    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Five Rings Capital.

    Interview

    Horrible interview process... The HR officer showed up about 40 minutes late than the scheduled time. The voice was really really low and she spoke so quickly that I can hardly follow what she said. I just wonder if the HR can do this kind of questions by herself. Please, show some respect to your interviewees if you really want to get talented people.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Five Rings Capital.

    Interview

    I applied through my college, and received an email about 2 months later to schedule a first round screening. It was a phone interview, and there were three parts to it. First, compliance, then behavioral, then math. For the math questions, I couldn't use a calculator or computer, but could use pencil and paper. I had 15 seconds to answer each question, which the interviewer repeated twice, and then reminded me when I had 5 seconds left. I was told that I should answer all questions within 15 seconds or it would severely impact my ability to pass the math section. There were 6 questions. I then was told that my answers would be reviewed and I would be contacted about whether I had moved on to the next round of screenings.

    Interview Questions

    • Why trading, specifically at five rings?
      Are you applying to any other internships currently?
      Do you have any pending offers?
      If not trading, what do you want to do?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Five Rings Capital (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The HR that you will be speaking with will be talking extremely quick, so make sure to pay close attention to what she will be asking. As with any interview, the interviewer will ask you few behavioral/standard questions, but will shift to the more technical aspect of it. The questions are rather simple arithmeitc questions, and you will have only 15 seconds to answer them. Whether you have an answer or not, say something at the end. These questions are to see how you will fair in a real work environment, where you will have to be quick with numbers. Overall the experience is quite enjoyable, and really shows you what to expect for when you apply to a top notch firm like this
