    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FXCM (Melbourne (Australia)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and they attached the employment application form in the email. I was interviewed by 3 people and one of them is the team lead. it happened in Melbourne.

    they let me introduce me first then asked me lots of questions. they let me compare stock trading and forex trading and asked me how I'm going to encourage people to invest in FX instead of stocks. they also let me forecast the trend of AUD. as i mentioned that i was into texas poker and because of that, i decided that i will be a great investment material. They let me apply something i learnt from playing texas poker to the analysis of AUD.

    they discussed financial news with me and asked some behavioural questions relating to customer services.

    I'm still waiting for them to get back to me. I am not sure how did i go but i found the questions were a bit tricky, not as easy as other people mentioned.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    First round interview was over the phone- Pretty easy. What do you know about the company, why did you chose your major and tell me why you think you are good for this position. Second interview was at the office: Met with my potential boss and VP of Sales. They were very rude and didn't give to the time of day to answer question. Asked my 5 year plan, why I should be hired, what is their greatest fear in hiring me etc.
