  1. Commodities Trader Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Squarepoint Capital (United States)

    Interview

    Two interviews, first about 30 mins, second nearly two hours.
    First seemed to be simply feeling out your experience and if you know what you're talking about. Second was much longer and asking more specific questions about your trading experience; how you view markets and digging as deep as possible into trading strategies+methods.
    ....In hindsight the focus on details of those strategies> personal
    details+experience was unusual for these interviews. The focus was heavily on trade+strategy details > the individual and their competencies.

    After the interview they wouldn't commit to a yes/no for weeks, it was very odd(their communication was also spotty between interviews)... I had other offers I had to commit to so had to pull out of Squarepoint's process.
    About six months later I get contacted by a different headhunter for the exact same position! Both times it was claimed they were trying to fill the position quickly+eager to hire.

    The whiole experience was very strange, in hindsight I'm genuinely dubious if they're looking to fill a job at all, and think it's a ploy to take trade details+strategies from people from rival firms.

    That was my takeaway, one which I didn't have from any other firms or interview processes. So if interviewing I'd recommend not putting too many of your eggs in this basket, and keeping details on strategies+systems close to the chest.
    Interview

    General questions about your background in trading, nothing complicated but checking if you know what you're talking about. Mostly fishing for trade details and strategies, no technical info.
