    What Point72 really pays its interns

    Late last week, we put together some data on how much several of the biggest and most well-known hedge funds pay their interns, courtesy of new survey figures from Wall Street Oasis. We reached out to the firms for comment and, rather unsurprisingly, didn't immediately hear back.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Point72.

    Interview

    I received an email to set up time for a 30 minutes recruiter phone screen. The recruiter called 10 minutes late and seem extremely bored over the phone. It seemed like she already had an idea of me in her head and was just doing the interview because she had to. A day later I received an email saying they weren't proceeding with my application...shocking.
