    Trader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at World Trade Securities (New York, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I was emailed to interview here, thinking it was a normal, salaried trading position but then found out that it was nothing more than a typical prop shop. Wherein you're asked to put up your own money up front for your licenses and your individual trading account. A waste of my time.

    Reasons for Declining

    Equities Trader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at World Trade Securities (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in August 2009.

    Interview

    The two managers interviewed me for about 40 minutes, asking why do I think I would be good at trading, what do I know about this type of trading, trading psychology, etc. I got the sense that they were a fairly knowledgeable and professional team, but not without a tinge of macho/bravado that traders often have. A question I particularly remember is: "If you could play a game just once with two choices: take $1 or have a 1/10 chance of getting $10, what would you choose? How about $1 vs 1/10 chance of $15? How about $10000 vs 1/10 chance of $100k?"
