    Quantitative Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Bridgewater, NJ

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at marketRx in February 2008.

    Interview Details

    This was probably the most interesting interview I've ever been on. It actually took place in February 2006, but the pulldown menu does not allow me to select past 2008. I met the employer at a job fair at Rutgers University. I had previewed the positions the company was recruiting for beforehand and discussed my interest in their high level analyst position (post grad skills needed: math, operations research, stats, etc...). About a month later I received a call from their HR rep. I was directed to a manager and asked a few screening questions, specifically about my programming skills, particularly for use in statistical models and simulations. I was asked to come in about a week later and meet with various directors, managers, and senior analysts. This took the entire morning.

    30 minutes: Puzzle/Critical Thinking test: 1 probability question, 1 profit maximizng question, 1 lightswitch puzzle question, and one other question I cannot recall.

    30 minutes: Meet with a manager and senior analyst and go over the "Test". They claim they didn't put as much weight on getting questions right, but rather how your thought process is evoked.

    30 minutes: Met with another group of two members. I'm certain it was another set of either manager/director + senior analyst. This group asked questions about my statistical experience in school and what I learned in my classes and why this coursework generated interest to work in their field of business. This interview was rather easy going. The interviewers made feel comfortable and open up.

    30 minutes: I met with another group of 2 members. This interview concentrated on the statistical model I was using for my Master's thesis at the time. I felt absolutely uncomfortable in front of these two guys. I had an easier time with my Thesis Committee at school than them. They grilled me over and over about certain specifications of the mixed logit model I was using in my research.

    After the interviewing process , I was told I would hear from them soon.

    No calls or interviews. I emailed the HR rep, about 2-3 weeks later a received a copy/paste decline letter.

    I was very disappointed with this company. For such a demanding interview process their feedback mechanism should have been better facilitated. I wrote thank you letters to all members of the company I interviewed with. They should at least have the courtesy to provide feedback. A simply copy/paste reply from their HR rep left a bad taste in my mouth.
