    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Q Investments in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through website after seeing posting on university career site. Contacted via email to set up an initial phone interview in which the recruiter explained what was the company was and asked to hear about my background. At end of interview, recruiter explained that there would be 3 tests and a face to face interview -- I have to pass each test one by one in order to advance to the next test and then the face to face interview. The first test was a one hour long assessment. I had to answer about 15 essay questions regarding my work experiences and career aspirations. Then I was asked to complete the next assessment, which was a law document that I had an hour to review and revise. I did not make it to the next round.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Q Investments in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Apparently they require a 1200 minimum total score on your SAT tests, even if you took the test 17 years (or more) ago... I was disappointed to learn this fact and it sounded like the interviewer was disappointed that he had to turn away good potential candidates for this reason.

    Risk Analyst Interview

    Interview Details

    Very intense process. First, it starts out with a phone interview, which, if passed, is followed by an online test. The test consists of 15 or 16 questions that basically are trying to figure out if you can survive 12 hour workdays and are willing to sell your soul to your Blackberry. Then, you do a Microsoft Excel test. I didn't make it past this point.

    The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Q Investments in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    First you have a phone interview, then you take a internet test (testing your thought process and actions), then you come in for more interviews with at least 3-5 people (one right after another) and then you also take a skills test (on Word, excel, etc). Then you are contacted about your background as they do extensive screening.

    Recruiter Interview

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Q Investments in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed by 3 separate people. First interview very obscure questions asked. Second interview was very easy, thrown softballs. Third was a meet and greet. I was given a tour of the office, and the work environment appeared stressful. Long hours expected. Casual dress. Full reimbursement for travel given. I was impressed by the first recruiter, not so much by management.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Q Investments in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    Spoke on phone with partners. They had me send them my GMAT and ACT/SAT scores (who even cares about this anymore?). Had me take some overly retarded and simple excel tests that you can easily look up answers for on the internet while doing them (since they send these to you by email).

    Phone interview, which lead to a series of 2 tests. The technical test asks questions about two programming languages are not in the job description. Phone interview was standard, but long. The company is ran by a bunch of TCU grads so you have to know what comes with that territory.

    Started with a phone interview. Next have to fill out personality quiz. They then called me in for a in person interview. Not too bad, basic stuff. Mostly judging for a personality fit. Then you have a skills test. Again not too bad.
