    Junior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai (India)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


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


    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.

    • Asked me about my educational qualifications, past internships and job experiences (if any)   Answer Question
    • The job asks a lot from the candidate, so one question that can be asked is If you fail or don't perform, how would you motivate yourself and convince me that you won't just leave the job and go away   Answer Question
    • Few other questions, depending on what a candidate says. So prepare accordingly and make a path for your interview by saying only those things that you are absolutely confident about   Answer Question
