    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Five Rings Capital.

    Interview Details

    I sent in my resume then was contacted via email to have a phone screen. The questions posted by others here were exactly the questions that I was asked. I had a total of three phone interviews, with probability questions, some personality questions, and questions that seemed to be aimed at finding out how motivated I was by money (they had me name my least favorite possible job then asked how much money it would take for me to do that job).

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult thing was when they gave their personality test types of questions. They would give you a situation and you had to pick one of a few options, and it seemed like there was probably a preferred answer, but it was hard to know what it was.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Five Rings Capital.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, got an e-mail from the recruiter to schedule a 30-minute phone interview. No "fit" questions or anything and simply a bunch of technical exercises that I had time to complete. The lady was very abrupt and the whole interview felt pretty much like a probability exam.

    Interview Questions
    • There are 5 balls, 3 red, and 2 black. What is the probability that a random ordering of the 5 balls does not have the 2 black balls next to each other?   View Answers (2)

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Five Rings Capital.

    Interview Details

    I did a phone interview through which the lady asked me around four math/probability questions. They got harder as I went and the interview was supposed to be 30minutes, but I went up to around 45. She didn't seem too patient, and it was hard to tell sometimes what she was saying. She like sped up talking in her sentences.

    Interview Questions
    • In all the arrangements of a circular ordering (?) from 1 to 5 what is the expectation of the number(s) that are higher than the ones to both its right and left?   View Answers (4)

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Five Rings Capital.

    Interview Details

    several rounds of interviews

    Interview Questions
    • Despite the fact that I said I didn't know C, the interviewer proceeded to ask me a very long series of inane C syntax questions. Truly the most ridiculous interview I've ever had. She didn't bother to even ask me to solve any problems, only to predict the output of some small programs in C. It was also a phone interview, so she had to tell me character by character each program. What a waste of time.   Answer Question
