Interview

After receiving an e-mail, l was scheduled for an phone interview with a very rude lady. I asked for accommodations during the interview because of a permanent disability, and the lady told me l quote :
"Five Rings is NOT a place for people with disabilities."
When l tried to explain that the American Disabilities Act requires Five Rings Capital to provide accommodations to people with disabilities, the lady laughed at me.
I don't recommend this firm to anyone . I advise management to this rude lady. Her initials are I.V .

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

    Interview

    The first round phone screening consists of "why five rings why trading" questions and math calculations with only 15 sec. time limit for each. It was really hard to catch up with the HR and she actually count down 15 seconds when you make the answer, be sure you have the answer before the countdown ends!!!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Five Rings Capital in December 2016.

    Interview

    First round HR phone interview with very little fit questions. Moved quickly into probability, estimation and expected value questions. Given 15 seconds to answer each question and given no feedback on your answer. Second round was a trader who described a game and walked you through it as you gave answers. No introduction or anything, jumped right into the game

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Five Rings Capital in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. Next week, I had a first-round phone interview. This interview consisted of a bunch of estimation questions, like how many bills could fit into a suitcase, how many deaths were there in the US in 2011, and what is the circumference of the Earth in miles. I had no idea how to answer these, and just guessed. The woman on the phone told me that these questions were to simulate the trading environment, where you have to think quickly on your feet. After the phone conversation, she sent me a link to an online math test, which I had to complete right then. This was very easy, like SAT math questions, and only took 15 minutes. Next week, I had a second round phone interview, consisting of one very difficult math question involving probability and determining the expected outcome of a game which was described to me. I struggled a lot with this question, and never heard back, so I probably did poorly.
