    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.
