    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Alpha FX (London, England, England)

    Interview

    A bizarre experience to say the least. Cold outreached via LinkedIn, expressed interest in at least seeing what they had to offer.

    Passed 2 rounds and then proceeded to the final in-person interview at the company's offices. I knew going into this meeting that they were looking for a 'character' rather than legitimate experience, however I did not expect the interview to play out quite the way it did.

    Interviewer was unengaged, at times confrontational, and dismissive. Asked lazy questions of no real value - and mildly insulted all answers given, citing something to the effect of "not really feeling it". Was told any prior sales experience is irrelevant as most of their hires come from non-sales backgrounds (slight red flag from my perspective)

    Whole experience felt like a bit of a power trip from somebody not really equipped to conduct interviews in a constructive manner, and at best gave an insight into what I would imagine to be quite a toxic working culture.
    Interview

    No real questions asked other than "what brings you here"
