    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors (Austin, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Had two phone interviews (one with HR and another with a manager) then a super day of 6-8 interviews back to back in Austin. If one person that you interviewed didn't like you then you don't get an offer. All interviews were with people from various backgrounds and asked more questions related to their background. There was a lunch in between with two analysts who just got hired to help answer any questions outside of a one on one interview setting.
