    Interview

    Submitted resume via career center website. Took a logic and math assessment prior to interviewing for the trader intern position. Was contacted about scheduling an on campus interview. On campus interview consisted of interviewer asking standard "walk me through your resume" questions and a few basic technical and brainteaser questions such as "what is the difference between an option and a future?" Not sure what they were looking for because I felt like I nailed the interview. They interview at MIT, Harvard and such so competition was probably tough

    Interview

    I submitted my resume during the campus career fair and was asked to finish a one hour on-line test regarding math and inductive reasoning skills. The math test was really easy and inductive reasoning test was a little bit running out of time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IMC Group (Chicago, IL) in February 2011.

    Interview

    One on one was fairly easy, no brainteaser or anything make you feel silly. But the test after one on one was an nightmare. Get ready to tease your brain. The test includes two parts. One is the math or probability part, you pretty much can find lots of similar test on internet. The second part is the Graph or IQ test. It's pain in the neck. Piece of advice, do yourself a favor, practice before hand.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IMC Group (Sydney (Australia)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The first part is a code test of 120 minutes. The second part is Analysis Aptitude Test, including verbal test, numerical test and diagrammatic test. This test are all multiple choices and you have to do 4 in 3 minutes, which is quite intense especially for a non-native English user like me. And you must have a calculator with you in such a limited time.

    • The first question is to find out the longest valid password from a sequence of alphanumeric words.   1 Answer
    • The second question is to calculate the total number of stops of a lift by giving the number of people and their weights and preferred levels.   1 Answer

    Psychometric Testing. Standard numerical, comprehension and geometric sequence stuff.

You are asked to fill in either the starting pattern, the operators used, or the final pattern.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at IMC Group (Sydney (Australia)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    First they gave me an online coding test and personality test. It was quite easy and I passed. Questions involve the dynamic programming, priority queue huffman coding and binary tree. Then it was the phone interview. It was pretty weird that instead of writing the real code they want me read out the code I imagined in my head. Although the question itself was very simple. It's just a pretty simple dynamic programming problem. Then the on-site. It's pretty nice that they ordered me the flight ticket from Canberra to Sydney. They told me it would last all day if I could pass all test. But once I failed in one test, I'd leave. Unfortunately I only could only sustained to the second test and I had to leave.

    Interview

    I did not make it to the final round so I'll just share my experience interviewing with IMC HK. The first round process consists of an online assessment and a phone interview from their HK office. The online assessment is mainly about how fast you respond to things (pretty reasonable for traders) and pretty easy. The phone interview lasted for 15 minutes and was mainly behavioral and very east brain teasers.
