    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Jane Street in June 2019.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me for a phone screen. There were no behavioral questions, strictly probability questions. The interviewer explained the process and got straight into the questions. I got stuck multiple times and he tried to give me hints. Got my rejection about 2 weeks later.
