    Quantitative Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Group One Trading (Chicago, IL) in March 2020.

    Interview

    The company is building their quant teams, they are not doing well on current stochastic volatility model as seemingly they aren't knowing much about mathematical and algorithmic optimization and some basic statistical learning, so that however good models fail. Interviewers were like completing missions and I don't see they are sincerely looking for talents. That said the interview process is professional as the first-round and superday accommodate my schedule well.

    Strange process. Phone call and than brought on site to meet with staff I was not told about. Staff I was supposed to meet with never did. No behavioral questions asked. No information really given on what they were looking for. Rejected a couple days later. No reason given but job remained open for awhile.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Group One Trading (Chicago, IL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The HR manager was very friendly and opened up the interview with cordial conversation. Not a lot of brainteasers, mostly technical and behavioral "fit" questions. This might be due to the fact I am part of my university's trading program that lets me communicate directly with the company staff.
