Hi!! Are there any admins where who work on a trading floor? Im interviewing for an administrative role on a trading floor in Manhattan. Looking for tips on what to wear - is it pretty similar to a “hedge fund dress code?”

I used to work in investment banking for many years; I don’t think it’s changed much. All of finance (inv banking, trading floors, hedge funds etc) are full business dress = suits. It’s possible where you’re interviewing has adopted a more casual attire, but it would still be smart dressing. Better to show up in a suit and be overdressed than -under.

And, since you mentioned you’ve never stepped foot on a trading floor, it’s the most chaotic, loud, aggressive, stressful environment there is. No joke. The few times I had to go to our trading floor I was overwhelmed, and investment banking was pretty insane too.

Glad that helped.

One other thing: naturally there are quiet moments on a trading floor, so if they take you through that area on your interview you make think “hey this isn’t so bad”. But, it is frequently as I’ve described above. The traders you’d support are literally handing millions of dollars every day - it’s a very high pressure job.

What would an EA or AA do on a trading floor? Never occurred to me there would be those sorts of roles. Thanks!

Seeing as it’s the end of January, if they’re looking to fill the role prior to March, it would mean I walk away from my current employer’s bonus which pays out in the 2nd week of March. I’m expecting $20k. How do I go about asking for a one time starting bonus?

Honestly, I’ve never been more disappointed to be an HR professional than in the last couple years. As someone who has heard and experienced the unprofessionalism during the candidate experience, I literally am questioning daily why I went into this line of work. But I tried to stay and impact the change I want to see. I just am really frustrated by an unprofessional HR Director I encountered during an interview.
