    Credit Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alpha FX (London, England) in July 2020.

    Interview

    The process itself was easy and surprisingly fast. I had an interview with both the Head of Credit Risk and a Senior Analyst, however the interview itself was very dry with both interviewers looking not very interested during the process even though I was told I was the first candidate to be interviewed. I was asked a couple of technical questions however they were easy.

    Portfolio Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Alpha FX.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The recruitment process consisted of a first interview with the CEO, and a second interview with the Commercial Director. Both interviews focused more on personality and motivation fit, rather than knowledge of the industry. Alpha know the type of candidates that they want, so expect an open, flowing discussion to test your communication and reasoning skills. Both Morgan and Jon are very open and honest, and want to make sure that there is a good fit both ways, so ask any questions that you have. Feedback was prompt and detailed, and I was very impressed by the recruitment process overall.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alpha FX (London, England) in March 2018.

    Interview

    A short interview of 30 minutes with 2 people. First interviewer was 'good cop' and the second one 'bad cop'. They were really good at explaining the role but not so much about the company itself. Job spec as really vague and they didn't offer feedback.

    Alpha FX Response

    11 Apr 2019 – Alpha FX

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and we’re sorry to hear you had a negative experience.

    Where possible, we like candidates to meet with more than one person at interview stage, as we think it enables everyone to make a more well-rounded judgement on whether the role is right. Inevitably everyone’s personality and approach is different, however we don’t have a good cop bad cop routine.

    We are also sorry to hear you didn’t feel the feedback given to you was sufficient. We provide feedback to all candidates regardless of whether they are successful, so if you would like us to provide further feedback, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

    Thank you again for your feedback and we wish you all the best in your next role.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Alpha FX (London, England) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I first met with the headhunter to see if I could be a good fit for the company.
    After that I had 2 rounds of interviews, the first with the CEO and the second with the Head Portfolio Manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Not a technical interview, you just have a chat with them and talk about previous experiences, what motivates you, where you want to be in 5 years time etc. At Alpha they are really careful about the personality and the attitude of individuals, so you just need to be smart, motivated, a team player and get along with the interviewer.   Answer Question
