    I have an interview next week for their assistant trader position and am very busy preparing. I really want to nail the interview. Does anyone have any personal experience with the firm and/or their interviewing process? Thanks.
  2. I had interview with them last year, for assistant trader (bonds). Had 2 rounds, one with recruiting woman (how would you do in this type of blah blah basic stuff), one with actual bond trader I was suppose to trade with, and one with one of senior trading guys. Did good with first 2 , only the trader guy came off a bit unfriendly.
    Just retarded questions, after 6 years of trading they asking me why I want to trade and so on and on.
    Too bad it didn't work out though, it still is one of few companies in Chicago where you can learn a lot, try different things, and have a salary to live off. Rarity, thus hard to get in.

    Brush up on trading questions.

    Thanks for the info, Lion. What do you mean by "trading questions"?
