Please describe the interview / hiring process.
Vigilant is basically a private event-driven hedge fund who also outsources its technology to other funds, and I learned about their activities from a friend who interned there. So I applied online and got one interview about a month later. The interview was at Vigilant's office in downtown Montreal and it was with 2 people: one HR and one manager of the market team. They started off with behavioural questions (eg. walkthrough your resume, what are your strengths, tell me about this experience on your CV..) then quickly jumped into market-related questions such as: what's your view on gold, what's your view on US economic recovery in the next 20 months, which event have you been following and what trades did you think about. The interviewers were very nice and gave their own opinions about the market. I had a good feeling about it. The entire interview lasted 30 minutes and I was told that they would get back to me, which they never did even after I followed up with them. So that left me with a bad impression of this company.
