An anonymous user shared the following insight about the process:
Online assessment, followed by brief phone conversation, then an on campus interview. On campus interview split into 3 portions, one hr, one math/probability (8 questions), and another conversation with a trader. The math portion is 8 questions, some mental math, some expected value problems with more information, you get pencil and paper for those. Friendly interviewers.
PEAK6 Pre-Interview Online Exam
An anonymous user on glassdoor shared the following information:
After filling out an application online, you have about a week to fill out two different online exams, in a sense. One is a more traditional personality survey. The other consists of short probability questions; there are only ten and you have three minutes to answer each.
Before the interview, you'll need to take an online assessment. 52x2=104 personality questions, 10 math/probability questions 1 min each, about 1 hours in total to finish the assessment.
