    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IMC Trading.

    Interview

    After I applied online, I received emails asking me to take two online assessments. The first one is a online simple graphic and logic test where you extract info from tables and graphs or do some logic inference. The second one is a video interview, several general behavioral questions and two probability questions were asked. The probability questions are relatively simple but you need to figure things out in a relatively short amount of time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IMC Trading.

    Interview

    Applied online through glassdoor, received an email to complete an aptitude test (like an IQ test but given only 3 min for every 4 questions). Thought I did well, but wasn't given any results and was rejected 1 minute later. The first part of the test didn't have anything to do with the job applied for and actually felt more for an financial job opening, as you look at graphs and complete some basic algebra. The second part was just a diagrammatic test that was very easy in the beginning but actually hard at the end due to a 3 min time constraint. Interesting but I don't feel like that should be the test for the job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at IMC Trading (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Talked about what I do and what classes I have taken before. Was pretty casual, the guy was a software developer (~5 years epxerience). We went into depth about everything on my resume before talking about the one question which he had. The question might seem easy, but to get it optimized requires a lot of thought and not rushing it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at IMC Trading.

    Interview

    Started off with an online assessment of 3 coding questions. I was then invited to move on to a online interview where I never heard back. The online interview was pretty strange. There was a question presented on the screen and you just had to record your answer. I thought it was pretty hard.
