I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Deutsche Bank CIB (Cary, NC) in August 2014.
The whole process took about a month, which felt a bit long. There was an HR-type phone screen. A phone screen with the hiring manager, a submitted code sample, and an in-person interview with the team.
- I was asked to submit a sample of my coding work. I was asked about general OO principles and web architecture. There were no "trick" questions. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Deutsche Bank CIB (Cary, NC) in May 2014.
I have applied through an employee referral. I was called for an in person interview. There were other interviewees called the same day as it was a hiring drive event. First there was a company tour and then an overview about the company benefits etc, then was the interview with a Panel of two. After the interview I was called the same day in the evening about the acceptance.
- Questions were mostly related to prior experience and day to day activities and how I tackled them Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
When I got the call about the acceptance I was told that a specific HR will contact me and help me going forward. I emailed the HR and got a reply that I will be contacted shortly. I wanted to talk about the salary but to no avail the HR never responded to my calls. Then I finally get the offer letter my mail, no negotiation and was expected to sign and send it back. Meanwhile I got an offer from another company and took it.

Hiring is pretty easy. Just brush up on basic questions
- Most difficult questions are from HR or managers, not technical Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Deutsche Bank CIB (New York, NY) in February 2012.
Submitted my CV through my school's career service and got an on-campus interview. First round was relatively easy; 30min behavioral interview, the typical "walk-me-through-your-resume" questions.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Deutsche Bank CIB (New York, NY) in July 2010.
I was hired imediately after the interview. I later found out that they had been looking to fill the position for 6 months, but when the job was described in the interview, no one would take it. I was desperate, because I had not found a F/T job (only time-limited contract work/freelance) for over a year. I had just filed for bankruptcy, and was paying $500/mo for COBRA. I was given the choice of 2 starting dates, 2 weeks apart.
I had to provide an original college degree, signed by the registrar. The one I scanned didn't show the raised registrar's stamp and was not accepted so I had to show the the original.. I don't think they ran a credit report, just a crirminal background check. After being hired, you go to their NJ office via PATH (which is beautiful, right on the water) to fill out paperwork & do drug test. One of my medications set of the drug alarm but they immediately assumed that was the case; I don't remember if I had to prove it with an MD's note, but I don't think so.
- I can't think of one. I was told in the interview that the job would be very flexible re: hours. This was DEFINIFTELY not true. I was also told I would go from contractor to employee in 3 months. That also never happened, even though they kept me on as a contractor for a year. Later I found out that many temps had been promised a F/T during their interviews, but it never happened, after being ther 1.5 years.And we're talking people who worked way past the "higher ups" had gone home. I don't know a single person who put in LESS than 60 hrs/wk, at all levels of the org. (without charging O/T, which was frowned upon.) Answer Question
Essentially it was "take it or leave it".

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Deutsche Bank CIB (London, England (UK)).
Recruiter, 4 rounds of interviews, a lot of technical questions, some people were quite aggressive and unpleasant. The entire process took a very long time.
I was asked motivational questions
- where do you see yourself in 5yrs time
- why do you want to change jibs
- construct a portfolio that is long vega and flat gamma
- how many basketballs are there in USA
- what is price of one touch if you know the price of digital
- Math questions, brainteasers Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Deutsche Bank CIB in December 2014.
Placed through university placement process. First there was a round of resume short listing for the interviews. They looked for finance experience with good CGPA as well as extra curricular. This was followed by 3 round of interviews. 2 of them were technical (finance) based and the 3rd one was HR.
- Questions were based on derivatives, derivative pricing strategies like straddle and strangle, importance of dervatives, current economic news like oil crisis/ quantitative easing followed by few HR questions. Also questions were based on CV specially on my finance internship at Goldman Sachs. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks – interviewed at Deutsche Bank CIB (Birmingham, England (UK)) in November 2014.
First round interview and assessment day. Applied online, then received online tests. About a week later got invited to the first round interviews at their Birmingham office. First interview was more competency based with a few brainteasers and technical questions. About a week later got invited to the final round which consisted of 2 panel interviews. Both were a mix of technical questions but they also tried to determine whether candidate is a good fit to the culture. Overall, experience was great, would definitely recommend to apply even though its not in London - a lot exposure from early on.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Deutsche Bank CIB in October 2014.
15 day process, from campus- CV shortlisting, Aptitude test- completely quantiative, one workshop, multiple telephonic interviews, 3/4 final interviews conducted. Questions ranged from technical to CV based. Technical Round was slightly stressful. Be thorough with basic concepts of finance. On the HR side, know why you want investment banking and what would they expect out of you.
- Accounting Standards Application Answer Question
- Declined Offer
Pretty easy overall. some puzzles and basic financial knowledge being the only requirements. A specific focus was on the larger understanding of the derivatives market as opposed to nitty-gritty of the mathematical models. Helps to know basics about options, forwards and bonds.
