    Interview

    Online coding interview using codility. It was my first coding interview and I thought it was very fair. They asked three questions and I had two hours to do them. When done right, they shouldn't have been that many lines of code. It was mainly knowing the right algorithms

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DRW (Chicago, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Two phone calls and an onsite interview. 1 was very easy, and 1 was very tough. I enjoyed the experience, and I hope to be given the chance to work there in the future. That having been said It would have been nice to have gotten more feed back sooner, or be told I didn't get the role sooner.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at DRW.

    Interview

    Most of the questions were the standard brain teasers that you would expect in any trading interview as well as mental math questions, no surprise there either. Some of the questions were difficult, some easy. There are a lot of books on brain teaser type questions available so my advice - just make sure you do your homework before any such job interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DRW in December 2015.

    Interview

    Was emailed to set up an initial phone interview with a trader in their New York office. Started off with walking through resume and just personal interests and hobbies. Then there were a few questions involving quick calculations such as multiplication/division of two double digit numbers along with very basic probability questions. Then he moved on to more challenging probability/EV questions and then asked me what my answers were to my previous questions to check your memory. Did well and then they set up another phone interview with a higher up trader and again was asked personality/fit questions to start. I was expecting a lot of math/probability questions and didn't get any. The interview was mostly based off of one big question on valuing some asset with questions building off of each other. Was cut from the process shortly after

    Interview

    I applied online, and received a call that I was invited to interview in their Chicago office. I was interviewed there by the CFO over winter break and received a call 2 weeks later asking for a skype interview because they had narrowed one position down to several students. It was done through skype since I was back on campus. I did the skype interview and was notified of their decision days later.
