Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors (Charlotte, NC) in January 2017.

Interview

First round phone screening was about basic resume walk through and she asked me how I knew this company and why I want to join. Second round phone screening, a PhD from the team asked me what projects I had done. He really cared about what software you use, what data base experience and you had experience with big data. Different from the reviews I saw below, no questions were asked about Fama French or Efficient market.

Interview Questions

  • Have you work with big data before? What programming language do you use? Have you used Compustat?   1 Answer

    Starts out with one phone interview by a recruiter. The follow up interview was done by someone in the department you apply for. Very basic questions for a finance internship interview: personal investment philosophy, current events, career plans, etc.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very standard, first interview was just asking questions about your resume and why dimensional/ internship. Conversational and the interviewer was cool. Their opening a new office in Charlotte so they're recruiting heavily. Still waiting to here back.
