I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at D. E. Shaw & Co. - Investment Firm in November 2012.

Interview Details

Got the interview through campus recruiting. Mainly focused on my resume but two parts that stood out included correcting a profit and loss spreadsheet that had a few visual and technical mistakes as well as the interviewer asked me to "teach him something he probably did not know about."
