Senior Executive Assistant Interview

Senior Executive Assistant
New York, NY

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Deutsche Bank CIB in July 2010.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – 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

Negotiation Details – Essentially it was "take it or leave it".

Intern Interview

Intern
Mumbai (India)

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Deutsche Bank CIB in April 2013.

Interview Details – Division: DB Centre (Mumbai) - Corporate Banking & Securities
Apply online in March 2013 and pass in-school selection, then go to regional office to attend video interview in one day.

Interview Question – 1st round: technical questions (such as what is QE, what is DCF model, etc.) and market news. For me there was not behaviroral questions but some other candidates got behavioral questions and brainteasers.
2nd round: questions about my previous internship experience and interviewers asked me very detailed questions. There were also questions about your motivation. Questions were generally followed by more detailed questions if interviewers found my answer interesting.
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Successful candidates are not supposed to negotiate on the offer as the offer is already very satisfactory (5 star hotel for 2 month internship on company cost).

Analyst Interview

Analyst
Kharagpur, West Bengal (India)

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Deutsche Bank CIB in December 2009.

Interview Details – Deutsche Bank came to our campus at IIT Kharagpur. There were 3 rounds for the selection process -
1. A written aptitude test which tested the candidates on their numerical and verbal aptitude
2. The shortlisted candidates were then invited to a day-long session with some of the alumni who were Deutsche Bank employees. The short get-together ended up being an informal interview session as well.
3. Final round interviews on campus which included 2 rounds of interviews following which final offers were extended.

Interview Question – Since I was a newbie to finance as such with no prior courses or related internships, I found the question on Black Scholes very difficult. However, with a little prodding, I was able to solve it.   Answer Question
