    Interview Details

    I was contacted by HR and we scheduled a phone interview, a trader called me and we did three brainteasers.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Wolverine Trading in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Handed my resume to recruiter at career fair and then was invited to a phone interview and after that was invited to interview on site. Phone interview consisted primarily of common computer science questions, mostly about data structures.

    For the on site interview, the company provided me a hotel and travel reimbursement. At the interview I was first asked to solve some problems on paper. After that I was given 45 minutes to solve a problem using nothing but notepad++. I was asked to solve it without using a calculator or the internet. After that I had lunch with some other developers. When I returned from lunch I was promptly informed that I didn't pass the programming challenge on the computer and that the interview was immediately over. This was very sudden.

    Overall the company left a positive experience despite the sudden rejection. I did feel like it was a waste of time to come all the way to Chicago if a decision was going to be made so quickly about the problems I solved with the engineers.

    1st round was mostly soft questions, Tell me about yourself? why finance? why buy side? do you know what market making is?

    I was asked to describe my research, and also a classic dice question, which you could find in any quant interview prep book.

    Second round was a more detailed evaluation of the content I had on my resume

    Sit down with a piece of paper and write code, then talk about it with the interviewer. Watch out for corner cases.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wolverine Trading.

    Interview Details

    Met them at a campus career fair, got an interview the next day. The interview was a simple written c++ coding exercise, with time leftover for questions. The man I interviewed with was very nice, giving me time to adjust my answer if he saw anything wrong. I then had an onsite interview. It had a coding exercise plus some technical interviews.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wolverine Trading in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process went very smoothly & efficiently. They paid for my travel to Chicago and put me up in a hotel (a nice one about a block or two away and convenient to the Blue Line so you can get to/from the airport easily). It was set up quickly, the interview process ran well & on schedule, and the offer came in a few days later. Everyone was very courteous and professional, and everyone gave me the opportunity to ask them questions after they had asked all of theirs which is something I appreciate. I had lunch with a couple of the guys in Wolverine's cafeteria afterwards, and I had a great time chatting with everyone (which made the decision to take the job even easier because I got along well with them in a more social setting).

    Interview Questions
    • None really - the questions were all reasonable in my opinion compared to some other interviews where I felt like I was being asked to solve a problem in 15 minutes where I would normally have 2 or 3 hours to work on it.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No problems at all - the terms of the offer were very fair and they were flexible about my start date which was helpful as I needed to finish up a consulting assignment before I could start with them. Only complaint is that nobody mentioned they had a high-deductible health care plan which took me by surprise on my first day when I was told about it. Granted, I could've asked for more information before accepting, but they could've been a little more forthcoming also.

    On campus interview after career fair. Had me insert into a singly linked list. Was very casual and laid back. 30 minutes. Had a very minor discussion beforehand about where I wanted to be later down the road, but nothing too behavioral.
