    Took more than half a day. Walked around trading floor and talked with several traders. Group interview were brainteasers, took about an hour. No other specific observations of really really really unnecessary comments.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    3 rounds, two phone interviews, and an on-site interview.
    SIG employees and recruiters are friendly, play a lot of poker.
    I had the first phone interview two days ago with the head of recruiting team. We talked about my resume and background, and then she gave me 3 math/probability questions which were quite not easy. I solved all of them and she invited me to the next round which I had today with one of the traders. The difficulty of the problems were little higher but not too bad. I solved all the problems here, too and I waiting for a response from them.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter in early September, after applying through my college job fair. We had a nice, pleasant interaction over email. She scheduled a phone interview with a general technical interviewer who asked about my prior experiences, why I do computer science, and how to implement a hash table in the most general sense. All went well and I was called again to discuss tech in more detail. I was asked to implement binary searching and a shuffle-sort algorithm, but most of the focus was again (pleasantly) on me and the person behind the code, not the code itself. After that, I had an onsite interview where they wined and dined all day, giving me an all-encompassing view over what they do and how they do it. Tours, meals, and five hours of interviews gave me a pretty good idea about what they wanted and how they wanted it. I think my lack of financial experience didn't matter, despite the financial nature of SIG. It was a good process with lots of check ins and conversations.

    Interview Questions
    • It was a cool data parsing problem where you took a text file data set and converted it to a usable data structure that was able to answer questions about ranges of data. It also required me to work with huge text files, with entries up to 1 million lines long.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through college career website, did the first round interview on campus. It was a 30-min one on one interview. The interviewer is a trader, smart and nice. He went through the behavioral questions very quickly, which is also expected. There were 3 questions on probability, I screwed up the second one. Didn’t move to the 2nd round.

    Software Development Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    1st round - Phone HR with 1 basic technical question
    2nd round - Straight coding over phone
    3rd round - On-site. Depending on your circumstance you could be interviewing almost all day and having dinner with employees that night, or dinner the night before. Brief coding exercise and then a few rounds of very holistic interviewing.

    The entire process took 5 weeks.

    The on-site experience was great, however I did not enjoy the interviews themselves. None of my interviewers were very familiar with Java, so brush up on your C/C# programming concepts. They also seemed not very prepared - I appreciate a conversational interview and letting it flow organically, but more than once did one of my interviewers (2 interviewers per interviewee) feel condescending while formulating oddly specific questions. There were no brain teasers; all were technical or behavioral.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied with resume on indeed.com. They replied and set up a phone interview. I did not get a second phone interview. I don't think they even wanted to hire anyone. I think everyone gets a shot at the first interview. I felt I did very well on the first phone interview but did not get a second. Weird. They let me know two days later that after much consideration I would not get a second phone interview.

    Interview Details

    I had applied for an intern position last year but didn't hear back from them. A couple weeks ago, they sent me an email asking about whether or not I was interested in the Technology Associate Program after I graduated. I said yes, and sent them my new resume. Then we set up an interview, really basic stuff. I was asked to talk about the stuff on my resume, and then a quick technical question.
