    Application

    The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors (Austin, TX) in May 2011.

    Interview

    have to take an excel skills test and a test to compare the differences between two seemingly identical documents. first phone interview then two rounds of on site interviews. had 5 separate back-to-back interviews at each on-site interview (I think to test stamina). if interviewing, go out of your way to know what makes DFA different (specifically how they measure risk).

    The whole interview process was really easy. The phone interviews were more conversational then anything, just screening really. In person interview was very low pressure. Technical questions were a cinch.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    2 interviews , mainly questions on cv and personality. Not very technical. Focus on data quality and customer skills. Interviewers were pretty nice and relaxed. Second stage video conference was a little bit more probing in terms of depth of answer, Seemed like good place to work. Was a back office / middle office role but the normal process seemed to suggest a more front office role would be possible in couple of years
