    Trader Intern Interview

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    Submitted resume via career center website. Took a logic and math assessment prior to interviewing for the trader intern position. Was contacted about scheduling an on campus interview. On campus interview consisted of interviewer asking standard "walk me through your resume" questions and a few basic technical and brainteaser questions such as "what is the difference between an option and a future?" Not sure what they were looking for because I felt like I nailed the interview. They interview at MIT, Harvard and such so competition was probably tough

    Interview

    I submitted my resume during the campus career fair and was asked to finish a one hour on-line test regarding math and inductive reasoning skills. The math test was really easy and inductive reasoning test was a little bit running out of time.

    Trader Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at IMC Group (Chicago, IL) in February 2011.

    Interview

    One on one was fairly easy, no brainteaser or anything make you feel silly. But the test after one on one was an nightmare. Get ready to tease your brain. The test includes two parts. One is the math or probability part, you pretty much can find lots of similar test on internet. The second part is the Graph or IQ test. It's pain in the neck. Piece of advice, do yourself a favor, practice before hand.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at IMC Group in May 2012.

    Interview

    I did not make it to the final round so I'll just share my experience interviewing with IMC HK. The first round process consists of an online assessment and a phone interview from their HK office. The online assessment is mainly about how fast you respond to things (pretty reasonable for traders) and pretty easy. The phone interview lasted for 15 minutes and was mainly behavioral and very east brain teasers.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    (Translated from English)

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at IMC Group (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Zeer professioneel sollicitatieproces. HR persoon is aardig en leidt je goed door het proces. Gesprek was met meerdere personen, 2:1, 1:1 en HR-gesprek, ook zowel de technisch als persoonlijk. Ze hebben een aantal echt slimme mensen en het was een uitdaging om over low latency trading systemen te praten. Ze geven niet echt veel om je achtergrond, maar ze zullen je vaardigheden wel maximaal testen. Technische vragen waren zeer specifiek over Linux en erg uitdagend. Zorg ervoor dat je alles over Linux weet voordat je hier naartoe komt!

    Beursvloer kan heel stressvolle omgeving zijn en ze proberen te kijken of je goed past bij en of je kunt omgaan met spanningen die daarbij komen. Als System Integration Engineer zit je meestal tussen handelaren en andere technische jongens in en het hebben van vaardigheden in het omgaan met deze situaties is belangrijk.

    Very professional Interview process. HR person is nice and guides you through the process nicely. Interview was with several people, 2:1, 1:1 and HR interview. Both technical and personal as well. They have some really smart people and it was a challenge to talk about low latency trading systems. They don't really care about your background, but they will test your skills to maximum. Technical questions were very specific to Linux OS and challenging. Make sure you dig deep into Linux OS internals before seeing these guys!

    Trading floor can be quite stressful environment and they are trying to see if you are good fit and if you can handle stresses coming along. As System Integration Engineer you'd mostly in between traders & other tech guys and having skills how to handle these situations is important.
