    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BlueMountain Capital Management (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Mostly positive, thoughtful questions. One of the portfolio managers I met couldn't be bothered, though. Asked me sell-side questions for a buy-side role. Had zero questions regarding how I would fit in with the culture, which they keep bragging about on their website.

    Interview Questions
