Swift Trade is crazy man, i work with 3 people that use to work at Swift Trade. From what they tell me, its garbage, don’t do it. I think that 50k salary is predecated on something else.
There was another requirement when I took a look at it a few years ago. Something like “avid video game player”. I do not think there is salary. I think that is more like “estimated income”. That said, trading itself is fun if you are good at it and pay out rate is decent.
yeah it’s like 3 months unpaid. swift trade is absolute garbgae by all accounts my friend!
Someone must be making money there.
Two of my former coworkers worked there too. They said you have to go through an unpaid training program and then after that I don’t believe there is a salary. They said some guys there did alright at it but it isn’t a respectable finance gig by any means. If you seriously want to have a career in finance, then don’t waste your time applying.
some guys there do make 100k. but most guys get fired or quit if they can’t generate enough profit. the people that i knew that worked there aren’t upset nor are they looking to get into similar roles. from what they told me, they said, “it was fun”. when i asked if they would work there again, they smiled and shook their heads.
doesn’t the training worth something? what does a real trader do?
anytime you’re sitting idle its worth something. I doubt Prop. traders in the BB are scooping out swift trade for talent. that’s what i think.
