM called me for the initial phone screen in which they asked me about my resume. They told me some administrative things such as the salary and the hours/week that the position entailed. Afterwards, they set up an on-site interview with me for the following week. This interview was actually rather tough. First, I spoke with an HR representative who asked about my resume, how I heard about the position, and why I thought I was suitable for this position; she also gave me something to read in 10 minutes and I was to be asked about it by someone else. Then I spoke with the person whose team I would actually be working for. He asked me about the article what I thought it meant, what has happened recently in the markets, what is going on in Europe, what affects interest rates, about different types of analyses, spoke to me in a foreign language in which I responded, and basically tested to see if I knew how different markets affected others around the world. Sometimes he asked me about specific examples, but I did not know those in particular. Overall, it was a pretty challenging, yet positive, interview process in which I had to think about my answers quite a bit.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at FXCM in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was relatively easy, and because the San Francisco office is small, I was only interviewed by a few staff. I was treated well throughout the interview process and got a good feel for the company during the onsite interview. The phone interview was relatively short, and more based on experience than personality.
