    Interview

    High pressure, discuss other candidate to make you nervous. Most people are nice though. They ask a lot of fit and math questions in the final round, really push you on your answers so make sure you can back them up. If you throw out a garbage answer they will jump on you

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP.

    Interview

    There were two interviews. For both interviews, I thought the person sounded interested in speaking with me and seeing what I knew. The first interview began by asking personal questions, such as if you're able to work here and why you're interested in SIG. It then went onto basic technical questions (What port number is [X]? What Linux command does [X]? Describe the TCP 3-way handshake.). The second interview was over 1 week later. It was all technical questions, which were more advanced than in the first interview, and asked you to explain or describe your answer in as much detail as possible.

    Interview Questions

    I applied online – interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP.

    Interview

    Applied online. Set up a phone call for about 15 minutes of behavioral questions and 15 minutes of math questions. The behavioral questions were straightforward, typical interview questions. The math took me by surprise; I had expected this to be mostly a qualitative research role.

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

    Interview

    SIG came to a career fair at my school about a year ago. I sent in my resume and cover letter, and heard back from them around two months later. They set up a phone interview, with a few behavioral questions and 3 math questions. I got them all right, so they gave me a second phone interview, with just one behavioral and again, 3 math questions - I stumbled on one of them but they gave me a final round interview, flew me out to Philly. Very informal dinner the night I got to Philly at nice restaurant to talk to current SIG employees, interview the next day. Interview started out with tour, then a couple rounds of traders working, then the interview, lunch, group interview, then you go home. Final round interview (with two traders and a recruiter) was basically all math, 6 questions this time. I got two of them off the bat, two of them with a little help, and stumbled on two. Heard back a week later with standard rejection letter.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP.

    Interview

    First round was a 30 minute phone interview. The first half was behavioral questions like walk me through your resume and the second half was easy probability questions. Just review the posts here and there will be no surprises. While I got all the questions correct I stumbled a bit while solving them and didn't hear back.

    Interview

    1st round phone interview: Asked general fit questions, "tell me about yourself". Was asked 3-4 probability questions, somewhat difficult. Large emphasis on the math. Answered all of them correctly, received an email to schedule a second interview. 2nd round phone interview: Same format as before, harder probability questions. Was unable to answer two of the three questions. Did no make it to the next round.
