    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jane Street (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I got my interview with Jane Street Capital by applying through my college career services website. The interview lasted for half an hour. There were zero personality, behavioral, or fit questions. All that the interviewer wanted to test was my quantitative skills. I was asked to perform mental arithmetic, and then he asked me how sure I was of my answer. He asked a few simple questions, but in the moment it's easy to make mistakes. Then he allowed me to take out a pencil and paper and he asked some statistics questions. Basically, the entire interview was just to assess my quantitative skills.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jane Street in February 2010.

    Interview

    Interview was a phone interview. Questions were quite difficult and they asked you to do all of the questions in your head with no pen, paper or calculator. No fit questions at all. For interview prep definitely practice a lot of brainteasers - there are also some forums online which have some of the questions which were good in preparing. I didn't get through the first round.
