    Average Interview

    Interview

    Mostly qualitative at first and much more quantitative later on. They're looking for competitive, hard-working, smart, quantitative minded individuals. It is a laid back atmosphere from the outside but is still a trading firm and requires a hard-working mentality

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WH Trading (Chicago, IL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Relaxed interview. Not meant to be difficult. Some Math and probability involved, but it was not too challenging. That being said, prepare to answer these types of questions. Felt like my slightly wrong answers led to me being crossed off the list. Other than the few math questions per interview, there was mostly just resume and fit questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at WH Trading in January 2012.

    Interview

    Several logic, math questions - in the old days, had to interview with nearly every member of the firm and if anyone particularly didn't like the candidate an offer was not extended. That said, Will Hobert and Alvin Dodek had the last word. Background in real entrepreneurship is a plus, i.e. doing work that paid, not fancy internships

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at WH Trading (Chicago, IL) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I got this interview through my college career website. It took about a week from the time I applied before they called me in. Since the company deals with financial trading, the interview questions were basically designed to assess how capable I was in judging risk. Overall it went okay.
