    Commercial Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ED&F Man.

    Interview Details

    Once my resume (sent through ED&F website in response to a traineeship offer) got shortlisted, the company requested a video personal presentation, after which I went further in the interview process with a phone interview with an HR Director, and lastly a panel interview.
    The HR department (based in London) is very professional and kept me regularly updated via email during the whole process.

    (1) Video presentation: 2 min max, the content should be professional and in the format of an interview.
    (2) Phone interview (HR): mostly behavioral questions, no technical at all
    (3) Panel interview: 60 minutes long (20 minutes free business plan pitch, 20 minutes Q&A and 20 minutes candidate questions)

    Note: ED&F declined to cover the expenses incurred for the interviews

    Interview Questions
    • Technical: what is the ROI of the presented business venture, why would there be a market for your product? -- no trap question
      Behavioral: why commodities, why changing career path (vs. previous experiences)?
      Answer Question
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
