    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at MF Global (London, England (UK)) in May 2011.

    Interview

    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.
