Financial Sales Executive Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at EDF Trading in November 2013.
Interview Details – Since the company is currently expanding its asian market, thus the whole application-phone interview-face to face interview process was rather efficient. The HR called me right after I sent out my application and CV. The teleinterview was rather normal, and it was roughly 20 mintues. Basically just asking questions based on my CV and work experiences. At the end of the interview, HR told me I pass the first path and arrange the face-to-face interview for the day after.
Well, the actual interview was done by a department manager, who was slightly late. The overall atmosphere was generally nice. Asked about non-academic achievements in the shcool, give some evidence why u think u could be a team player.
