    Interview

    These guys are ridiculous. I answered all of their questions adequately and quickly and did not move on to the next step. I really do not know what went wrong and they gave 0 feedback, which I think is ludicrous. They ask behavioral questions like why trading and why CTC.

    Interview Questions

    • What is 34 * 17 (mentally) and what is 20% of 750. Most likely they'll ask something similar for first round interviews but not the exact same.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chicago Trading Company (Champaign, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and interviewed on campus. The interviewer DID NOT pay any attention. I sensed this the first moment I met him. He was extremely tired. He complained the interview right after lunch was the hardest because ... When I started coding, he was looking away. I do not know the reason.

    Unlike companies I interviewed before, he did not ask any follow-up questions. Overall, no attention. Rejection came after noon. It was a funny experience.
