    Manager, OTC Derivatives Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at National Futures Association in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Online application and e-mail to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was clearly a very junior HR person reading a script who had limited experience in futures.

    Interview Questions
    • After 25 years in the Futures business including several years on the trading floor, I do not think it appropriate to be asked the very old outdated question "Please give an example of a work conflict and how you resolved it". The HR department is the face to the potential hire. This was not a good experience.   Answer Question

    Staff Auditor I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at National Futures Association in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was kind very basic. First, I had a phone interview where the recruiter asked basic questions, such as what classes have you taken for the position..name a time where you used managerial skills..name a time where you had a conflict and had to resolve it, etc. Then, I had the second interview with 2 Staff Auditors and two managers. You have to write an essay. This second interview is anywhere from 3-4 hours long. Towards the end, it gets tiring and difficult to continue on the conversation with the staff auditors since you cant really veer off subject.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at National Futures Association in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview then one in their office. Second interview has a writing sample and a "snack" which is really an excuse for the employees who go with you to get a bunch of free food and an afternoon off. Very nice people all around. Takes a very long time to hear back from them and you may have to actively seek updates.

    Interview Questions
    • What motivates you? Not a particularly awful question, but completely honest answers (MONEYMONEYMONEEEEHMOOOONEEEEH) are probably not the way to go.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at National Futures Association in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume and cover letter online. I then made an appointment online to schedule the interview. I showed up in professional dress. I participated in a 1 on 1 interview for 30 minutes. It wasn't terribly difficult. It was mostly questions that you would expect in an interview. What's your leadership style? How do you work in a team? The last 5 or 10 minutes was allowed for me to ask questions.
