Yes, it was realized through the Sonru platform

Hi again, please if you still remember, could go recall what the sales and trading group exercises consisted of? Also was there any technical aspect of the interview. The AC invitation email is exactly as you've described but I don't want to be blindsided by a technical interview so I'd just like to confirm. Thank you! Less

S&T excercise: it is a stock picking exercise. Your team has 20 min to find the right stock, and the choice depends on the client's needs. In addition, the HRs will communicate 2 market news during this session: 1 at the beginning (market opening), 1 after 10 min. These news will obviously affect the choice. The individual interview could be technical, it depends on who will interview you: I was asked to talk about econometrics aspects, another candidate was asked to talk about IRS etc..but don't worry about it because they do not require you to know everything, they are more focused on your personality.

You’re in a room with three light switches, each of which controls one of three light bulbs in the next room. Your task is to determine which switch controls which bulb. All lights are initially off, and you can't see into one room from the other. You may inspect the room only once. How can you determine which switch is connected to which light bulb?

4 Answers

Call the switches 1, 2 and 3. Leave Switch 1 off. Turn Switch 2 on for five minutes and then turn it off. Turn Switch 3 on. Enter the room. If a bulb is on, it's controlled by Switch 3. Feel the light bulbs for heat. The warm bulb is controlled by Switch 2. The bulb that is off and cold is controlled by Switch 1. Less

Brain Teaser: you have 7 seemingly identical looking balls, only 1 is slightly lighter than the other 6. You are given a scale. How can you find the 1 lighter ball is you are only allowed to use the scale twice.

4 Answers

pick 3 random balls on one side of the scale, pick 3 more to put on the other end. if scale equals, the 1 unpicked ball is the lighter one. if one side is lighter than the other one, the lighter ball is among them. take 1 random ball out of 3 to put on one side the scale, put another on the other side...you get it by now. Less

can we not pick 2 on each side?

Add one ball to the scale at a time continuously . The lighter ball will show a slight difference at the scale when you adding up the weight. Like if the first ball is 12g, then adding the next one will be 24, 36, etc and the one that was slightly off will be the lighter one. I think this count as using the scale once because I use it continuously Less

Unreasonable Group

The trial projected gave two sample situations for the company and asked the applicant to respond with a list of potential funds and investor contact information that pertain to the sample scenarios. The second sample asked for a full regional strategy and the names and emails of 20 investors in a four-page summary.

Folks - this interview was with the Unreasonable Group, not the Unreasonable Insitute. Confusing, I know. Less

Thank you all for your thoughtful dialogue around this interview process. As head of People Operations at Unreasonable, I take personal responsibility for this mistake and consider it the greatest mistake I've made in my career thus far at Unreasonable. We are and were a young company at the time we carried out this hiring process. I'll admit in early 2017 we were just figuring things out, but we've learned so much and implemented coutless improvements to our hiring process since then. The trial project request for emails was a grave mistake but an honest oversight. The intention was never to collect contact details but simply to learn how a candidate would think about curating a network of investors in greatest alignment with the entrepreneurs we support. I remain sick to my stomach everytime I recall this oversight in the prompt language and personally promise no such mistake has occurred since. I hope readers can recognize a young company's growing pains but acknowledge how far we've come and apprecaite our commitment to learn always and continuously improve our processes as guided by our company values. Less

I too was sent the questions, because they indicated I was in top 20% of applicants applying, and provided my network contacts. I hesitated before responding for the same concerns, that I would be divulging social capital that I cultivated over years. I didn't event get the courtesy of an interview in the end. However, I feel sure that they will use this ploy to develop their rolodex on the cheap. It strikes me as an "unreasonable tactic". I should have listened to my gut and given this a miss. I feel like I've been used. Less

You have a stick of length 1, and you break it at a (uniformly) random position along its length. Take the longer of the two resulting sticks, and break it somewhere randomly along its length. What is the probability that you can make a triangle out of the three pieces?

4 Answers

2ln2-1

It reminds of a typical probability problem. Correct answer probably is 1/4.

100% a triangle it's a polygon with three sides, no matter what you do you have three sides. Therefore you can always make a triangle.... Less
