General Interview Information
Length of Process
Was greeted by a secretary and filled up a document with basic information. Then called in a room (pretty old, small, and even messy) for an interview with the firm's partner.
Basically I got no questions but "Are you willing to go hard?", "Do you want to make money?", "Do you understand the first 10 accounts are split with me (Senior partner)?" and "When can you start?".
On the other hand, I asked as many questions as I could think about (at that moment I was not interested in the position anymore, and used the interview to practice, etc..) until the point of being told how they really work ("very on the limit"). As an example, they charge 3% in and 2% out on commissions per trade. I was supposed to get my own leads from the library and internet resources.
After over an hour of asking question to the senior partner and finishing the interview, she left without saying a word, not very politely and never answered the follow up email (saying no to the job offer). She is there to "make money".
I have nothing against this type of firms, but it is not for me.
