    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Deutsche Bank (Cary, NC).

    Interview

    I applied to DB through my university's career website. I had never spoken with a recruiter or employee of DB beforehand but was offered an interview. The first round interview consisted of standard behavioral questions (name a time you had to lead a group) technical questions relevant to the job (what are the 3 types of joins - didn't know that one) and brain teasers.

    Called back within the week, the second round was effectively the same thing with a slightly heavier technical component. I was asked to write an SQL query but nothing more. More brain-teasers in this one as well. Both of these interviews were with two managers each. Took 3 weeks to recieve a callback from that. (Note, this location was growing and was in all-hand-on-deck hiring mode)

    Interview Questions

    • Name the 3 types of SQL joins and the differences between them.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Did not attempt negotiation as an intern - good offer the first time.

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview involved 3 separate one-on-one interviews for 30 minutes each. Most of the questions were focused on the resume. There were no technical or behavioral questions. The seriousness of each interviewer increased as the day progressed. The first one was laid-back and nice, while the other two were very serious.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked the reasoning behind decisions/ events on the resume. Not too difficult.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Deutsche Bank in November 2014.

    Interview

    They recruited from my university via a resume drop. Two people from the Compliance group came to campus to interview students for the whole day. Within a day I was invited to the second round interview on location, where I met two others in a conference room. Within one day of notification, I was expected to be on location. It was hard to do this with such short notice.

    The interview itself was chaotic, to say the least. They claim to want candidates from varying background but they only want law students. The interview lasted 20 minutes and they did not give a tour. It was hard to justify driving 8 hours for it.

    I was told that I would get a reply within a week. Now, 4 weeks later and no reply - even after sending a thank you note a day after the interview and a follow-up two weeks later. It's as if I dreamt up this interview with the level of radio silence that I am being subjected to.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Deutsche Bank (Jacksonville, FL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I had the interview set up by a DB recruiter. The interview itself was very easy going. They really just wanted to see if I would be a good fit for the team and of course asked about my prior work experience and what I did on a daily basis. I got an email first thing the next day saying that things looked favorable along with pre-employment paperwork. I received the official offer letter three months later, then an additional two weeks for background check before they confirmed a start date.
