Interview Details

What did the interview consist of?
Phone Interview
Please describe the interview / hiring process.
I applied online directly via their website. I actually did not hear back from another 2 months. The HR recruiter scheduled me a phone interview with one of the Trainee Traders.

The phone interview started off with your standard behavioral questions; Why trading? Tell me about yourself, etc. After the behavioral questions, I was asked maybe 5-10 numerical brain teasers. I won't list them in detail, but think of your average trader brain teasers; fast 2x2 math in your head, EV of a game, basic probability, etc.

I thought I did well from the start, but then missed the last 2 brain teasers. I wasn't even close and in hindsight, they were actually fairly easy questions.
