    Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at BNP Paribas.

    Interview

    Interview process is lengthy and drawn out. Its difficult for the firm to make hiring and overall business decisions. Expect that you will need to meet many of the same people numerous times. In particular at the senior management level. Since almost all senior management is located in Paris, this will typically be via conference call or video chat

All of the interviewers are very nice, making feel comfortable talking to them. That was a Friday, and I got the offer on Monday. Accepted it.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at BNP Paribas (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview atmosphere was friendly yet professional. I thought the personnel rep was honest and straight forward. I interviewed with five people in two different locations (NYC and Jersey City) plus I interviewed with a human resources representative. I thought the offer was fair. The process took too long and dragged on for two months. The background check was very thorough.
