Application Details

I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Breakwater Trading in September 2011.

Interview Details

I received an email early in the week asking to come in. Upon arriving, the receptionist and HR person did not even arrive for another 1 hour. After spending 5 minutes looking at my resume, the Trader I was interviewing with said I had not of the qualifications and knowledge for the position and I had wasted my time getting up early and coming in. Why couldn't he see my resume beforehand!!!

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Breakwater Trading in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    It was just a quick interview with one of the senior traders. Asked some basic questions about my education and investing experience, then my knowledge of markets and bonds specifically. I didn't have a ton of detailed knowledge but apparently that didn't really matter. Took an hour maybe and then met with someone from HR and that was it.

    Interview Details

    Very relaxed interview. Met with three senior traders, all were very nice and personable. Very straight forward questions, no "HR" trick questions. Great office, big operation, seemingly a great place for traders
