Quantitative Researcher Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Austin, TX

The process took a day - interviewed at RGM Advisors, LLC in March 2010.

Interview Details – I had a first round interview with RGM which consisted of a one-on-one phone interview with an HR woman (although I could tell it was on speaker and I believe there may have been others in the room). The interview consisted of a walk through my resume, then a series of five questions. The questions were very simple: one calculus question, one probability question, one statistics question, one *nix question, and one predictive modelling question. I answered all of the questions correctly, then she asked me a bit about my past compensation.

At the end she said that I would hear back from hear next week, and since I answered all of the questions correctly and seemed to be a good fit, I would have a second interview with the head of HR next week. If I didn't hear from her next we, she asked me to send her a follow up email as she was very busy.

The next day, I sent her a thank you note and saying that I looked forward to hearing and reiterating my interest in the firm. I heard nothing from her that next week, so I sent her a follow up email. It has now been two months and I haven't heard anything from them which obviously means that I did not get the position. Overall, a very unprofessional way to handle the hiring process.
