    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Five Rings Capital.

    Interview

    Applied online through their site and heard back two days later wanting to schedule a call. My interview was basically a phone screen. Pretty technical and detailed for a phone screen, I was caught off guard a bit. The call was about an hour and a half long. Be ready to answer questions quickly, they really don't take time for small talk. There were about 50 questions in total. There were zero fit questions, almost all programming questions

    Interview Questions

    • Extremely minute details of the C language. Lots of structs, pointers, overloaded while loops where you had to keep track of multiple variables. Also a lot of types and printf statements. Overall not a very good test of any programming ability as the answers were only to be computed using pen and paper.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Five Rings Capital.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting. Got an email asking to schedule a phone interview a week later. The interviewer was an HR representative who seemed to be reading off a sheet of technical questions. You will not be notified whether you are right or wong before moving on to the next question. There were no fit questions.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Five Rings Capital in January 2015.

    Interview

    I only made it to the first round. It was a phone screening. The interviewer called about 10 minutes late, omitted an apology and was very quick in giving me the questions and hurried in general. The interview ended abruptly. She was really unnecessarily cold and made the process more unenjoyable than it should be. The questions were rigorous.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Five Rings Capital (Cambridge, MA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I applied from online school career service, and was given a telephone interview. The interviewee chose the slots from online survey. The interviewer asked me a few questions about my resume and then technical questions. The interviewer is expecting a really quick response, so I guess spending more time preparing the technique questions is important.
