    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at OSTC (Mumbai (India)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    There were 5 rounds to the entire process. First was the Psychometric Test which was a normal aptitude based test, knowing the personality of the candidate. Then, they invite you for a Math and Aptitude test which again consists of various exercises to ascertain the speed, accuracy and art of remembering data. Math test had simple, easy number crunching questions with 5 minute per test, there were 5 such tests making it a 25 minute test. Please do read the instructions properly before starting the test. Next, was a video interview, which will ask 3 basic questions and you have to record the video for 90-120 seconds per question. In my case the questions were, 1. Why do you want to be a trader? 2. What have you done till now to make yourself a good trader? 3. Why OSTC?. Next, they invited for the assessment interview where they asked us to introduce ourselves through some flash cards and the qualities written in them. They introduced us to the company and the role and there was a 15-20 mins Q&A Session followed by a session of Simulation Games.
    Finally, they invite you for a Personal Interview with the Director and one of his juniors.

    Junior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumba, Nord-Kivu (Democratic Republic of Congo)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OSTC (Mumba, Nord-Kivu (Democratic Republic of Congo)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Initially the process worked very smoothly, after the Cv review, there was a psychometric test and then an aptitude one. After that there was a video interview, after which we were called in for an assessment day.

    The interview process was said to last 5 hours but it took way longer. The first assessment was a trading activity and the interview with the manager was very good.

    But the interview with director was very very harsh, he was asking random questions about market and expected to know all of them. Very stringent. The questions asked made no sense to the work conducted. I was asked to recite Alphabets and then recite them in reverse order as well

    After that We were to given the result in the next 5 days, but it did not come and even after constant follow ups, they did not respond or declare a given final result

    This just keeps the job seeker hanging in the middle of nowhere.

    Junior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai (India)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at OSTC (Mumbai (India)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online on their website. After 3-4 days they sent me an email where I have given psychometric tests. The test was very simple. The question asked in that exam was your personality-based questions. On the very next day, they sent me an email and told me to book a slot for a maths test. In maths test, they gave me 5 online based calculations games and very simple pattern recognition but if you lose before time expires then your game will be over. So keep that in mind. Be calm and cool while calculating the values, because of one wrong you will be rejected. I did not clear that exam so I don't know about the next procedure.
    I want to tell the company's management that they have to give 2nd chance to rejected peoples. Even they lose in those games but everyone deserves 2nd chance. Maybe in the future, if some selected persons don't know about technical analysis and rejected people will know stock market/commodity market/technical analysis/fundamental analysis/what is chart pattern/what is the trendline/how to do the technical analysis properly.
    just because they lose in maths games that do not mean they don't deserve 2nd chance.

    Market Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Delhi (India)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at OSTC (New Delhi (India)).

    Interview

    Starts with a basic personality test and then a quantitative test. All good till here, the real deal starts in the "Face-to-Face Interview"
    In the interview, they didn't ask me anything related to profile but rather asked me to recite A-Z in reverse order for them as selection criteria.
    It was supposed to be a technical round and then they were not even aware of the Fed rate cut which was announced in the last Fed meeting.
    Also, there is no career growth as a trader, the max you can get in this company is Sr. Trader after 3 years of working with OSTC.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Because the maximum you can achieve in this role is Sr. Trader and then nothing beyond it.
