Please describe the interview / hiring process.
I applied online for the oil program, and received a phone call a couple of weeks later. The interviewer was direct, and just asked basic experience questions and why I was interested in Trafigura. I was invited to Houston for in person interviews. I interviewed with 4 traders, 2 were in the room at a time. They were all very nice. They asked experience questions and questions about physical oil trading. They didn't expect you to know every detail, just the basic ideas. Got along with 2 traders very well, couldn't click with the other 2. Didn't get an invite to second round in Geneva. I already had a couple years of physical and financial natural gas trading experience. I think you need to show that you have some good ideas and get the interviewers to like you a lot, as it is very selective.
