    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Knight Capital (Jersey City, NJ) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Started with a phone call, then was flown into the Jersey City office for a "Super Day" which consisted of 5 individual interviews. They understand this was a position for undergrads so there were minimal technical questions. Mostly just got to know a few of the guys.
