Citadel , Two Sigma, PDT, Hudson River Trading etc.

Is it the same format as a google interview ?

Any information would be appreciated .

Edit: Thank you for the responses!

    they tend to ask language specifics very often and puzzles sometimes

    I was surprised to hear questions about C++ details, like “why do you care guys”?

      Because for certain roles you have to really know C++ specifics, hence why they’re being asked

      Interesting, I've never heard about this before. I thought puzzles are frowned upon everywhere.

      I’ve personally never heard of anyone at Citadel asking or being asked puzzles in an interview, but it’s possible

    Generally similar, expect mainly LC and some system design. Depending on the team, may be some domain or language specifics. Potentially some probability or easy statistics. Expect no finance related questions

      Is wlb really as bad as people say? How many people consistently work 60+ hours a week?

      Rare and not required. Average is closer to around 50/week though.
