Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Five Rings Capital.

Interview

First round the lady who interviewed me seemed very nice at first and very sweet. But as she began asking me the questions (pretty much the same exact questions that everyone has been posting) she would only give me 15 seconds and she was very rude to me.

Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Five Rings Capital (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I recieved a call from the lady, she seemed nice. The entire format seems pretty odd. First a few questions about salary, behavioral questions, and then technicals. Was asked to estimate weights and things like that, they wanted exact answers and didn't care for your reasoning for the most part. And then there were some math puzzles and things like that. You are only given a certain amount of time before you must answer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Five Rings Capital in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a phone interview (I was informed by phone although I did provide the email). By the time the HR called me it was 15 mins past the scheduled time. Questions are about estimation and I wasn't expecting that. Never hear a word from them after that. Everything seems quite unprofessional.
