if you've prepped for finance interviews, the finance technical portion shouldn't be too bad and the probability section you can use logic. If you're coming from a traditional finance background, you may not know all the "probability theories" that will be relevant like Bayes but you can honestly just use your head for those.

That was kind of hard. How do you guys think you did on it? I got a ton of probability and options questions with only one macro type question.

Just received an invite for a first round. Anyone else?


Aug 21, 2020 - 11:29am

yep, have my first round today, but applied to a couple of other positions so I'm not sure it's for this one. I have no idea what I'm supposed to prepare

Hey, how did your first round interview go?


Aug 19, 2020 - 6:28pm

Seems like everyone gets the assessment. I got it a few days after I applied and just got an invite to a first round interview with a recruiter. Got the invite day after I took the test.

Completed my first round earlier this week, was told by HR that I would be moving forward to second round phone interview, but yet to hear about the specifics.

Just finished my first round as well. Was told the same thing about moving on. So is the next round a final round or just second round? They didn't specify. 

Also, were you told if you were doing sell-side or buy side? They didn't ask me which I preferred, but my background is buy-side.

1st round wasn't bad at all. Very easy. Have a second round next week.

was told I'd be moving on at the end of my interview. Took a couple days to hear back about scheduling after that.

Wasn't told I would be moving on during the first round, but received a 2nd round invite via email awhile after so don't panic if if anyone's in a similar situation

Has anyone who has a sell-side ER superday last week heard back?

I have had 0 probability/brain teasers so far. First-round was just HR mostly behavioral. The second round was with an associate and some finance-related questions about your stock picks and your view on the markets in general.
