I interviewed at Bridgewater Associates

Interview

Interview questions were essentially debate prompts. I was asked about my stance on a topic and had to defend or concede objections that the interviewers brought up. There were 2 rounds, with two interviewers in each. I think usually there is a group interview, but not in my recruiting cycle because of covid.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bridgewater Associates (New York, NY)

Interview

Interview process was 4 rounds total, with one designated to being strictly a culture conversation. Overall, the process is thoughtful, intense, and intentional. The questions are thought provoking and there were brainteasers and an excel case study, even for a back office role. However, I appreciated this as it does a good job of testing logical thinking and reasoning, there are no fewer surprises when they hire someone.

Interview Questions
  • How do you handle criticism?
  • Would you be okay telling your boss he/she was wrong?
  • Name a time I was directly criticized and what I did to overcome
  • I get a random call from a trader today asking if something they want to do is OK and no one is available for me to ask for help. What do I do?

I interviewed at Bridgewater Associates

Interview

There's a group discussion and then a one on one (or a two on one). Minimal focus on actual finance (they believe they'll have to re-teach everything anyway), so the discussions are about broader socio-political or sometimes ethical questions. Focus is on the ability to systematically explain your thinking ("what's your framework?") Having a super clear reasoning tree is helpful.

Interview Questions
  • They actually let interviewees suggest their own questions sometimes.

The whole interview experience was so great. Recruiters were very very nice, and considerable. It took about a month from the first step to onsite interviews. Relax is the most important, also be confident.
