    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group (SIG).

    Interview

    Phone screen followed by 5 hour interview. In person consisted of practical language agnostic coding challenge followed up with optimization questions, then current work description(how would you improve your current jobs software) and data modeling discussion(how would you model a system to suit these needs), and finally questions about my past accomplishments. All interviews were done in teams of 2, all by long term knowledgeable engineers.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group (SIG).

    Interview

    Applied on website. Asked to schedule initial phone interview, which concerned resume, fit-based questions, and interest in markets. Second phone interview was more technical with probability questions and market knowledge. They called me later than the scheduled time for the second phone interview and then proceeded to reschedule because interviewer was "busy in a meeting". Very disrespectful in my opinion. Third round was a case study - much more brief than I expected. Final round was onsite interview. Several 2 on 1 interviews and then a group brain-teaser session at the end. Many of the employees were sarcastic and condescending - surprising considering that they were transparent about the fact that they are paid less than employees at the bulge bracket banks. Very socially awkward group of people. Please take this review with a grain of salt, as these are my hindsight observations after not receiving an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked not to tell. Just review your basic probability concepts and have basic knowledge of options pricing. Very easy math if you are competent.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group (SIG) (Philadelphia, PA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    30 minute phone call with partner, was mostly just asking about my background and experiences. The role would not be accompanied by much training, so they wanted to be sure I could hit the ground running at full speed.

    Junior Network Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group (SIG).

    Interview

    Applied online on SIG website and later contacted the recruiter through LinkedIn. Got a call the very next day for emailing her. 1st round was basic technical and behavioral. Technical questions included VTP,VLAN, OSI Model basics. Recruiter contacted within 1 week for the next round. She was kind enough to offer me time as I was busy. The next round was purely technical, on phone, taken by 2 members of networking team. Questions included cabling, routing and switching(a little indepth). Recruiter again contacted me in 10 days for the final round of interview at their onsite location in Bala Cynwyd. She got me train tickets in business class. Hotel was not required as I was travelling from DC. They even provide reimbursement for other travel expenses. On the onsite interview date, met with the recruiter and she gave a warm welcome. The first round was with the networking team engineers. They asked questions related to L3 switches, STP, subnetting and redundancies. Read about CCNP switching in depth to answer their questions. Next round was with 2 IT managers. They asked me to design a network and again talked about redundancies. I did not have have knowledge of L3 switches and redundancies in depth. So my interview rounds went bad. The third round was supposed to be with the IT director but was later then cancelled. After the interview the recruiter gave me a tour of their office and called an uber for my way back. Got an email with a rejection within 4 days, which I was already expecting. Overall good company and tough interviews. They expect the CCNP R&S knowledge which is too much to ask for an entry level position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group (SIG) in September 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was like any other technical role interview. One behavioral interview on the phone with a non-technical recruiter. As long as you be yourself and show some degree of caring, you should make it to the second round. The second round interview was also on the phone with two team members. The second interview was technical with an onslaught of networking questions. The interviewers desire to get an understanding of how deep your knowledge base is. Be prepared for follow up questions after nearly every question. Be sure to prepare and to study non-vendor specific solutions to problems. Be aware that two engineers will be asking questions, as you are answering one question, the other will be pondering on the next questions. Please study - basic questions can be forgotten.
