    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Interactive Brokers in April 2017.

    Interview

    First you have a phone screening. That's less then a few minutes long. A hiring manager invites you in to a formal interview. As soon as you walk in the door they give a 30 question test. This test is hard. You need to know basic math (long division, fractions, probability) without using a calculator. The rest of the test is on sercuities knowledge. If you don't have strong series 7 background your not passing this test. I'm glad I didn't get an offer. Everyone in the office looked miserable being there.
