Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at T3 Trading Group (New York, NY) in October 2016.

Interview

Mostly fit questions and lots of behavioral questions to see what kind of person you are, to see your understanding of the job, and your communication skills. There was also a test to see your grasp of stats and probability. The interviewer is very friendly and gave me lots of advice and his own thoughts about the market.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at T3 Trading Group (New York, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Market knowledge quiz and Riddles quiz...They were both pretty simple. I got most of the market quiz answers wrong but it didn't matter. They want you to put $7500 down, which is why I didn't take the position. I don't believe you should pay to work somewhere.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at T3 Trading Group (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interviewer was very pleasant, had a good talk with him. At first he was asking regular questions just to get to know me after what he sent me to do 30 minute test which was not easy at all. However on that test they are looking to see how you react when something impossible to do is given to you.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at T3 Trading Group in December 2016.

    Interview

    - I was called in for an interview but when I asked about accommodation and travel to New York, they said it would be on your own.
    - Managed to set up a phone interview somehow
    - As my interview date neared, got an email from the Trader that he's resigning the company and the position is no longer available which is quite ridiculous

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at T3 Trading Group (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I started with an impossible test for 15 minutes (impossible is the point of it) and then 1h45mn of discussion on many topics. The discussion was very enjoyable! After that I got an offer and accepted it. I took the Series 56 exam and once I had it I started working.
