The process took a day - interviewed at MF Global in July 2009.

Graduate Intake Interview

Graduate Intake
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at MF Global in May 2011.

Interview Details – Absolutely disastrous. The company outsources a recruiting agency who has no understanding of what roles they are hiring for. They read questions off a list that was written beforehand and just type the applicant's answer.

would never work for companies who seems to care so little about recruiting.

Interview Question – When did you have to go an extra mile?   Answer Question
