    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tradition Financial Services (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in October 2015.

    Applied by email, and got an email forming me that I was invited to an interview in two weeks time. I was interviewed by two senior or managers type guys. They asked some normal questions, like what do you know about this company and this position. I felt one of the interviewer liked me but the other one didn't. I was asked if I got other offer why I would chose them, and I didn't performed well at this question. The whole process is easy. I hadn't heard from them since then.
