    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Operis in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted a CV and cover letter based in response to an advertised position. Operis got back to me within 3 weeks to arrange an interview. Overall the interview went for 1.5hrs.

    The interview was divided into 3 components:
    1) A 30min essay to test communication skills- I was given a list of 10 fairly diverse topics/questions from which I had to write about one
    2) Standard CV and background discussion with 2 Operis staff- One from HR and the other a senior analyst. I was also tested on what Operis does and what makes a financial good model
    3) Brain teases and mental arithmetic type questions. Similar to the questions here http://www.techinterview.org

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in City of London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Operis in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    First round interview involved a surprise essay: choose one topic to write about for a half hour from a selection. Followed by a series of motivational questions and mathematical brainteasers (many available online, the most comprehensive selection I found were under "Jane Street" interviews on Glassdoor!)

    Second round involved preparing and presenting a financial model from a given case study (provided a week prior to the interview). Further clarifications of details related to the model and mathematical brainteasers. This was followed by an informal meet with current analysts.

    Both interviews were 1:2.
