    Junior Trader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Haven, CT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Maverick Trading (New Haven, CT) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Watched 50 minutes of videos before I found out they want $2000 to proceed to"hiring" stage (was stoked 'till then)...very disappointing, not just because I don't have the money and thought I'd be a perfect candidate, but because of the delay in revealing this vital piece of info which feels deceptive.

    Trader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Maverick Trading (Las Vegas, NV) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process started out with a "while I have you on the phone" type of call. The caller divulged that the risk deposit wasn't just 5K rather it was a 4:1. For example someone trading at their 400K level would have to have 160K on deposit with them. The training and initial deposit was not 5K as the video pointed out but became 6K. The caller wanted to know my financial situation up front. I lied to him and told him I would have it at the end of training. He sent an email and told me to contact when I had the money.
