CIB Trainee Interview

CIB Trainee
Brussels (Belgium)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at BNP Paribas in July 2011.

Interview Details – A very lenghty and unclear process, after 4th stage I was informed to have 1 more interview, and then 1 more and after maybe another... The whole prcess took more than 2 months, very poor communication, very arrogant and unhelpful staff, the offer was presented just on the final stage (so after a 2-month recruitment process) and was very disappointing, definitely below market offers...

Interview Question – Analysis of the file with 30-40 emails in 1h, deciding on priorities, actions, etc.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Poor salary, poor benefits

No Offer

Negative Experience

Very Easy Interview
