    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors (Austin, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    First round was a call with HR, then a call with team leader. Next they brought me in for an on site interview in Austin, TX. I met with 6 members of the team and a HR person on site. Most of the on site questions were about fit and investment philosophy, with a specific focus on why DFA and why you believe in efficient markets.

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors (Austin, TX) in May 2011.

    Interview

    have to take an excel skills test and a test to compare the differences between two seemingly identical documents. first phone interview then two rounds of on site interviews. had 5 separate back-to-back interviews at each on-site interview (I think to test stamina). if interviewing, go out of your way to know what makes DFA different (specifically how they measure risk).

    The whole interview process was really easy. The phone interviews were more conversational then anything, just screening really. In person interview was very low pressure. Technical questions were a cinch.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors in October 2019.

    Interview

    I applied to the Investment Solutions Analyst. The first round video interview conducted by a campus recruiter is difficult and technical enough. Asking about technical questions, (econometric model, skills, methods, and some probability questions), and 2 brainteaser questions. There was no behavioral questions at all! That was just the first round interview. So, if you are really interested in research and DFA, you should be 100% prepared. I didn't prepare well, so I don't think I can be moved forward.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    2 interviews , mainly questions on cv and personality. Not very technical. Focus on data quality and customer skills.

    Interviewers were pretty nice and relaxed.

    Second stage video conference was a little bit more probing in terms of depth of answer,

    Seemed like good place to work.

    Was a back office / middle office role but the normal process seemed to suggest a more front office role would be possible in couple of years
