Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through an employee referral The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bridgewater Associates (Westport, CT) in Dec 2017

Interview

The interview was a day long process that consisted of a generic interview, a case study, and a group discussion. Before the interview, candidates are required to take out personality assessments and familiarise themselves with the Bridgewater culture through a series of videos, which gives an incisive look into what the culture really is about and allows candidates to decide whether they see that as fit for them. Following this, you are invited to its office in CT for a day long interview. Each interview is conducted with a different interviewer and the questions are structured to prod the candidate on his/her way of thinking and provide tough, critical feedback on the spot. The interviews are undoubtedly some of the smartest people I have met, with a lot of depth as a result you leave each interview slightly shaken, but also inspired/learning something new about yourself. The interview process as a whole is one of the most insightful and intellectually rigorous/rewarding process that I have been through. Go in expecting to be challenged, and the process - regardless of the outcome - will be very rewarding.

Interview Questions

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.

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.

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

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

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