    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sanford C. Bernstein (New York, NY).


    I submitted my resume online and within a few weeks had a phone conversation with what would be my boss. The conversation was just a general description of the job and discussion of my background and interest in trading. It was fairly easy. Next, I was invited for a day long interview. I talked to my future boss, his subordinate, two other directors in the trading group and the manager of the entire trading floor. Most of the interviewers just wanted to know about my background in general and computer science in specific. One manager gave me a few easy problems to solve. It was a marathon process of 6 hours (with a brief lunch break and a break to receive a phone call). Two days later I was asked to submit some sample code and answer a few questions about it. Two weeks later I received an offer. We negotiated for about a week after that.
