    Operations Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was pretty disorganized. I was contacted after creating a profile on Monster.com and asked to interview that same week. When I arrived, there was no one ready to speak with me and they grabbed a random low-level employee and asked him to interview me. He asked me to him about myself and then what my strengths were and that was it. I had more questions for him than he did for me. I was brought back for a second round of interviews in which I was supposed to have with two managers, but one was on a trip that week. So I had an interview with one and received a job offer after that.

    Markets and Corporate Finance Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    First a shortlist was made based on the resume of the candidates who applied for the post. They mostly shortlisted people with good academics or very good Position of Responsibilities. Then a PPT was held in our campus. In the interviews it seemed like even within the shortlist they had shortlisted some candidates and sidelined other candidates as was visible during the process as some of us had been called in the end and our interviews lasted only 3-4 minutes.

    Interview Details

    Went through consultant at Pune.Process took almost 2 months. Cleared one technical and HR round. But there is no further communication from last one month. HR seems very lethargic. Communication should be fast otherwise people won't prefer. They have many choices.

    The process took 1 week - interviewed at Deutsche Bank.

    Interview Details

    Laid back interview. Nothing out of the ordinary just behavioral questions. I interviewed with three VP's and they were all very friendly, answered all my questions, and spoke very highly of the company, which I could tell since all three have been there for years. Only thing is you must take an excel quiz and answer finance questions before/after the interview.

    online application and specific questions about what makes you the best candidate, why choosing Deutsche Bank, and what do you want after, what do you expect.

    Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Joined under graduate trainee programme. The process takes around 2 months ( Submitted application in September, interview in October, confirmation in November).

    Did online reasoning test when applying the job. I was required to take only numerical reasonings back in 2008 but heard that the subsequent years candidates were required to take verbal reasonings too.

    Called up by HR for interview 2 weeks later.

    Went through 2 sessions yet 4 rounds of interview. The first session was interviewed by two team managers (VP level). Two weeks later, the second session was interviewed by three D level managers, 3 rounds back-to-back (30min each). Had on-site numerical paper test (1 hour) after the back-to-back interview.

    Interview Details

    Depending on which position you are applying for, the skill-set requirement is different. In coverage, you need to be good at communication and relationship management. For trading, I think a good trader has an inherent trading acumen which is difficult to develop. You will know yourself if you have it, and with being aware about the markets in college, you will be able to clear interviews. If you have done a non-financial or non-economic degree,I would advise you to develope basic knowlege of finance, various securities, derivatives and basic concepts of economics.

    Senior Analyst Within the Quant Institute Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Berlin (Germany)
    Anonymous Employee in Berlin (Germany)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter with the "Agentur für Arbeit-Berlin" who works closely with the hiring committee at the Quant Institute. I submitted my application online. I was contacted within a week to hold a telephone interview. The original email invitation was for a phone interview within 5 weeks. But they had made a mistake with the month, and actually wanted to conduct the interview within 1 week. The correction was only made 1.5 days before the scheduled phone interview. If the phone interview had gone well, I would have been invited for their following "recruitment day" which would have involved a test about mathematics (including stochastics), finance and programming in C++. This is what I would consider a classical quant hiring process.
