    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FXCM.

    Interview

    Initial communications were with the recruiter and involved general questions about my background, a series of 3 in-person interviews followed. Passion for the FOREX markets is a must for the position. Reading everything on the website, getting a demo account and actively trading yourself is necessary to be a valuable sales associate. The management are friendly and open to being asked questions themselves.

Asked my 5 year plan, why I should be hired, what is their greatest fear in hiring me etc.

You also have the ability to work from home, and depending on how good you are at your job you may be able to work from home consistently. The pay is great if you are close with the management but, if you aren't, then the pay is simply "fair". There is free coffee, tea, and hot chocolate and they provide the utensils, plates, and bowls to employees. As I was part of the IT staff, this particular group of people are young and easy-going and everyone (for the most part) gets along with each other which makes coming to work more enjoyable. And you get to work with different technologies for the most part, just don't expect any datacenter technologies.” – Full Review
