    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Interactive Brokers in March 2018.

    Interview

    I went through 3 rounds, the first one was a general discussion with the recruiter about available positions and where I could fit. Then a coding round which had some multiple choice questions, was easy. After that I was scheduled for a technical round, the interviewer was quite rude, before I could finish my introduction he started interrupting. When I was trying to explain it to him he would not listen and kept interrupting. Overall the interview was good as I gave almost all answers except 2 of multithreading as I was not sure if my answers were correct.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Interactive Brokers.

    Interview

    Personality survey and online assessment. The survey basically gave you a bunch of words describing human characters, and asked you to choose those that fit you the best. The online assessment questions were all about Java basic questions, for example, exception, garbage collection, Object-Oriented concepts, etc. Some are very simple intellectual questions.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Interactive Brokers (Greenwich, CT).

    Interview

    It was the most prolonged process in my (not so vast) experience. Before actual interview you have to take on-line Personality Test (not IQ) and complete timed "homework" (e-mailed to you). Then on-site interview. First interviewer gave ma a Java+math test that was very close to the ones I already saw here, on Glassdoor. Then we had a conversation about my experience. After that I was handed to the second person who wanted me to write a small program right there in his office using pen and paper. He also had a test of his own to determine the outcome of code snippets. Then we had a short conversation. The third interview was already not really technical and mostly about my background. I was supposed to be interviewed by department manager at the very end, but we were able to spent very little time since he had a scheduling conflict. So it was 4 separate on-site interviews altogether.

    In a week or so, I got a "thanks, but no thanks" e-mail.

    Interview Questions

    • I was surprised that they still have the same test questions as the ones apparently used in 2010 (according to other posts).   1 Answer
