    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at BNP Paribas.

    Interview Details

    Cold reception in the lobby with no company rep to welcome you. Unpleasant experience with manager who was more interested in explaining how he was the best at his position than to figure out if I was a fit for the open one.

    GECD Summer Analyst Intern 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 1+ weekinterviewed at BNP Paribas.

    Interview Details

    Went through five half-hour interviews back-to-back, and each interviewer had a "category" of questions to ask me (leadership, brainteasers, markets, sales and trading, and just me). Questions included tell me about a time when you motivated someone, what would you invest in, do you want to do sales or trading, basic fit questions). After the interviews I had a negative perception of the firm. Some of the interviewers were very aggressive and shot me questions very quickly, one scrutinized my resume and asked me to explain every single thing on it, and would go very in-depth... my explanations were always followed by "why?" The interviewers didn't do a good job of making me feel comfortable.
