I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Wolverine Trading.

Interview Details – Met at career fair and scheduled for a 30 minute on-site interview a few days later. The interview was very brief with going over the resume and went right into a technical question. I got nervous and wrote very messy code, but the interviewer was nice enough to guide me through and give hints.

Interview Question – What is the probability of getting a full house after picking out 5 cards from a full deck?
What is the delta of an option at strike price?
You have a rubiks cube that is 10x10 and you dip it in red ink. What is the number of cubes that have not been tainted by the paint?
Add up your phone number, divide it by 5 and square the value.
Can you tell me what is the expected value of the sum of 2 dice that are rolled simultaneously?

The questions were fairly challenging but not hard if you practice conditional probability or work through heard on the street or other books like that. Interviewer was fair and helped me through some problems. No offer.

Trading Associate Interview

Trading Associate

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Wolverine Trading.

Interview Details – Had a 30 minute phone interview. I was asked a few straight-forward behavioral questions, some questions on options (had listed experience with options on resume), and some brainteasers. He helped a bit with the brainteasers, but being my first phone interview, I was a bit nervous and didn't do great.

Interview Question – You roll a 8-sided dice and get the same number of dollars as the number rolled. The game has a fair value of $4.5. How would you price an option that gives you the opportunity to re-roll?   View Answer

New Grad Software Engineer Interview

New Grad Software Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wolverine Trading.

Interview Details – (Note, I am still in the interview process) I talked to a Wolverine rep at a campus career fair. 1.5 weeks later they contacted me to set up an initial phone screen. My interviewer was easy to talk to and sounded like a young guy that was very personable. After exchanging pleasantries he asked me a couple questions about my school/internship experience, then got into the technical questions.

Interview Question – The majority of the phone screen was rapid-fire technical questions; general cs knowledge questions that had straightforward answers. The first several were about data structures--properties of arrays, linked lists, hash tables, and what scenarios each are useful for. Then a few object oriented design questions (touched on the major concepts--polymorphism, inheritance/abstraction, data encapsulation, overriding/overloading). Asked about difference between process and thread.   Answer Question

Summer Software Engineer Intern Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Wolverine Trading.

Interview Details – Lots of OOP-concepts and data structures questions (i.e., difference between pass by value and pass by reference, what is the underlying structure of the Set abstraction in C++, what is the difference between lookup in a Vector and lookup in a Set, how would you pass an object by reference when you don't want it modified in the called function, advantages of linked lists, difference between vectors and linked lists, how you would insert a node in a doubly linked list). This was a phone interview. Lasted for about an hour, just a rapid-fire round of technical questions and questions about my past work. Interviewer was very nice and encouraging.
