    I worked at Chimera Securities


    Flexibility to work at home; tech guys great help getting you set-up. Management has open door policy.


    Algos have taken away most trading opportunities INTRADAY, but overnight still exist. However, those positions are not recommended by senior management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get away from intraday strategies and leverage multi-day moves.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Chimera Securities.

    Interview Details

    Applied via online application and got a response with HR. They hire new traders for January and July. They interview candidates for the position 2-3 months prior the starting date. There's a one week training program that is 4 hours everyday after market closes. After that it's four month unpaid and after the period they exam if you are a fit with the firm/making profit. You will be paid 2k a month after the trial period and earn only commission one year after that.

    I had a total of 4 interviews HR, Trader, Trader, and Head Trader. Most of the questions were behavioral, fit, why chimera, why trading etc... Brain teasers and math questions were ask by the head trader. Nothing too difficult except for the math questions.
