    Junior Trader Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Société Générale.

    Interview

    The interview process was rather unexpected since I had an appointment with the desk manager, but had three interviews in a row with 4 different people from this desk. So that even if it was quite unexpected, was rather efficient. The only remaining interview that I could not do on this day was the psychological test. The desk manager was nice but seemed a little overwhelmed. The interviews with the traders were precise and quite complete with technical questions as well as questions about me. Since the work hours are very long, they emphasize the fact that thepeople at the desk should get on well with each other.

    • One of the interviewers, who was not the one I had an appointement with, asked me at the end of the interview what his name was.   Answer Question

    Interview

    20 minutes wait because the manager was in a meeting; right off the bat a bad sign.. this shows how they don't vale your time. He thought of himself as CEO. Non typical interview and very unprofessional; profanity used while interviewing. Denied offer. Stay away from this place - Very bad hygiene as well.
