    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Tower Research Capital LLC (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I went through a recruiter, but the interview process was quickly token over by Tower's own HR staff, which handled the process professionally and responsively. First 3-hr onsite test, then two technical phone interviews, finally on site. People are nice, smart, and knowledgeable. Questions seem to be given based on the level of experience (as stated in the resume). They went pretty deep on languages and skills. Big emphasis on code and algo efficiency.

    Interview Questions

    • Many data structure, algo and C++ questions. The on-site includes writing code, compile and test on Linux.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tower Research Capital LLC (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    After a coding challenge and a phone screen, I went for an on-site interview. They paid for everything. The interview process was very positive. All the interviewers were smart, knowledgeable and respectful. Unfortunately, it was my first interview ever and I was terribly unprepared. I would advice people to know algorithms well and make sure you don't add anything to your resume you don't know well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tower Research Capital LLC.

    Interview

    Was interviewed via phone for a screening process, I guess they didn't like my replies or found someone more qualified because I didn't get an offer. I applied online and they set up the phone interview 2 weeks after submitting my resume. Seemed like a great company, too bad it didn't work out.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Tower Research Capital LLC (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The process started very professionally with great scheduling, appropriate questions and in-person meetings with a variety of staff. It ended rather abruptly and bluntly when they emailed to ask for my current salary. It seemed like they were interviewing me just to find out what I make, not because they thought I was a valuable candidate.
