    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Mellon Capital Management.

    Interview

    I applied back in July and didn't receive a call back from HR until early November. Apparently, it is a new role and they were waiting for the go ahead to hire. Once I received a call from HR, the process took about two weeks. The usual HR phone interview, then a phone interview with one of the senior traders. Must be able to show interest in the market and the position to move on to the in-person round. The in-person interview consisted of 3 1:1 with the Director and two VPs of trading. There were some arithmetic questions and behavioral questions, no technical questions. It's also important to keep up with current events and the market as it applies to each interviewer. Two weeks after the in-person interview, I was notified that they had selected another candidate with more experience. Overall, the experience was positive and I had a chance to meet some great people in the trading group.
