Difficult Interview

FENICS Junior QA Analyst Interview

FENICS Junior QA Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GFI Group in February 2013.

Interview Details – I went through a recruiter, and then about three rounds of interviews that day. The first was my manager, who at the time, seemed easy going and pleasant and explained the position pretty clearly of what I was going to be doing. Had I any experience in the coding, they would've given me a test, but they were aware at the time of the interview I had not coded in awhile. The second interviewer was my manager's former manager, and GFI's QA manager. They were intimidating as hell. They explained the environment was fast paced and pretty much told me that a large company like GFI would be able to weed me out quickly if I wasn't doing my work. I personally don't feel that was necessary, but I chalked it up to nerves on my part. The last person I interview is pretty much running the office. When asking me if I knew anything about financials, I explained that i didn't, and they pretty much shut down, at least in my opinion. It made me feel like I wasted their time showing up, and I walked out of my interview feeling Like I bombed it.

The recruiter called me the next day to tell me I got it, which blew my mind. haha

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate my salary up a little, but not to where I wanted to be.

Also, I didn't have much time for a decision. They pretty much gave me 24 hours to make a decision before they passed over me, so that stunk.

Broker Trainee Interview

Broker Trainee
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at GFI Group.

Interview Details – Very relaxed, not a lot of formal questions around the actual job. More of a discussion to see if you would "fit" with the company/personality of a broker trainee. They like to hear that you're proactive and not afraid to speak with clients/go to events/etc. They want to see that you can work hard -- even when you're pushed hard or not treated particularly nicely

Interview Question – Tell me why I should hire you for this job? What in your past experience is relevant?   Answer Question
