Preview to 5 Five Rings Capital LLC Interviews Below

1. Technology Analyst Intern Interview

Process Description

Applied online. Received an email asking to set up a phone interview. Asked a series of C questions revolving around pointers and C syntax. I believe the interviewer was reading a list of questions and checking my answers against a list of answers. Got through the first round, a second phone interview was set up. This time the interviewer asked data structures questions. I thought I did decently but I did not get the offer.

Five Rings Capital LLC Sample Interview Question:

What is a Hash Tree? What are its benefits over a Hash Table?


2. Trading Intern Interview

Process Description

first round interview by phone, half an hour. There were couple of fit questions (why trading?) at beginning and then the math part. I answered rather quickly so the interviewer gave me about 8 questions in total this part. Then we came to the estimation part. I didn't realize that I had to give number in decimal point at the beginning so I missed the first one 51/123, even though I revised my answer at the 16 second... (You have to answer each one in 15 seconds) I did about 5 estimation problems. Lastly there were some fit questions like what you will do if you can't break in finance and which job you won't do even with a lot of money, etc. Lastly I asked what I can expect afterwards and they say if you pass you will have two more phone interviews and then an on-site.

Five Rings Capital LLC Sample Interview Question:

estimation part ( 15 seconds for each calculation such as 51/123, 9783/13, 73*341. Try to be as precise as possible after decimal point)


3. Trader Interview

Process Description

Brain teasers, estimations, personality questions. Vague answers did not suffice. The first few questions were fit, then pressure test, then technical, then more fit.

Sample Interview Question at Five Rings Capital LLC:

The most difficult question that was asked of me was in the first battery of questions regarding cash in a case. They asked me with very little time to estimate the amount of cash in a case.
