Interview Details – I talked with the Human Resources department first then I interviewed with my trading coach. The interview was mostly about why I like trading so much. They want to know that you are 100% committed because if don't love the work then you will most likely not make it. The office is very laid back and traders can pretty much do what they want as long as they make money.
