Any suggestions and insight into which quant trading companies in the Boston area are newbie friendly?

I see horror stories of quant interviews on Glassdoor where the coding tests are at least Leetcode hard, answering as many math/stats questions as possible within 1 hour, 8-10 back to back interviews for 3-5 hours.

It looks really impossible to get it. I only have a Physics Phd that does little stats and no ML/AI. How should I prepare myself? How junior of a role should I aim for?

Companies I can find that are currently hiring are Akuna Capital, Acadian Capital, Arrowstreet Capital.
