    Summer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Allianz Global Investors in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Allianz Global Investors in October 2008.

    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

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Allianz Global Investors in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    They responded pretty quickly to my application and there only one interview. Then I started within two months.

    There were two interviewers. They asked questions about central banks and bonds in general. Took no more than one hour. Usually it's a good sign if they keep asking you questions, but don't lie, they will figure it out.
