Summer Intern Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Jane Street.

Interview

I applied through my campus recruiting website. The interviewer was dressed casually and seemed very friendly. He asked me why I wanted the internship, then we jumped into probability questions, which took up most of the interview. When he could see that I was struggling with a question, the interviewer would sometimes give me hints. However, I don't think this helped with my chances.

Interview Questions

  • I have a 12 sided die and you have a 20 sided die. We each get two rolls and we can each chose to stop rolling on either one of the rolls, taking the number on that roll. Whoever has the higher number wins, with the tie going to the person with the 12 sided die. What is the probability that the person with the 20 sided die wins this game?   8 Answers

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jane Street in February 2011.

    Interview

    The 30 min interview consisted almost completely of mental math/probability questions. I did horribly, but the interviewer was very nice and told me to apply again in subsequent years. A lot of the questions were not terribly difficult, but I would need a piece of paper, so getting a wrong answer repeatedly was rather discouraging. Also, if I didn't know how to do a problem on the spot, the interviewer didn't move on; he just let me work it out until it was very, very obvious how wrong I was.
