    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    It was just a very simple phone interview. Nothing special at all. Basically, they called me, and we just discussed the position for thirty minutes. But, mostly we talked about my school, discussed Chicago, and discussed if I could be able to find a spot to live over the summer if I got an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • No technical questions at all. Just talked about trading and school.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gelber Group (Chicago, IL) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I met one of the hiring managers at a career fair, chatted with her very casually and ended up getting her business card. Upon reaching out to her, I was invited to interview in the office. When I got there, I was given a tour of the office before being sat down and asked some behavioral/fit type of questions. After talking with her for awhile, one of the traders interviewed me. He asked me a bit about my background, then asked me to talk him through comparing a few sets of data developed from different trading strategies and ultimately asked me to choose which one I thought was the best. Sounds a little technical, but it was really relaxed and just felt like a conversation as opposed to being grilled.

    • Talk me through how you would compare each of these data sets.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gelber Group (Chicago, IL) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume via a job posting on school career center website. Heard back by email with a request for a phone interview. I had two phone interviews, one with, who I believe was a general recruiter, and the other was one of the algorithmic traders. Both interviews were fairly easy, did not have to answer any technical questions. I used to play online poker for a living before and during most of my college career, so a lot of questions were directed at that. They also asked a bunch of "fit" type questions
