Overall, a pretty straight-forward phone interview. Had time for some brief bio followed by two questions. Both questions were probability questions. The second was an application of Bayes rule. Pencil and paper required.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews then an on person interview. Interviewers would ask a question then talk about their kids and facebook. Were very unprofessional and at the end of the interview, after struggling, they simply walked out of the room and I had to find my own way out. I would not recommend this company for the assistant trader position as my two interviewers were the people in charge of training new hires.

    Interview Questions

    • Showed me a multiplication table 2^2, 2^3, etc. and asked me what range I would guess 14^7 / 5^3.   Answer Question

    Interview

    On campus interview. Talked about myself and then asked some easy probability questions. One was regarding a submarine the other about rainy weather. The person interviewing was very nice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP in January 2014.

    Interview

    I got a phone interview for about 45mins. They asked me some questions about my background and research experience. I was very surprised to be asked about my GRE scores. I took it long time ago. He also gave me some probabilities (coins) questions, and I got it right. I guess they want smart people. If you can persuade them you are smart, you have advantage to be hired.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing is particular difficult, but you need to find a way to impress them.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP (Philadelphia, PA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Pretty informal overall. There was a team round with probability questions/brain teasers followed by a tough four on one final round interview in which they ask probability questions/brain teasers/game theory questions. You should spend plenty of time practicing questions from quant interview books. I got most of the questions but didn't get an offer (probability because I talked too much during the interview)

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP.

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward interviews with a large focus on conditional probability, Bayes' Theorem, expected value, and creative thinking. Not as much brainteasers as other interviews, but you should still be familiar with some of the most common ones. Each of the three rounds involves progressively harder/trickier iterations of these topics, but the final round in addition involves a group interview with other candidates to see how you solve the same types of problems as before in teams.
