Intern Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and interviewed at Commerzbank.
Interview Details – applied online, contacted by HR for a telephone interview, interview with 2 consultants, general questions, a small case, couple days later the offer. From the hiring process one could deduce that the position is bad, because they send me the offer even without seeing me in personal. That means for me, that they do not value the candidate, and I was a cheap intern for them. At end, it was unfortunately the case.

Mortgage Advisor Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Commerzbank in August 2009.
Interview Details – Interview process combined of two 30 min interwiews, it was rather enjoyable. Not many questions about hard knowledge, it is a sales position and therefore most of the question were more about your personality and ability to be easy -going. its easy to get in but the ob itself requires a lot of self motivation and you need to take under consideration that what you make from your commision- that;'s pretty much all.
Interview Question – standard interview questions, nothing unexpected. I know now they (again) need people, Answer Question
Negotiation Details – there was little negotiations, they were desperte to hire someone and afterall the postion was on self-employemnt so no benefits. Only thing that you are able to negotiate is length of your vacations, they need people so you will be able to get 3 weeks (even in the first year) Remeber- selemployment so no salary for that period
