I applied in-person and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in August 2013.
Interview Details – I first interviewed with Deutsche Bank at a computer science conference that included a career fair. The initial interview was pretty long and focused on behavioral questions. The person that interviewed me thought I'd be a perfect fit for their new support division, what she failed to tell me is that this position doesn't pay very well compared to a developer position. Pay was not based on experience nor background but rather on the position itself. I was flowed to Florida for a second interview, this time it was a group interview. It was also a behavioral interview and it was pretty straight forward. I was given an offer but I turned it down.
Interview Question – None of the questions were difficult or unexpected. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Low salary
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Deutsche Bank.
Interview Details – Applied through campus recruiting, got an email 2 weeks later. They set up a phone interview and never called at the time. The next day they sent an email to reschedule it, without ever apologizing. Once again they missed the phone interview and never followed up or apologized. Two weeks later they emailed asking again for a phone interview, which turned out to be for a totally different position. Despite this, they said it was a good interview and asked me to come in for an in person interview. They canceled the interview less than an hour before, never apologized, and never followed up. I had to email them to find out they filled the position. This has literally been the worst application and interview process I have ever gone through.
Interview Question – The whole thing was unexpected and horribly disorganized. Answer Question

Interview Details –
* Initial meeting was on campus as part of job fair. Some minor technical questions but mostly a get-to-know you. Was a bit intense just because of the small interview rooms and the number of people waiting, but fine.
* Second interview at DB's Wall St. office. Heard from non-NYC people that the second meeting with video-chat on campus and/or in-person meeting with rep off campus. Two interviewers - one was a technical lead, the other more management. Explain past projects, relevant work experience, what you bring to the table, etc. Obviously a professional interview, but not as intense as you'd expect.

Interview Details –
Interview was set up via a recruiter. I also know someone at DB who said this was a great role. First had a phone interview w/ HR staffer. Went well. Was then invited to the 60 Wall St office and met w/ the department and had 4 individual interviews on first visit. Was invited back for second/final round (on a Wed) and met w/ 3 more including the dept head who was working b/w NY & London. All the interviews went great. Everyone was very pleasant and upfront about what the role involved. On Thursday I get a call from my recruiter saying DB wants to hire me! Great news. Am I willing to do temp to perm? This was never brought up earlier (this was always a day 1 perm placement position). I agree to it but short term - i.e. 90 days. DB agrees. I am asked to come to the office on the following Tuesday (due to Monday presidents day holiday) for drug testing (at a site in NJ) and the orientation in the afternoon. I agree.
I show up on Tuesday promptly on time and everything stops. Security does not have my name on the list. After multiple phone calls, I can't reach any of the 7 people I met w/ last week including the HR rep. By 10 am I'm obviously worried that it will seem I'm so late to first day. I call the recruiter who says to sit tight (I'm still in the lobby!). He calls me back about 30 minutes later. DB has decided to "take a different direction" and not hire me.
They've decided they want all the administration staff on board as long term temps (i.e. endless). This plan is great for them as they never have to provide health benefits, or retirement plan. The recruiter is mortified by this change of events and I'm speechless (while I continue to stand in the lobby at 60 Wall)...
I was very disappointed and horrified at DB's treatment of any new hire. I was asked to join
and showed up. Only now you close the door? Very poor form.
In the long run the DB plan really was to hire very long term temps. Great workers who are on the hook to do a great job while on "probation" w/out health or retirement. Works out great for DB. Recruiter tells me later that DB has changed their process and now temp to perm candidates should expect to be temp for up to and beyond 2 years.
My inside source also confirmed this change - very long term temps as a cost saving method. I'm sorry things worked out this way, I felt like I could have really contributed in a very positive way to the group. However, as a professional adult I need health care and retirement options- I'm willing to wait and prove myself as an employee but not for 2 years. DB would never ask their professional bankers to do this, so why treat admin like second class employees.
I've never heard back from anyone at DB directly.
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected or difficult but many of the questions were process based. How would you proceed forward w/ project work based on X circumstances? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Only after offering the job did DB say - we'd like this role to be temp to perm... Changes things a bit as they wanted an endless (i.e. no benefits) temp on staff.
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in June 2013.
Interview Details – the overall process was ok - nothing unexpected - standard questions, both behavioral and technical. very few information was provided upfront in the job description and the hiring manager tried not to disclose responsibilities/expectations. it was not clear why they wanted to hire a well-educated and experienced person. generally, this company seeks only low-paid colledge grads - there is no appreciation for experience or education.
Interview Question – no difficult questions - all questions were predictable and straightforward. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – no negotiation - accept or decline
