Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Jane Street (New York, NY) in December 2016.

Interview

Was asked if I wanted to take an online interview rather than a in person interview for first round. I elected to take the online interview. It was fairly easy, but I wasn't sure what to put down given the time constraints (a few slightly complex probability/expected value type questions in 30 minutes)

    Interview

    God contacted about a phone interview pretty quickly. Did poorly on the interview and didn't hear back for 2 weeks. Apparently the phone interviews get tougher and tougher. Be ready to work quickly and accurately with distractions

    • I'm thinking of an integer with no 0s or 1s. When you multiply all the digits of the number together, you get 10,000. What is the largest number I could be thinking of? The smallest such number?   3 Answers
