    Computer Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Point72 in March 2013.

    Interview

    Telephone interview -- typical tech interview, seeking to assess technical knowledge in various areas. However, they also required a technical assignment be completed in c# programming language. This took somewhat more time that expected.
    The recruiter feedback indicated that the interviewer felt I had done well but wanted me to agree more with his ideas rather than discuss alternative approaches.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Point72 (New York, NY) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Resume was submitted by external recruiter. A few teams asked to set up a 1 hour phone screen. The phone screen started off with an informal description of the team and job and also of my background. Then 20 minutes in, we started on technical questions. They started off mostly about Python and Pandas.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Point72.

    Interview

    Met with HR and several Hiring Managers. Mostly personality questions but also asked questions about the market and trivial questions to get an idea on how you think and where your interests are. Asked standard questions such as how you work with people and what your strengths and weaknesses are. Interviewers are interested that you are knowledgeable about the company and probe into why you feel the job you are interviewing for is a good fit.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your weaknesses? How have you overcome these in previous jobs and in academics.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Great company, with a good culture. Invite employees and prospective employees to ask questions and encourage cross training throughout the company. Movement throughout the company is encouraged.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Point72 (Stamford, CT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Three steps in the interview process:

    1. Coding test through HackerRank (all MC) and personality test to make sure you're not a criminal
    2. Skype interview with a random person on the technology team
    3. Three back-to-back Skype interviews with three members of the team you want to join (either IT or development)

    Each stage had about a week in between before hearing back.

    Interview Questions

    • mostly stuff on my past experience (some of the interviewers went through my entire resume, so know everything on there really well). Also quite a bit of OOP concepts, know how to explain those very well. 3-4 brain teasers thrown in the entire interview process -- but all of these were very basic and they're just there to make sure you're not a potato.   Answer Question

    Received an email to complete a fit test and math test within 72 hours. The tests were pretty straightforward but I am really disappointed I did not get an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Point72.

    Interview

    the process largely depends on PM and groups. My friend was asked to solve a data analysis problem, but for me, they mainly asked about my previous experience. Generally, they want to find fit people.
