    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at D. E. Shaw & Co. - Investment Firm (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    I got an interview for an internship position through on-campus recruiting at my university. It was a very quantitative, one on one interview with mostly brainteaser questions and some math problems. I was kind of unsettled by the interviewer. I didn't get past this first round, but I assume they have fit interviews for the later rounds.

    Interview

    Very professional and quick. Seems like a great place to intern, but was not selected. Practice on brain teasers and logic questions. They want fast thinkers who are competent as problem solvers.
