    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Deutsche Bank CIB (Cary, NC) in May 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • 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.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Deutsche Bank CIB (New York, NY) in July 2010.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    Essentially it was "take it or leave it".

    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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Deutsche Bank CIB (Bangalore (India)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Phone Interview, 1:1 , HR interview and Director Interview,

    Overall very satisfied with the type of interview questions . One of the best interviews i ever had in my career.

    However HR is very slow on getting the offer and on more than two occasions offer letter had to be revised due to name correction.

    Interview

    Apply online in March 2013 and pass in-school selection, then go to regional office to attend video interview in one day.

    Interview Questions

    • 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

    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).
