    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at D. E. Shaw India (New York, NY) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Bad experience of telephonic interview.
    Pros: They gave me a call on time.
    Cons : I gave interview for the technical recruiter role but I wasn't aware Non-technical recruiter will take my first telephonic round. That to call only last for 12mins. He was more focusing to understand my current company's hierarchy. Did not ask me a single question related to my current work and the hiring i have done till now.

    Interview

    The interviewers were fine but they were very late to the place of hiring and we candidates had to wait hours to take the interview. At the end of the tedious interview, I was told that I was waitlisted and that I would get an official email from them but never got it. When I called them up almost a year asking about the same, they told me that they had no records of me being waitlisted, which was very disappointing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at D. E. Shaw India (Hyderabad (India)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    REally pathetic and long. there were 3 telephone interview and post that they call you for in-person interviews at hyderabad office. Team members are so old stagnant backward thinking style people, they will conduct the same interview in person with the same person. Sort of illogically wasting of time.

    Meanwhile the job role is posted again when you are invited for final round which too isnt great. There were 2 working hours wasted waiting for people in office who start their day at 12pm and then abruptly calling off the rest interviews with HR coz they are too busy. In summary pathetic experince with this team. Sounded so intimidated by knowlegable candidates and too careless to value others.

    Be aware to get into this trap called DE shaw whose glittering offices and pay won't keep you satisfied for too long unless you are the unprofessional naive kindof person who wants to be rooted in their local office like their team forever.

    Careful and be never a loyal interviewee to them Because they are probably plotting against you. There is no point applying or showing interest. They will not get you into their team unless they know their old backward thinking is not challenged and they are in safer positions. No growth or any rise expected. poor management.
    If you prefer to be rotten in the environment for decades do join these guys, else smart ones steer clear!
