DE Shaw - Interview Advice Needed

Hello fellow monkeys - I have a first round, 30 min phone interview in two days for an Associate level opportunity for D.E. Shaw's Credit Opportunities strategy in Hong Kong.

(Job Description) The D. E. Shaw group seeks a proprietary investment analyst for its Credit Opportunities strategy in Hong Kong. This strategy invests in high yield and distressed debt, credit driven special situations, and capital structure opportunities across the Asia Pacific region, including Australia and Japan.

I have read through the previous forum entries, which were helpful, however I am looking for any additional information on what to expect, and what I should prepare. I am not a quant, but a fundamental value investor (previous experience includes IB, PE, Mezz, Distressed, and Credit Long Short at hedge fund).

Any help will be invaluable. Man thanks in advance.
