    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at FXCM.

    Interview

    The process starts with a telephone interview with the HR specialist. Once you've been vetted via telephone, you'll be invited to an in-person interview. I was asked to come in for the interview only 2 days after the phone interview.

    The interview consisted of a portion with the HR specialists, a portion with the managers for the department and any other specialized team members (depending on the position applied for).

    I received the job offer 3 days later.

    Interview Questions

    • The managers mostly wanted to get an idea of the kind of personality I had. They didn't ask any questions about my previous work experience or qualifications for the position.   Answer Question

The live interview was composed of two sessions. The first session was a one on one interview with the division vice president. The second session was a panel/group interview with two vice presidents of the department. There was also a computer skills exam and an application exam. After the interview sessions, I was informed that I would be notified within 2 weeks if I qualified for the position.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at FXCM (Jerusalem (Israel)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    A number of tests followed by two interviews - all for a basic entry level job. One test was to test knowledge of Excel and yet their log in did not work on my terminal and then was exceptionally slow and cumbersome in the 2nd terminal. Bit hard to show your proficiency is the computer system was well below par.

    Interviewed by 3 senior managers and their body language and questions indicted that they were going through the motions and not all that interested in really finding out the suitability and potential for the new employee.
