    Compliance Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Mitsui (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter, who handled the scheduling and logistics. Went three rounds with Mitsui, first with UK Compliance Head and local CEO, second with the Business, third with UK Business Head and UK CAO, fourth was a conference call with the UK Compliance Head and local CEO again.

    Everyone was nice and professional, and the Compliance Head and the CEO went out of their way to ensure that the job expectations were clearly communicated.

    After final round, recruiter discussed compensation expectations. As a result, I decided to withdraw from the process before offer process by advising CEO and thanking him for his time.

    Business Analyst Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Mitsui (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Very brief interviews. The first involved a group+panel interview with local employees (including the GM and other department members). The questions asked were relatively standard - background, interests, resume specific type. The rest of the interview was a case discussion. I had some friends who were interviewing at different times and we all had different cases - ranging from economics to marketing.

    The next interview was with the president of Mitsui Canada, along with some other executives. Given the junior level of the position, I feel that they were just trying to see if there would be a fit and whether the candidate would be a good investment for the long term.
