    I was interviewed on-campus for TRADER role at Futures First
    Interview Process
    Test HR Interview
    Round 1

    Test

    Duration
    5 Minutes
    No. of Questions
    30 questions
    Interview Experience
    There was no shortlisting as such on the basis of resume. Everyone was allowed to sit for 1st round which was a written test. In this round we were supposed to solve 30 questions of calculation in 5 minutes. I think those who managed to solve above 20 were shortlisted for next round which was an aptitude test.

    There were 30 questions in 30 minutes. Aptitude portion was a bit tougher than all the previous tests of other companies. The questions were numerical calculations and quantitative aptitude. I could solve 22 questions only. People who managed to solve above 15 were shortlisted. 35 people were shortlisted after this round.
    Round 2

    HR Interview

    Interview Experience
    After the written test I went through two rounds of interview. The questions were not company specific but were very generic. They wanted to explore the personality of the candidate. The questions asked included:

    Questions about my strength and weaknesses
    Ability to handle pressure and crisis situations
    Examples where I have worked in a team and had shown leadership skills

    As I had a good CGPA they grilled me a lot by saying that I was not suited for the company and asked me to justify my stand and why I felt I would be suitable for the company.
    Overall I believe that if a candidate wants to get into the company he should be able to justify why he wants to be a part of the company. Also he should be able to quote examples of teamwork and leadership.

      Round 1

      Other Interview

      Interview Experience
      First round of interview will be some basic stuff like multiplication of 3 by 3 digits ,no big divisions. One should be confident enough to answer the question.
      Interview Tips
      Brush up your basic calculation skills. Watch placement grid. (An initiative by NIT Jaipur students where they will upload videos about their experience)
      Round 2

      Stress Interview

      Interview Experience
      Basically, they want to see your reaction in challenging time. I had no clue about trade mogul and I became a bit tensed in second round, which is why I think I didn't get placed.
      Interview Tips
      Always read about companies few days before sitting in it. There is an event TRADE MOGUL which is conducted by future first. Do participate in it.

        General Tips
        This company had the lowest pointer cutoff among those that came in the first two months. It was 5 last time. So almost 400 sat for first round and in first round they gave 30 basic mathematics calculations which one has to do in only 5 minutes. 70 got shortlisted for next round which had cat LEVEL APTI questions. It had 30 questions. If you are seriously interested in stock markets then this is the place worth trying for.

            Round 1

            Test

            Interview Experience
            The company’s selection process was open for all candidates who had joined the institute through JEE (Joint Entrance Examination). They conducted a written test which was purely based on testing one’s ability to do quick calculation and proficiency in analytical skills. The test had around 30 questions which were to be solved in thirty minutes. Thereafter the selected candidates where asked to go through another round of written test with a higher level of difficulty. The questions could be answered easily if you have had sufficient practice of mathematics.
            Round 2

            HR Interview

            Interview Experience
            After the written test there were two sets of personal interview taken by two different panels. They were checking my personality and my ability to fit into their team. They asked me about my extra-curricular activities and how it has shaped my thought process and my personality. They were really particular about one question which they asked from all the candidates – ‘Why do you think you are more suitable for the company than other candidates?’ They also asked me few generic HR questions about me, my strengths and weaknesses etc.
