janestreet - interview
This deserves a forum post coz it's kinda hilarious. One of my buddies working for JS just informed me about a hilarious interview.
They call up the interviewee who apparently is quite bright. This kid published some serious math papers before gettin a degree. They ask him a few elementary questions but this kid refuses to answer the questions and/or answers the questions correctly w/out providing any solution path. Kiddo felt offended by elementary questions and rejects JS for further consideration before JS can reject him for uncooperative attitude. Respect!
