    FIC Sales Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Commerzbank (Singapore (Singapore)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    It is basically a one-round interview, with 3 separate one-to-one interviews with two HRs and one superior. The questions are basically behavioral based and could be easily answered with some preparations. There are no technical questions as sales is not a technical position. The focus is on the fit between you and the company.

    Sales Trading Off Cycle Internship Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Commerzbank (London, England (UK)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    i have been contacted about a month after i submitted my application. I first had few fit and technical phone interviews. the first one was just a sort of a presentation of my CV and he explained to me the process of recruitment if im successful. 2 days later i had a technical phone interview (mostly questions on VBA, make sure you know your basics) the same day i got an email asking me about my availabilities to pass a numerical and VBA test. he sent me back the link for the numerical test and an excel doc to fill and I had one hour to complete the online test and send back my answers. it's not very hard at all really basic questions. than i got to the final round which was interviews in the trading floor with the team (one on ones) many fit and motivational questions and towards the end a technical interview (as i have a mathematical background: black scholes, pay offs, stochastic calculus..) .
    ps: if you are not european, they don't take in charge sponsorships, mention you eligibility to work in the UK before applying because even though everything goes well it could be a break dealer that was my case.
