    Interview

    Virtual Interview where you record your answers on the screen. This comes before the actual in-person interview process. It was interesting because this was my first interview of this sort so I would recommend completing the practice interview first before doing the actual one.

    Receptionist/Administrative Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ION Trading (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted via LinkedIn about a receptionist role. I responded as interested, and proceeded to email a recruiter with my resume and information. I went through two screening calls and was scheduled for yet another phone interview, which did not accommodate my schedule (they just scheduled it for me without asking if I was available at the time, which by the way I wasn't).

    This *third* phone interview did not happen because they must have dialed the wrong number. I did not get the chance to call myself, as a number for the hiring manager was not listed in the email, nor was the number for literally anyone else at the company. I received a very rude email after the proposed time stating that they had called me twice and that I did not answer, to which I asked if we could reschedule and maybe I could call, or even come in to the office in person. No response. Not a good first impression.

    In addition to the interview experience, the Glassdoor reviews of the company really helped-- after I saw that management is not responsive to the employees, my opinion of the company was not a positive one to start out with. This interview experience cements my unfavorable experience with Ion Trading Group.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ION Trading in October 2016.

    Interview

    Starts out with a online interview where you are presented with a sentence and you record yourself answering the questions. You have 4 minutes for each question. You then have an in person interview on campus or a video interview if they don't come to your campus, then a final interview in New York.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ION Trading (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty stringent process. 3 rounds of interviews, followed by a lengthy approval process. Included personality / intelligence test. Overall fair and well worth it. Comes off better than previous experiences at other firms, that in hindsight would just hire anyone.
