Summer Internship Interview

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jane Street in February 2012.

Interview

Several rounds of phone interviews, consisting of mental math, probability questions and brain teasers. They ask you about how confident you are about your answer and make you to bet (virtual) money on your answer.

Interview Questions

  • A bus pulls up to a stop. 3/4 of the people get off and 7 get on. Repeat two more stops with the same results.

    What is the smallest number of people that could’ve initially been on the bus??

  • Suppose you are given the opportunity to bid for a treasure chest, which you know to be priced uniformly anywhere between £0-£1000. If you bid equal to or above the price, you win the treasure chest (at the cost of your bid). If you bid below the price, you do not earn the treasure chest.
    Now, also suppose you can sell the treasure chest for 1.5 times the price of the treasure chest (should you obtain the chest). What should your bid be?
