    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Mitsui (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter, who handled the scheduling and logistics. Went three rounds with Mitsui, first with UK Compliance Head and local CEO, second with the Business, third with UK Business Head and UK CAO, fourth was a conference call with the UK Compliance Head and local CEO again.

    Everyone was nice and professional, and the Compliance Head and the CEO went out of their way to ensure that the job expectations were clearly communicated.

    After final round, recruiter discussed compensation expectations. As a result, I decided to withdraw from the process before offer process by advising CEO and thanking him for his time.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mitsui (Kolkata (India)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Mitsui & Co Managers asked me to introduce myself and many personal questions like if I have a girlfriend, or if I know Bengali language and how many times a year I travel to Kolkata. Interview lasted for more than 1 hour including questions from the Japanese guy. The Japanese guy was very courteous and didn't ask silly questions if how many times a year I visit Kolkata or not. Mitsui in Kolkata is made up of Stupid people who are only die hard Bengalis. They don't need Skills or Experience or Exposure but what all they want is Bengali persons in their Kolkata branch only. Please do not attend Mitsui interview in Kolkata if you are not Bengali because they are partial, very partial.
