    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Société Générale (New York, NY).

    Interview

    one on one with the hiring manager with a written test. After the first round you meet with the hiring manager's boss and then the CIO. If you get to this stage then all is pretty much set. The recruiter negotiated the salary.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Société Générale (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied via LinkedIn, then spoke with HR over the phone 2 weeks later. I was then invited into the office to speak with upper management in a 1 on 1 interview the next week. They asked the following questions: What are corporate bonds? Why do finance firms issue bonds? Why are you interested in this position? Why are you interested in this company? Where do you see yourself in 10 years? What is a derivative? List as many stock markets that you know. What do you enjoy the most/the least about each of your past 3 jobs? What brought you to NYC? What's your experience with SQL and Linux? I applied to this position on a whim, and I don't come from a computer science/tech background at all so I'm surprised I even got that far in the interview process. Upon realizing that my programming skills were average at best, they chose to move on with other candidates. They asked a few strange interview questions during the process as well.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Société Générale (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    very technical with silly questions and the people who interviewed me seemed out of touch with client coverage and market conventions. They were also all guys, mostly French, maybe because I am female, who knows. I was on the trading floor then went to what they called GLFI, whatever that means, on a higher floor.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Société Générale (New York, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I had a referral from someone in the company, but I still had to go through a quick HR phone conversation. It was pretty simple, basically going over my resume and my relevant experiences. After moving to the next step of the process, I had phone interviews with two other people on the team, and their questions were a little more in depth and technical, mostly giving me scenarios and seeing my thought process and if I am able to think critically. These two phone calls were a little more on the difficult side but just be confident with your answers. Don't be afraid to clarify and ask questions. They like to see that you are engaged and are actively thinking throughout the interview process.
