    I have been working at Trafigura full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - excellent bonuses
    - fast pace environment forces you to learn quickly
    - ability to move around within the company to different roles

    Cons

    - very cut-throat environment where you see firings and resignings happen often
    - training is not necessarily their forte
    - hours worked are ridiculous... a lot of these positions should be geared towards young professionals w/o families

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - emphasize better training schedule
    - stop cutting costs and hire more help if needed...

    Interview Details

    Applied to Shanghai office. 2 panel interviews with managers and senior traders. Interviewers appeared very unprofessional. The organization of the interview process is a disaster. Some of the interviewers looked like they had no clue what they were supposed to ask. In many cases I had to think of questions to keep the conversation going. I failed to demonstrate my competencies because of the poor questions asked by the recruiter. After two rounds of interview, they told me I had been unsuccessful, asked me to transfer to the local programme which basically is grinding in the back office. Feels like they were banking on me to be transferred the whole time. terrible experience. The HR people from Geneva were nice though, but not really helpful.
