    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bridgewater Associates (Princeton, NJ).

    Interview

    I interviewed through campus recruiting. They have a group interview where you are expected to debate a topic provided by the interviewees and then an individual fit interview with some short case studies or brain teasers. For the former, they seem to look for candidates who can argue forcefully and decisively, rather than those who weigh all sides. You should also respond appropriately to others comments. They give a response the same day as the interview.

    Interview

    Phone Call by a recruiter, then a set of online personality tests that took roughly 2 hours. Never received any feedback once the exams were completed and sent in. Company culture is extremely important to Bridgewater, especially in the hiring process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bridgewater Associates (Princeton, NJ) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very different from other interviews - had you talk about your personal life via Sonru, fill out a ton of personality tests, and showcase your "discussion skills" in an open-ended debate-style discussion where the interviewers mainly watched, sometimes interjecting to keep things on pace. It felt kind of weird because there were certain people who were eager to talk and talked over others, but I wasn't sure if that was something they liked or disliked. Overall, it was hard to tell what they were looking for, and whether or not what they were looking for would actually be shown through the open group discussion.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bridgewater Associates (Westport, CT) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I received an email from a Bridgewater recruiter to apply for a position. I made it through the initial process and had a first round interview. It was a group interview and made me feel fairly uncomfortable with the way that they wanted to know if I would be able to handle the intensity of the job and the intense, competitive culture there. As well as the debate with other students, which became too much for me.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bridgewater Associates (Cambridge, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applicants filled out a brief application form. Those who were then invited for interviews (which may have been everyone) were asked to take a series of personality tests. The first round interview was a group discussion about a philosophy question; each applicant proposed a question, and the interviewers selected one. Three Bridgewater employees—all of them Investment Associates, not Management Associates—observed us; only one of them spoke.

    Interview

    The interview process was interesting. First round involved basic questions and answers and second round involved discussion group questions. Everyone came with a question which they had to share with the group and then one question was picked and then debated on.

    Interview

    After a resume submission I was contacted for a first round interview. The first round was a group interview. We gave brief introductions, and then were asked to pose a "challenging question." Then the 2 interviewees picked one of these challenging questions and had us discuss it openly. That was the interview.
