    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Chicago Trading Company (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Three round robin interviews with Q's about history and interest. They brought me in and walked me through the typical process. Expectations were clearly defined for each step. They emphasized their community as their most valuable asset, and I would generally agree that in such a high impact job, being a good fit for the job is probably paramount to keeping the company as a strong competitor in the marketplace.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Chicago Trading Company.

    Interview

    First was an online coding challenge which was some basic implementations of math functions. Next was a phone interview involving some more coding and a little bit of background. Finally was a super day interview which had three short technical interviews (brain teasers, probability, pseudocoding, etc.), two behavioral interviews, and two short "projects"/activities that were more trading specific. It's a long day but fun if you enjoy technical interviews. They also took us out to dinner and gave us a tour the day before the super day interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Some of the coding during the super day interview must be done without internet access so make sure to review some basic syntax that you might normally look up.   Answer Question
