    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at T3 Trading Group.

    Interview Details

    One on one interview. Basic questions. Friendly interviewer.

    Google "risk" and try your best to understand it. Sell yourself as why you are a good risk for the interviewer to take. They spend time and energy training you so what is in it for them.

    If you need an income within a few months, I would not recommend this position. There is no salary. Even if you are profitable for one month, it doesn't mean you can do it consistently. This position will require significant savings and/or help from family.

    Entry Level Prop Trading Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at T3 Trading Group.

    Interview Details

    I don't think the interview was challenging. The written test included two brain teasers, several math problems, market knowledge and self defining problems, like do you think you are an organized person. You have 15 mins to finish the test and it is quite simple if you have gone through the reviews others put here. There are also some behavioral questions like what two characteristics do you think to be a good trader. People there are friendly, you feel like you are chatting with the recruiter. But the problem is salary, there is no base and they require capital contribution. For entry level position, they also require you to attend a training course,which you have to pay for.
