    I worked at ICAP plc

    Pros

    Every day at ICAP was very exciting. It is a work hard play hard type of environment. It is challenging but you have more than enough resources to accomplish and excel at your tasks.

    Cons

    When the business was not good, it wasn't good for anyone. Also the fast paced environment translated to high stress at times. Definitely not for the weak-hearted.

    Broker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jersey City, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in Jersey City, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at ICAP plc in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I made sure to fill out the online application carefully, and did research on the questions. I was contacted next day to schedule a phone interview.

    Phone Interview: 15-20min. Understand what an inter-dealer broker does (as opposed to sales/trading at a bank) and why you'd prefer broking over trading. Might ask what news you've been following that affects their business, what their shares are trading at, your opinion on the financial markets. Brokers often entertain clients, so have something interesting about yourself which is not on your resume, like something you do for fun. Be ready for a solid mix of personality, why you're a good fit for this position (be specific), and a test of market related knowledge questions.

    Superday/assessment centre: Group exercise, math tests (x2), and panel interview. Be ready to do currency conversion; currency triangles. Don't sweat the math tests too much, if you did well on the SATs you'll do fine.
    *make sure you show personality during the interview-they don't want introverted brokers
