    Market Risk Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Société Générale.

    Interview Details

    I applied online via SocGen website and got a phone call after 3 weeks where we scheduled phone interview 1 week later. The interview was with the team leader and apart from my profile the questions were rather technical. I was supposed to get feedback in couple of days, this was postponed twice though (I think they were waiting was someone better despite claiming it is an urgent hire). After the decision, they did not give any feedback. The interview was carried in both English and French (although the position did not require any French and it is not my native language either).

    Junior Trader Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Société Générale.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was rather unexpected since I had an appointment with the desk manager, but had three interviews in a row with 4 different people from this desk. So that even if it was quite unexpected, was rather efficient. The only remaining interview that I could not do on this day was the psychological test. The desk manager was nice but seemed a little overwhelmed. The interviews with the traders were precise and quite complete with technical questions as well as questions about me. Since the work hours are very long, they emphasize the fact that thepeople at the desk should get on well with each other.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the interviewers, who was not the one I had an appointement with, asked me at the end of the interview what his name was.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Société Générale.

    Interview Details

    I was selected to interview after submitting my resume through a school-sponsored database. I attended their super day over the phone because I couldn't fly out at the time (Snowpocalypse '14). I only had two interviews that lasted about 20 minutes each. The first was more of a judge of fit (why do I want to work here, what do I think I'd be doing for them, etc.) and the second picked at my qualifications to be a good legal intern (how do I think I'm qualified for this position). They got back to me in about a week with their decision.
