Intern Interview

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)

    Very fast. I applied and it took less than 24 hours for a recruiter to reach out. Sounded like would immediately get a phone interview but slapped with a pre-activity.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Jane Street (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    The interview was just two questions related to probability and math. The interviewer was extremely friendly and helpful in answering questions. Still waiting to hear back, but it was very fun as the questions were challenging but enjoyable.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jane Street (New York, NY) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Applied online through their website. I go to a top 10 school (which was previously not a target school for Jane Street) so I'm not sure how much of a factor this was in their decision to interview me. Within 1 week of submitting my resume, they asked me if I wanted to do a phone interview. They asked me 0 fit questions and a bunch of technical questions, mostly probability (and a couple of random mental math questions). All questions are expected to be done without the use of a pencil, paper, or calculator. I'd like to comment on company culture but I bombed this interview pretty badly and didn't get the 2nd round.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jane Street (New York, NY) in February 2011.

    Interview

    The people seemed fun. There were a few guys who were a little awkward. But it was Jane Street. Also a problem was that their HR department was incredibly slow. It took them weeks to schedule the next round interview. And then they would forget to call. It was very unprofessional.

    They seemed to only concentrate on Probability questions. A lot of expected value questions.
