    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wolverine Trading.

    Interview

    Met them at a campus career fair, got an interview the next day. The interview was a simple written c++ coding exercise, with time leftover for questions. The man I interviewed with was very nice, giving me time to adjust my answer if he saw anything wrong. I then had an onsite interview. It had a coding exercise plus some technical interviews.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wolverine Trading (Chicago, IL) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Arrived a few minutes so I knew I was pretty much screwed. The girl didn't say anything about my tardiness but as soon I walked in she asked me to write an algorithm to find all of the prime numbers from 1 to n. She worked with me as we came up with the solution, but because I was nervous and late, there was not much more time for anything else. She then told me a little about the company and that was it.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Wolverine Trading (Chicago, IL) in October 2009.

    Interview

    Met with representatives at college career fair. Had an on-campus interview, where I was asked to solve some algorithm problems and puzzle problems (sorting, find repeated numbers, etc). Scheduled a follow-up phone interview, which consisted of c++ trivia / design issues. The phone interview was very fast paced, one after another. Scheduled an on-campus interview with more c++ questions and more personal questions, such as "Why do you want to work at Wolverine?", "Where do you see yourself in a few years?", "What kind of work most interests you?", etc. Met with a variety of employees one at a time.

    Everyone was very friendly and courteous. Office seemed very modern.

    Interview

    Met Company at University Career fair, got a 1/2 hr interview for 5 days later. It was a technical/Behavioral interview, he asked me stuff like why I want to work for wolverine trading and why I'm interested in trading.

    Technical questions weren't too hard, there was a puzzle in which I had to fill in numbers in a grid without adjacent numbers touching each other. Then there were others elementary ones (listed below)

    3 weeks later I received a mail saying that they were not able to offer me a position with their firm at that time.

    Interview

    Had an on campus interview after meeting them at a job fair. It was 20 minutes long. They first asked me to tell them about my interests in computer science and what I have done in my coursework and personal projects. After that they gave me a coding problem. She had me explain my algorithm verbally first. Then she watched me write the code on paper. Lastly she had me explain the running time, and to say what could be a more optimal solution if given more time and extra data structures.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Wolverine Trading.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got a 30 minute phone interview with some basic hr type questions and an easy coding exercise. Within hours I got an invite to Chicago. In Chicago there were I believe 4 different parts to the interview process, each about 45 minutes long. Basically everything asked were coding related and generally they would ask you to write a function or describe how you would algorithmically tackle the problem.
