    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Quantlab.

    Interview

    It was an interview in a physics conference in March 2017.
    Before the interview. I submitted my resume prior the conference and was informed to have an one-on-one interview with a quantitative research scientist. The HR was nice and helpful. I was told that I would be fine without financial knowledge and they valuated the analytical skills of physicists.

    Interview: the quantitative research scientist that was a physicist (South Asian, maybe) started with asking a coupling questions like "what is your research". But I already felt something bad, because he was always looking around when I was answering. Then he started to flip his notebook and pick questions from it. And the questions were what shown below. I don't know how many physics new grads have studied decision theory and risk analysis. In any case I said that I heard about these and explained what they were although I did not study them. Again, his head was like a pendulum turning left and right. By the moment I knew I was done. This guy likely did not want to give me a chance from the beginning.
