    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PEAK6 Investments.

    Interview

    Took an online test. Felt questions were uncharacteristically difficult compared to similar trading interviews with a strong focus on pattern recognition. Very high time-pressure and only assessed accuracy of answer (as opposed to though process which in person or on the phone interviews do). Haven't heard back at all. A negative experience overall.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PEAK6 Investments (New York, NY) in October 2013.

    Interview

    There was a half an hour online exam. Which I took. Still haven't heard anything back from them. Lots of probability questions and logic questions. There is a time limit on each question rather than an overall time limit. Make sure your focused when you do it. I went into the test nonchalantly , and I considering I haven't heard back from them paid my dues.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PEAK6 Investments.

    Interview

    I connected through on campus recruiting. The interview was setup centrally and I went to a dedicated interviewing center on campus. I interviewed with someone from HR who went over my resume and then spoke with a former trader who now runs the training. He asked a lot of technical questions.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked how many ping pong balls fit in a 747. This shouldn't have been unexpected as it was already on glassdoor.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PEAK6 Investments (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Applied online for FT Trading opportunity. I received the math and personality test. Pretty easy. I never got back from them though, even after emailing the recruiter twice. Negative experiences because in my eyes, if I take the time to complete assessments, perhaps the applicant deserves a yes or no to moving throughout the hiring process.
