    Pros

    Trafigura gives a Global exposure to all employees as most of our stakeholders are based across various continents, facilitating a much wider scope to every strategy, decision, approach one has to take during their career here.

    A highly professional, performance driven, high reward, high appreciation, oriented approach and culture is what Trafigura is about.

    Cons

    Honestly if one is ambitious, a high performer, aspires to learn - Trafigura is the place to be

    Junior Trader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Trafigura (Houston, TX (US)) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed for Junior Trader Role. It was a first round interview. Second Round would have been in Geneva.

    Two interviews. Each with a panel of two current employees, who were mostly traders. It was Saturday. Employees had a full day of non-stop interviews to get through. Three rooms with two interviewers each operated simultaneously.

    Aced one interview, but I just could not click with the interviewers in the second room. The first interview I controlled the direction but the second one veered off course, and I could not save it. Partially my fault of course, but also the interviewers were not that great at interviewing either. I was not surprised when I was not selected for the next round, but I felt like with different interviewers I might have been able to convey what a great candidate they were missing out on if they did not choose me.

    I was offered no feedback, which I thought was poor form.

    Everyone was nice and professional. Jobs at the company are in high demand and they know it.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to describe in detail the hedges I would implement to protect myself on a cargo of Petroleum bought today for future delivery in one region on local pricing with intention to deliver if by sea to a different region on totally different pricing.   6 Answers
