    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Avatar Securities in October 2015.

    Interview

    was a pretty straight forward interview. Ray was my interviewer, was very helpful in saying what would be expected, and what would be offered. Was very pleasant. Office is pretty small but the traders there are really experienced. Most of them are from First NY
