    I have been working at Consolidated Trading full-time (more than 3 years)


    I had to post because I honestly have no clue what the review from Oct 9th 2014 is talking about. I'm of the opinion that review sites generally tend to slide towards people that have gotten fired and want to burn up about it online. Horrible work life balance? We're one of the only industries that you go home when the market closes... for some people that's 12:30pm and for some people that's 3:30pm. If you can't have a life outside of that, good luck finding a job with any other company in an other industry that meets your demands. Threatening and disrespectful culture? I admit, at time the work is stressful, but again... it's trading. It's a given that sometimes people are going to get a little more pushy when they're down a couple million bucks. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. Bad benefits? Try fully funded life, dental and health insurance for you AND your family. The co-pays are minimal, and you have one of the most comprehensive buy-up options of any firm I've ever worked for. I have to say that any technology review that has been posted has to be by people that aren't making an effort to remain relevant themselves to the workplace. Many people in the firm are making serious money... would they be able to do that with irrelevant technology?


    Biggest cons are related to the quick growth of the company. Since the company grew so quickly, I can sense the growing pains with trying to figure out who is good at what, and capitalizing on their strengths while supporting their weaknesses.

    Trader Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Consolidated Trading in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Round one: on campus interview
    Round two: on site group interview and brainteasers
    Round three: offer or decline

    Overall, willing to answer any question that was relevant to the hiring process. I liked the group interviewing aspect. My interviewing peers were from top schools. Overall, great process.

    If possible, apply for the position through their website AND through the school job board. I think you have a better chance that way. The best chance of all obviously, is to find someone at the company and have them recommend you, but I think that's pretty obvious.
