    Applied through college online portal and was scheduled for an on-campus interview. The interview lasted around 30-45 minutes. The interviewer was very nice despite me struggling with the questions. A few simple behavioral questions and 3 brainteasers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group in January 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online. Started off with a short interview with HR. Then they scheduled me for a technical interview about six weeks later. They had an outside consultant run the interviews. I answered the questions correctly and the fellow even said I did well, but they turned me down anyway.

    I'm given to understand that the interview is timed, so even though the questions seem easy it's really a time trial. Some involve a lot of arithmetic and time ticks away rather quickly. Rather bizarre experience overall.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic probability, computing the expected value of a game, etc.   Answer Question

    ETL Production Support Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group (Bala Cynwyd, PA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    It all started with recruiter call. After that I was invited for a chat with hiring manager, which was very informative call, I was grilled a lot on ETL support questions. I thought I was done after that call, but surprisingly was called onsite for multiple round of interviews.

    Onsite was awesome, met great people and got to know in & out about the role. Some tough questions where they were interested in checking my way of thinking rather than correct answer.

    Was given offer, but had to turn down due to other good opportunity, which was more inline with my aspirations.

    Overall, I would recommend this company to anyone.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group in December 2017.

    Interview

    HR interview, then scheduled a phone call. It was strange because the person I spoke to was not a quant at SIG. It was a consultant they hired to carry the interview. It was supposed to last 1hr and have from 7 to 10 questions, but instead it only had 4. The guy on the phone was nice, but he had a very strong accent.

    Honestly, I feel like there were not seriously considering me for the position. I answered the questions he gave me correctly (although I he helped me a bit with one of them).

    Quantitative Researcher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group (Philadelphia, PA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    This is an internship program. The recruiter responded very quickly after I submitted my resume online. The initial round is a phone screen with HR and then a quantitative interview with a math lecturer in some university. This first round tech interview is standard, as others described. I figured out 7 problems in 35 minutes and then the interview with the head of the quant team. This round of interview consists of 3 problems which are more complex than the first round but not that tricky. Then I moved to the onsite.

    One week before the onsite, they gave a data exercise to finish. The onsite day was intense. 6 rounds of 45min or 1hr interviews with limited breaks. Did not perform well in two important rounds and got the rejection after a week.

    The general experience is pleasant. The whole quant team is actively seeking for talents and cares a lot about how one thinks about the problem. The team is in a pretty good atmosphere. The only issue is about the onsite schedule, for which I think 6 long interviews with limited breaks are too tight.

    Interview Questions

    • Binary/Trinomial tree option pricing, probability problems(poker game, dice game), estimation of exponentials and errors in the approximation formula.   Answer Question
