    Reasons for Declining

    The Junior Trader Program provides good training. However, after a week in the company you will definitely feel that this company needs further development. The receptionist disappeared the 3rd day. Junior staff, or interns appear very unprofessional. Very few senior staff were there. The company is a chaos.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Forex Signs (New York, NY) in February 2011.

    Interview

    If you are interviewing for a "currency intern" position it doesn't exist, you are really interviewing for a prop trading position in which you will have to supply 10g of your own capital and they will supposedly then train you for the position. They make a big deal in interview asking you questions and stuff and telling you they don't give a lot of offers. I interviewed with one other kid who was straight out of college, real smart kid but didn't know anything about currency's or fiscal/monetary policy. They offered him the gig also i found out and that's when i knew they will basically take anyone who has the 10 gs

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Forex Signs (New York, NY) in September 2010.

    Interview

    It was pretty chill. Started with a brief intro from every one, then the interviewers started to question the related experiences on their resume. Every one was given an article on currency market intervention of different countries, then the interviewer went around and asked for factual and opinion questions. Ended with asking interviewees to raise any question they have.
