    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Allianz Global Investors (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Had 6 20 minute interviews with varying hiring managers from across all different departments. All were very friendly and seemed to have a clear idea of the intern's future work. I think they are just looking for a fit personality wise. No real technical questions other than do you know excel, powerpoint, etc. Have an idea of where your interests align with the managers departments and you will do fine.

    Interview Questions

    • None really. Sometimes answering questions for a department you are not interested in is awkward.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Allianz Global Investors (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through my online career center. They called me to schedule a super day. I went into the office and had 7 back-to-back 15 minute interviews. They were all with managing directors from across the firm. Most of the questions were behavioral, mainly seeing if you could fit into the culture. Only one of the 7 interviews was technical. Allianz really values culture, so a lot of the questions were about what I wanted out of the internship experience and the directors spent a lot of time explaining the culture.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Allianz Global Investors (New York, NY).

    Interview

    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

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Allianz Global Investors (New York, NY) in October 2008.

    Interview

    The interview was done through a cycle of all the VP's within the department. Most VP's are very laid back and clearly would like to know you personally. Some VPs are very technical and would like to know how much you know or not know. Overall it is a very easy laid back interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Allianz Global Investors (Frankfurt am Main (Germany)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Typische Fragen bei Bewerbungsgesprächen wurden lediglich am Anfang zu Auflockerung gestellt (1 oder maximal 2 sollte man erwarten). Beispielsweise, warum ich BWL studierte habe und nicht z.B. VWL oder Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen. Danach ausschließlich stellenrelevante Fragen. Am Ende konnte ich Fragen stellen. Allgemein folgt auf die eine, direkt die nächste Frage. Sie bauen jedoch alle aufeinander auf. Man sollte schnell und präzise antworten können.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Allianz Global Investors.

    Interview

    Online application (CV and some questions)and two online aptitude tests (logic and numerical). The numerical part was relatively hard to answer because more complicated charts and tables. I couldn't finish all so the rest of 4 or 5 questions I just guessed. Receive phone interview invitation one month later after finishing the online tests. The phone interview focused on competency and questions related those in the online application.

    Interview Questions

    • There's no particular difficult question in the phone interview.   Answer Question
