Trade Processor Interview

Trade Processor
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Citco Canada Inc. in January 2013.

Interview Details – I was being invited for an interview for this position by a job agent. The interview consisted of a phone interview, in person interview, MS Office, IQ test, spelling test by the agent and a panel interview (2 interviewers) by the manager and supervisor of the company. Mostly they ask about general questions about your past experience, weaknesses, the company, why you want to leave your current company, what your boss says about you, and a tell me about a time question regarding attention to detail. My suggestion for the interview is to research the company and the position, let them know what this position is all about.
Also, please be prepared if you have a time gap on your work history as they might ask for some clarifications. In addition, they might ask you for your commitment in case you are hired by them.

If you are someone who like to interact with people more than working with data (i.e. this position is more to a data entry position), please make sure that you can provide a good answer as the interviewers might ask about this.

Overall, the interviewer (the manager) was very skillful in conducting or directing the interview. She may dig deep for clarification on some answers which you have provided to them so just be prepared and don't panic. Some of the questions that she was asking caught me off guard a bit, especially about the commitment question.

Interview Question – If you get hired by us, how do we know that you are not going to accept another position from a different company within 3-4 months of your employment?
There will be less interaction with people or clients in this position as most of the duties are related to data entry. How will you cope with this?
  Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I was applying for a position which I like better in a different company. Since I came close to the last stage of hiring process, I decided to walk by faith and wait for their final decision even though there is no guarantee of an offer at the moment.

Very Easy Interview

Investor Relations Specialist Interview

Investor Relations Specialist
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Citco Canada Inc. in November 2009.

Interview Details – I got a call from a HR manager, I didnt seem to be a good fit as I was looking for more of a front office career but I was found on a job site and contacted. In the middle of the conversation the HR manager said she had to run to a meeting and said she would call me back that day. I heard nothing back. A week later a different HR rep called me saying she found my profile and contacted me (independent from the first instance). I was brought in for an interview, and it was with the Senior HR Rep from the first call and then a Manager and a VP. I had to write a draft letter to a client, and then some basic math. The interview was more of a chat, then a real interview. It seemed like they were more interested in my personality then skills. I left the interview and got a call and offer on my drive home. Interview process is easier than an eye exam (assuming you are not blind).

Interview Question – None.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I accepted because I was in the middle of transitioning my skill set, and the finance industry was in decline and opportunities were difficult to come by.
