I had 6 interviews. I had a phone interview with HR, then a phone interview with two traders on the CBOE, then an interview with a trader on the NYSE, then 3 in person interviews. Crazy intense interviews, but I think mine was a special case, as I was brought on to help the team understand a product that they really knew nothing about and needed my skillset.
