Intern Interview

Intern
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Allianz Global Investors.

Interview Details – 7 interviews, 20 minutes each, held on the same day. Directors and MDs from various business functions interviewed me. The posting was generic, and the interviewers gather after all interviews and select which candidates they would like for their specific departments. The idea is to have an adaptable personality because you can get shut down by the majority even if one interviewer likes you
