    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at BNP Paribas.

    Interview Details

    Very easy as their scope of intellectual talents are limited for long term employee who cannot work elsewhere. Just maintain positive attitude and show an interest and you would be fine as long as you appear sufficiently unthreatening to their positions.

    Negotiation Details
    I did not challenge the offered amount. Very fast and closed in a few days.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Zürich (Switzerland)
    Anonymous Employee in Zürich (Switzerland)
    Application Details

    interviewed at BNP Paribas in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was a very short interview with an impatient woman who seemed to be distracted by other things. I believe I was under-qualified for the job, that's why. But still everyone deserves a chance and I thought my innate qualities were more important than my resume or degrees. I realize I was nervous and intimidated which probably didn't help. Confidence is very important when interviewing with banking institutions.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me about a valuation method that I didn't understand and hadn't learned in school.   View Answer

    I interviewed online - interviewed at BNP Paribas in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, passed the first interview (group interview, 3 people). Questions were petty basic. Why do you want to work at BNP Paribas? What are your strengths? Where do you see yourself in 10 years? The first interview was in Japanese.
    The second interview was double, one with a trader, the other one with a sales person. Both in English. Questions: How do you think you will fit here? What are your weak points? What do you study in university? What was your biggest failure, etc.
