Is anyone familiar with the canvas fundamental research group within point 72? Nature of the work, comp, hours compared to front office, etc?

Did you got an offer?

Nov 28, 2018

I did not end up receiving an offer. Overall it was a bit of a disjointed/odd interviewing process. It began with a fairly normal phone interview with a director there. Upon follow-up, they told me they wanted me to perform a case study/research project. They say the project takes 20-30 hours which was about the case. After submitting the report, I was brought in for a half-day of interviews with various members of the team and then asked to explain/defend the report. After that it was radio silence for about a month until HR said all the feedback so far was very positive and they wanted a call (generic questions like non-compete, salary expectations etc.). Then radio silence again for another month until a generic rejection email.

Thanks so much for sharing - that is quite an interesting interview process. How tough was the case study? I just have an initial phone screening coming up but good to know that this could be what's on the other side of that. How long would you say that was all-in?

I wouldn't necessarily classify it as overly "tough" per se but it is time-consuming (on top of an already busy work week). I did not have previous experience in supply chain analysis nor in the industry I was researching so that made it somewhat more difficult than it may be to someone else, but if you put the effort in then you should be fine (then again I was rejected so maybe my report wasn't up to par. hard to tell since I didn't get direct feedback on what was good vs. bad about my presentation). The entire process lasted about 4 months.

Could you add more to the onsite interview portion? What the day was like, what types of questions were asked, if the interviews were driven more by experience than case study, etc.

Wondering this as well. I have a super day final round interview with them either this week or next week. Appreciate the help!

So it consisted of 5 one on one 30 minute interviews which ranged pretty widely in breadth. Most of it consisted of previous experience in your various roles and why you want the job etc. Strong emphasis is placed on worth ethic and ability to work the demanding hours of the role. Some questions relate to how you would solve a problem (e.g. impact of autonomous cars on trucking industry profits). There is plenty of time for you to ask your own questions about the role/group. Then at the end a bunch of people (roughly 10, definitely more than just the people you interviewed with) pile into the room and start asking you about the case study. The number of people is done to make you feel uncomfortable as really only a few participated asking you questions about the case study. Questions revolved around sources you used for your research, why you looked at certain things, your thoughts on the impact of various trends on the industry you were researching etc.
