    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP (Philadelphia, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    They contacted me to set up a 30 minute block for a phone interview. The actual interview took about 20 minutes. They didn't ask me anything about my resume, although they did have some generic HR type questions during the interview. I found it hard not to go into too much detail on the phone because most of the questions are very generic. I can't imagine the interviewer enjoyed my 5 minute discussion on the differences between TCP and UDP.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I did a phone screen with human resources which was mostly fit and asked questions about culture. Then had a phone call with the hiring analyst. Again, mostly fit and because it was on the west coast he asked how I felt about the early start time. We talked about workflow and what he was looking for in an associate. As an associate you mostly write and model pro-forma financials and so many sort of conversational questions there. Nothing overly complex or difficult but I had completed CFA which may have influenced his line of questioning.

    Stock market and math questions mostly, should be easy for finance. Were not very nice/did not seem qualified to be asking the kind of questions that they did for a IB intervew--why should HR people judge you on finance knowledge when they know very little themselves?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP (Bala Cynwyd, PA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I must say it was one of the fine interviews I have attended. The interview process is a 3 step process. First step, HR calls you for a 15-30 Minutes conversation. HR asked me about some of my background, why SIG, situation where you faced conflict within team and how you resolved it, any big database implementation done for the customer, Value addition done to the customer. Second step, a technical manager called me. The conversation was very smooth. The manager tested my database, DBA and data warehouse basics. Since this role comprised of both development and administration, be prepared for DBA questions. The interview went for 45 minutes. Third step, I was called to the onsite. The first round was a test where 5 database questions were asked related to data modeling, queries, ERD and data structures and the time given to complete the paper was 45 minutes. It has been mentioned that at least 4 questions need to be answered. The second round was with HR and she explained me about the company culture and very conversational. The third round was with one of the managers and he probed me with behavioral and technical questions on SQL, PL/SQL. He also probed me with some DBA questions. The fourth round was with couple of people (team lead and team manager) and they asked some great questions of data modeling, tuning, DBA approach, out of the box implementation for the client. The fifth round was with another couple of people (Development lead, Manager) and they asked some questions on SQL, PL/SQL and Unix scripting. The final round was with a trader which was very conversational and talked about company culture and fun aspects.
