    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Group One Trading.

    Interview

    2 rounds. Second round was with the traders at the office. Very straightforward process. Definitely brush up on your math and stats beforehand. They don't expect you to know the ins and outs of options off the bat, so don't worry about that.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Group One Trading (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Contacted the recruiter with my resume and set up an initial phone interview. This was behavioral with a few easy math questions at the end. Lasted around 30 minutes. After that, had an additional phone interview with managing director. This time was straight behavioral, again around 30 minutes. Both interviews were very conversational, not stressful at all. The questions were not designed to trick you.
