    Interview Questions
    • One guy from structured finance with PhD from MIT bombarded me with brain teasers. Most of them were typical ones that you would expect to find from a brain teaser question guide.
      The most difficult/unexpected question that I got from this interview was when an MD asked me to walk through the steps of dealing with an unsatisfied client.
      Other than that... the rest were the typical behavioral and markets questions.

    Sales Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at BNP Paribas in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview was with the Director of FX Sales & Trading for a summer analyst position. The interview was in their NYC offices on 7th avenue in one of the offices on their trading floor. It started off well, we actually ended up speaking Spanish for the first 10 minutes even though I'm not Spanish nor is it on my resume. However he began to ask more technical questions about FX hedging strategies using forwards/futures, swaps, and options. I'm an equities guy with limited knowledge of FX strategies so I had some difficulty providing specific examples of concepts. I didn't get called in for another interview as they likely found someone with more experience in FX to take the position.

    I was notified I received an interview a week before the interview. I was interviewed by two MDs for my first round. It started as fit, but quickly turned technical, so I would say definitely over 50% was technical.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at BNP Paribas in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview was all fit based. No brainteasers or market questions. The most important part was being able to sell yourself. I interviewed with two guys from Prime Brokerage. To prepare for your interview though, you should still know all your market info, basic math, and obviously your fit answers. The interview depends heavily on the person that is interviewing you (i.e. trader = market questions).
