    I have been working at Chimera Securities

    Pros

    Great IT, OK software, cool people to work around, lax dress code, cool founders to work for.

    Cons

    Tough industry to break into. Everyone is cool with haring ideas, but it doesn't mean you can do what they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much, they are fair.

    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.
