Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at D. E. Shaw & Co. - Investment Firm (New York, NY) in October 2016.

Interview

Initial phone screen followed by an onsite with both single and group interviews. The interviews were for the most part non-technical. Although they claimed to be looking for people with general skills, from the questions they asked, they seemed more interested in specific areas of knowledge. It was clear from the first initial interview at the onsite I did not have what they were looking for, so it is unclear why I was even asked to come.

    Interview

    -it had 1 written, 2 technical, 1 stress interview and 1HR round. (campus selection process)
    -written was very tough n very less time was given, negative marks for wrong marking.
    -somehow i got through the written round
    -first round for me was so shocking, completely non technical questions were asked in my panel, the other panel was asking only technical questions.
    - well i didnt clear my first round, my friend had cleared.
    -for him second round was in the other panel n technical stuff were asked, but was easy.
    -first round they asked me some shocking and unexpected questions.
    - stress interview was really stressful, they asked differences between a game n a sport..
    - seems easy, but some ppl come out of interview hall n burst out in tears. they got seriously offended.
