    Market Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hyderābād (India)
    Anonymous Employee in Hyderābād (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Futures First info services pvt.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was through an on-campus recruitment program. After clearing the Aptitude rounds, around 25 of us were called to their office for an entire day of interviews.

    The first round was a Group Activity, which was basically a test of team work, negotiation ability and decision making. 10 people were removed after this round.

    Next, there were 3 rounds of interviews to go through, with most of the questions being HR oriented. We were asked questions like, "What is the area of the room we are in?" or "How many traders are currently trading on this floor", and a few logical questions as well, they were looking more for the approach, ability to be calm under pressure and confidence in oneself, than for the right answer.

    The interview process was quite good, and in the end, the reason they gave me for not taking me was that I did not seem passionate enough for the job. They wanted someone with the hunger and zeal for trading and they could not see it in me.

    All in all, it was a learning experience and being my first interview ever, it was all the more enriching for me.

    Trader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Anonymous Employee in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Futures First info services pvt in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Futures First visited our campus on August 1, 2014.

    For the hiring process there was a written (MCQ) exam that had:
    1:- 15 Calculation related questions (4 minutes) - mostly easy calculations
    2:- 25 Logical Questions (20 mins)
    3:- 25 Maths Calculation Questions (5 mins) - tougher calculations than 1st part, like 29.685 + 48.528 or 27.562 - 31.758 or 14.8 * 5.

    Yes, 29 minute test. If you are still writing in the 30th minute, your paper is cancelled. And yes, they did cancel some papers.
    Main issue was the time. If you are quick in calculations you will get selected. There were also cutoffs for each section.

    Then there were 2 interview rounds in their Gurgaon office.
    They gave us a form with some questions related to us and our character like
    -- What are your strengths and weaknesses?
    -- What do you want to tell us which is not present in your resume?
    -- Give an example of your quantitative skills?
    -- What does a trader do?
    -- What skills do you have that would be valuable for this job?

    The interviews were non-technical. Mainly were math puzzles, questions on approximations and HR questions.
    Like:
    -- Number of squares in a chess board (answer in 30 secs).
    -- Number of triangles or squares (in a given figure) (some 30sec - 1 min).
    -- What would be the area of the room you are sitting in?
    -- Why do you want to join this company?
    -- Some age related question, if this is 1930 and a person's age (who has died) is 1/29 of something something (sorry don't remember). What will be his/her age in 1900 ? (answer in 1 min)

    Interview Questions
    • From my answers the interviewer found that I was not interested (or leave in short time) in tedious and monotonous work. So, he asked me why do I want to do a job as a trader where I have to just look and analyse numbers sitting in front of the computer screen for the whole day, 5 days a week?   Answer Question
