Very Easy Interview

Trader Interview

Trader
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at World Trade Securities in February 2013.

Interview Details – I was emailed to interview here, thinking it was a normal, salaried trading position but then found out that it was nothing more than a typical prop shop. Wherein you're asked to put up your own money up front for your licenses and your individual trading account. A waste of my time.

Interview Question – Do you like sports? (Wanted someone who likes competition...?)   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – It wasn't a paid position. All commission.

Equities Trader Interview

Equities Trader
Montreal, QC (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at World Trade Securities in August 2009.

Interview Details – The two managers interviewed me for about 40 minutes, asking why do I think I would be good at trading, what do I know about this type of trading, trading psychology, etc. I got the sense that they were a fairly knowledgeable and professional team, but not without a tinge of macho/bravado that traders often have. A question I particularly remember is: "If you could play a game just once with two choices: take $1 or have a 1/10 chance of getting $10, what would you choose? How about $1 vs 1/10 chance of $15? How about $10000 vs 1/10 chance of $100k?"
