    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at D. E. Shaw India (Hyderabad (India)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Very unclear process. Started with a Telephonic (hackerrank codepair) interview which got rescheduled multiple times. Then the result is not immediately shared - had to wait one week to get any kind of response from them. Then followed by 5 rounds of onsite ( in the office )

    They are never frank and open through out the process - not clearly stating what they are looking for and what the job role exactly is. Instead they spread the questions across all continents and expect us to know and do everything. Even after answering everything perfectly you never know how and why you get rejected - especially after wasting multiple days attending their interviews which get rescheduled at last minute.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at D. E. Shaw India (Hyderabad (India)).

    Interview

    Initially at the orientation it was said that anyone willing to join the company irrespective of their background is always welcome. So after I got through the GD I was all set for my interview. The HR in the middle of my interview had to change the room due to some internal issues. It took about 30min and later that I was asked irrelevant questions. Despite saying I'm looking for a concrete job, the HR seemed annoyed for some God forsaken reason and didn't comprehend well and told me to get back to my old job. I'm a student holding MBA in HR and a behavior like that for an aspiring HR like me went offbeat. I knew I'd make a great asset to their organization but the HR was a moron.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at D. E. Shaw India.

    Interview

    The interview was good, concise, asked relevant question but they delay a little when they have to inform the candidate whether it may be a yes or a no. If they have said that it will take 4 day, take a week to get back to the candidate not 1 month.
