Application Details

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Citadel.

Interview Details

Applied via the on campus recruiting system and they come to campus to interview all qualified candidates. The interview lasted one hour in total and is separated into two half-hour small parts. The first part is just about the resume question, for example questions related to research; and the second part contains some quant questions based on the resume.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Citadel.

    Interview Details

    2 rounds of phone interview - one with HR and one with a member in the team.
    Then they fly to Chicago. 4-5 rounds of interview with members of the team. Quite casual set up. But the stress of the interview can depend on the team you are interviewing with. Discussion on CV and basic maths. Machine learning is a plus.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Citadel in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was offered a phone interview soon after I sent my resume. The first round consisted of a few questions about my background, motivation to finance field, basic programme language problems (Matlab and C++) and one brain teaser. If you get through the first round, you will get two technical phone interviews and then on-site.

    Interview Questions
    • You have two strings whose only known property is that when you light one end of either string it takes exactly one hour to burn. The rate at which the strings will burn is completely random and each string is different. How do you measure 45 minutes?   View Answer

    I applied online – interviewed at Citadel.

    Interview Details

    2 rounds of interviews. First round was pretty short, about my background and one or two classical brain teaser problems. The second round was more technical, depending on the background of the interviewer and you. For my case, it involved a lot of statistics problems in great details.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Citadel in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Fairly straightforward phone interview. Most of the interview was about C++. There were some general algorithm questions, and some that had to do with handling of large data. A small part had to do with investing strategy. No questions about fit, background etc.
