    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at National Futures Association (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was a campus interview. All the questions are basically behavioral questions. The interviewer is a manager in compliance and he talked about a lot about the job. And they also sent a senior staff waiting outside, before the interview you can have the opportunity to talk to the staff to know more about the position and the other things. The interview last for 30 minutes and he did not ask something technical. It was all typical interview questions and he just tried to know more about you, your goal, your personality.

    Interview

    Scripted, cliche "behavioral" questions, coupled with the interviewer's robotic and vaguely confrontational demeanor, made for a terrible experience. Cannot imagine what they're looking for in asking such nonsense questions. I was presented with virtually no opportunity to showcase my relevant experience/background and how I could apply that to the position, outside of the opening "tell me about yourself" portion of the interview. I suspect a lot of talent never even makes it to upper management for consideration as candidates are rejected for not being able to "think of a time they resolved a conflict quickly and efficiently."

Overall the interviewees were very nice and it was more like a conversation then an interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at National Futures Association (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process involved an informal telephone interview, covering simple background questions, and determining suitability for the role. This stage established both parties wishes to proceed to the in-person interviews. The in-person stage involved a writing task, completed on a laptop that was provided, and based on an unseen topic, relating to NFA's mission. Familiarity with NFA's website was sufficient to prepare for this task, which took one hour. The writing task was followed by an interview with a Manager, who had expertize in my field of experience, and asked a range of questions to determine my understanding of the industry, regulations and NFA. This lasted an hour. I was then interviewed by two staff members, who concentrated more on personality type questions, and determined my suitability to work on an examination team, and adapt to NFA's culture.
