    Senior Equity Trader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kershner Trading Group (Austin, TX) in October 2012.

    Interview

    They just asked me about my past record. I was surprised they didnt quite understand what I was doing. I got a feeling, they were more interested in what my firm was doing than what I was planning to do trading for their firm.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    The firm did not appear like a professional outfit. The contract they offered me was unacceptable to anyone who is an independent trader. Several better options available in the industry for anyone worth his salt in the markets.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kershner Trading Group (Austin, TX) in July 2007.

    Interview

    Thorough and detailed. I was interviewed by several people: the HR manager, the company controller, and two coaches, and I ended up making about three visits to complete them all. Each asked pertinent questions about my motivation, skill set, and outlook, and warned of the difficulties involved in the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kershner Trading Group in July 2009.

    Interview

    Very casual office. Meeting includes interviews with head of risk and IR, as well as computer tests to see what your ability to react to motions on the computer as well as the ability to spot patterns. Phone interview was more of a personality than anything to see if you have the right mindset to be a trader.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kershner Trading Group in December 2008.

    Interview

    I talked with the Human Resources department first then I interviewed with my trading coach. The interview was mostly about why I like trading so much. They want to know that you are 100% committed because if don't love the work then you will most likely not make it. The office is very laid back and traders can pretty much do what they want as long as they make money.
