    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Deutsche Bank.

    Interview

    Initial communication was through email, the entire internship process took a week since the day I was contacted. Had two interviews total. The interview time was sort of bad; it was during finals. However, they were flexible and instead of an in person interview, I opted for a phone interview instead. People were very friendly and it was an educational experience.

    Submitted resume through school career website. Got a phone call about a week later for an onsite interview at DB's headquarter. The interview took about 30 minutes. Basically just went over the resume in details and lots of behavioral questions. There might be some technical questions if you have a tech background.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Deutsche Bank.

    Interview

    Went to two interviews. The first was more technical questions and questions about prior experiences on my resume- There were a few problem solving questions as well. The second interview was more about my experience in work related situations: lots of questions like, "Tell me about a time when you had a conflict with a superior" or "Tell me about a time when you worked with a team and someone did not fully participate."

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Deutsche Bank in December 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted application via University Job Posting. 1st rounds are two 30 minute interviews that were purely technical. Some questions seemed as though they were a test of how you did under pressure, as opposed to actual finance knowledge, but it doesn't hurt to actually know all of the answers.

    Called back for superday in office. 5 interviews, 20 minutes each. Everyone was extremely friendly and seemed genuinely interested in getting to know you personally. Easily the most enjoyable superday process I had gone through. First round was much more technical than the superday.

    Research Analyst, Global Markets Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Deutsche Bank (New York, NY) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and after what seemed quite a while, got an email from the recruiting team asking if I was interested for the position.
    After I replied with a yes, I got a phone call the following day where they talked about the position and what they were looking for and asked me to talk about myself. Very basic phone call.
    Next, they invited me for the super day while on call and sent me an email with the formalities and information. The interview was for 1.5 hours with 30 mins of back-to-back interviewing with the people from the team. This was scheduled for one week after the phone call.

    The interview was in NY at their Wall St office. My time slot had two other students with me who'd flown in from different cities.
    The first interview was casual. I was asked to talk about myself and stuff listed on the resume. There were a few behavioral questions. And that's about it. In short, there was nothing that stood out. Very general.
    The second interview was again related to my resume. Nothing behavioral. I was asked questions about my views on the market and my courses in school.
    The third interview was again market and project related. I was asked questions about my project in much detail though, not just the overview.

    The interviewers were friendly sure, but they seemed distracted. I would've said that it was maybe my fault, and it surely could've been, but the way they started talking from the go itself felt as if they were doing it for formality sake, I guess. It wasn't a bad experience, but it wasn't what I expected it to be either.
    Also, I read a lot of interview reviews for DB here, but this wasn't like them. These interviewers weren't there for the behavioral skills and confidence. They wanted someone who was really good with markets, and more.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Deutsche Bank in December 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through the college career services website. Received an email two weeks before the interview. The challenge was that the interview took place during the finals week. Overall, positive experience from the interview. Was asked only behavioral questions, no technical / market / analytical questions. The only downside was that they said they would call later the same day to inform about your status in both cases (selected / not selected), and they never called.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing unexpected or very difficult. Behavioral questions: tell me about time you had to work in a team.   Answer Question
