    Investment Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Carlos, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SoftBank (San Carlos, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Was sourced by a recruiter via LinkedIn and connected for an initial chat/screening. Was already well familiar with the company and Nikesh Arora's involvement, and after the informational call I decided to go ahead and submit my resume and begin initial interviews. Some interviews were done over video call, others in their bay area offices. Everyone was very personable and intelligent and was able to answer all my questions about the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic behavioral questions about my current and previous roles as well as investment case study questions (ex. would you invest in Uber?)   Answer Question
