Did anyone else get the invite to do accelerated recruiting for Point72's Academy program? I got it, did the Hirevue, got the second round. Responded to HR's email about scheduling a time for the second round on Friday, but still haven't heard back? They're doing second rounds all this week, next week, and the week after.
Undergraduate interns can expect a behavioral interview, a technical interview, and then a super-day.
Other threads also mention case study tests and Bloomberg tests.
In regards to modeling tests, user @Thislife offered the following detail:
Short time-wise because it is largely a pre-built model with yellow rows for information you need to input.
Small revenue build and then typical three statement model. Basically do one calc or link for each row that needs it.
(1) DSO, DPO, DIO and cash conversion cycle
(2) Typical metrics such as ROA, ROE, ROIC
(3) EPS, Diluted EPS and how to calc. adjusted EPS
Some users commented on the reputation of the firm. However the "negative" reputation around the firm seems to be over inflated.
As someone who works in the HF industry, it's not viewed any differently than other multi-managers. The idea that for some reason another fund won't touch someone from Point72 is ludicrous.
The timeline from initial call to offer can be anywhere from a few weeks to two months.
