    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Automated Trading Desk LLC (Charleston, SC) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I was asked a series of basic Interview questions for an Intern position. It began with simple personality related questions such as why do you go to the school you go to. They also asked about the company itself. Typical questions that are asked in the beginning of interviews. This was then followed by questions relating to finance, such as describe the relationship of bonds and interest rates and why this is the case. They concluded the interview with quick intellect questions, one example being you have two coins, what is the chance that they both land on heads. The answer varied based on if the coin flips were dependent on each other or not.

Coding questions on C++ that need usage of STL, exception-safety, singleton, thread-safety, network programming. 1.5 hour discussions with 5 team members on the programming solutions. In depth questions on the design approach, patterns, OS and networking fundamentals. Your programming solutions tell them a lot about your proficiency and servers as a good discussion starter.

If you can remember cell phone numbers of two new friends without repetition, don't worry! Later, 1/2 hr personality test (have you killed anybody? kind of questions).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Automated Trading Desk LLC.

    Interview

    I interviewed in 2009. I sent my resume blind to HR and got a call back soon after. I had a technical background. The process (I was later part of hiring) consists of resume screening and one group interview. The people who you will work with gather in a room and mostly ask you about your experience, and give you a couple of brain teasers. When I worked there they probably interviewed 5 people for every one they hired. If you like silly little problems then it should be a fun interview. Just be confident
