- No OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Investors Capital Holdings (New York, NY) in September 2010.
I applied to the Broker Trainee Program through an job searching website. After about a week I got a phone call asking me to come in for a personal interview in their offices in New York. The interview itself had no technical aspect to it. I spoke to three of their Senior Brokers within about an hour's time. Each interview was basically an overview of their culture. They definitely follow the whole "work hard / play hard" mantra. It was a fun interview because it was very relaxed, they're very accommodating in that regard. The only downside is that they definitely tend to take over the conversation a bit, giving you very limited windows where you can speak out and show them why'd you fit in.

The process took 1 day – interviewed at Investors Capital Holdings (New York, NY) in May 2010.
It takes a certain personality to thrive and to prosper at Investors Capital let alone in the retail brokerage business generally. A lot of questions were qualitative to probe whether I had the drive and resilience that would not add to the high volume of turnover that they've experience from prior candidates. "Do you have any background in sports or anything competitive?" and, "if given an offer could you see yourself working in the long-term for us?" were examples of this line of questioning. Hung in their for over a year and couldn't handle the low immediate rewards for the high volume of work entailed with the job.
- Pitch yourself to me and tell me why I should hire you. 1 Answer
No negotiation. Very small weekly stipend.
