    Global Stock Selection Researcher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at AQR Capital Management.

    Interview Details

    I cant disclose much of the interview process as its catered to each candidate. This place is unlike any cookie cutter shops that they hand in a interview sheet or questions or programming test at least not at the mid- senior level. At entry level, it is a different story.

    Risk Management IT Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at AQR Capital Management in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    HR emailed me saying we might have a potential fit, but didn't tell me which exact position are they considering me for, even after specifically asking. They asked me for time slots, and once I provided that(thinking they might answer my questions after HR screening), they don't bother to confirm the interview timings, nor did they bother to tell me whether its a HR interview or with the Hiring Manager. The Hiring manger ends up calling me during one of the time slots provided, and I wasn't expecting that. The Hiring manager tells me that this is the position you are being considered for(during the interview) and right away starts with the interview questions. I think this was very unprofessional on the part of HR.

    Vice President Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at AQR Capital Management.

    Interview Details

    Interview was on the phone, the communication of interviewer was not very clear. I have the impression that the interviewer may be looking at questions while asking questions but was not realizing that interviewee can't see the questions.
    The questions were simple and face to face may be a better alternative.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at AQR Capital Management in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was invited to their New York office. It is a small and cozy place, about 100+ people. It was a full day interview, and they provided lunch. The questions were very hard, and I do not think anybody can get them all correct.
