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

It started out with a couple phone interviews. The questions were very standard and simple. The third round they fly you out to Philadelphia and interview you for an hour just yourself, then interview about 3 or 4 interviewees at the same time.

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP.
I turned in my resume during school employment convention, got email one week later.
I did well on 2 phone interview and went to Philly for in-person interview.
Nothing particular about interviews... Pretty much same as other trading companies' interview.
Interviewers are nice, too...
- Few probability questions including Torpedo(I heard some of my friends also had this question), which calculates the probability of the target being sunk. They are mostly about Bayes Theorem. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP (Philadelphia, PA) in January 2010.
The interview was 30 minutes long. 15 minutes of resume review and 15 minutes of math problems. The interviewer was very curt during the resume review, and asked only very surface questions and never asked me to expound on a topic in detail. There were was one combinatorics problem and one expected value problem. The interviewer told me that I got both questions correct, but a week later I was informed that they were not interested in me.

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP (Sydney (Australia)) in January 2015.
I met with one of the senior traders. Awesome office great views. Had interview in their room with a poker table with chips and cards. Jumped straight into basic probability questions. I mind blanked and completely got lost on very basic question. Then some harder probability and logic questions. Trader will assist you. Essentially you need to know your probability like the back of your hand. Overall a great experience. It's a shame because I know I messed up. I think it would be a nice learning curve here especially because I come from a poker background and they use this to teach.

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP in February 2012.
Interview Process was difficult but fair.. Very heavily quantitatively based with strong ephasis on mental arithmitic and probability theory.. Cosnisted of two phone interviews with maths testing and a 1:1 Interview with more difficult maths testing.. Ensure you are well oiled with mental probability and have an interest in strategy games such as poker.. Knowledge on financial markets was not essential with the imperative being numerical aptitudes.. Great company and good people..

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP in October 2010.
My first interview with SIG was at my school. The interview consisted of some questions like why would you want to work at SIG and why trading in general. After that they asked me some probably questions dealing with rolling multiple dice and different types of gambling games. It mainly involved finding the expected value of each and determining which would be the most profitable to play. After this i received a second interview over the phone. It was similar to the first in terms of probability but it was a little more trading related. The guy who interviewed me first was pretty friendly and a cool guy and was really into poker so making sure you know how to play before an interview could potentially help out with some questions.
- They asked me about the expected value of rolling one dice if you get the amount of money shown by the number that comes up. They then gave me the chance to roll it twice, but if you roll the second time you cant keep the value of the first. They then gave me the choice of rolling the dice three times. After this they gave me a chart which had different poker tournaments that i could join. each tournament had a specific entry fee, reward pot and probability to win and they wanted me to explain how to gauge the risk against potential profits.
