    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at TransMarket Group.

    Interview

    first was some behavioral questions, then went through my resume, then several technical questions.
    took about 1 hr overall.
    great experience though, helped me realize where I should improve.
    questions on glassdoor are totally useless in my case, though I took one whole days to go through it.
    hope that I could get another chance with Transmarket in the future.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at TransMarket Group in February 2017.

    Interview

    First round phone interview starts from the general questions (why TransMarket Group? Why this role?) as well as some questions about your quantitative background and resume. It then moves on to technical questions on probability and basic concepts on statistics and derivatives. Technical questions at this round are nothing too difficult, but remember to get your basic concepts right. I think I messed up on a few derivatives concepts and was rejected.
