    Interview Details

    One screening phone interview and two panel interviews with senior people (7+ years work experience) in New York for the Hong Kong position. Technical and market based questions. Look very deep into resume. There was a translation test after the second panel interview........ Got the offer very soon and the HR is very nice to answer your questions.

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

    Interview Details

    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.

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

    Interview Details

    Had a meet and greet with interviewers the night before at a bar, then interviewed on campus the next day (after applying through my university recruiting website). 2 on 1 interview, mostly technical questions with a little bit of fit/behavioral. They really want to see your desire and ability to work in finance. Didnt get second round interview

    Got the interview through a family connection. Went to New York for the interview, just a short behavioral. I think I did fine but was generally under-qualified for the position and did not blow anyone away.

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Deutsche Bank in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The night before the interview, I was invited to dinner in order to meet some of the people who would be interviewing me the following day. The meal was nice, but the people from the bank were very awkward. This was to be my first interview in my life, so this awkward dinner was not helpful to my mindset.

    In the interview, the first question I was asked by the interviewer was, "What questions do you have for me?" The rest of the interview was based on those initial questions. Even though I was applying for a summer analyst position (where compensation is set and pro-rated for the limited summer months that I would be spending at the firm), the interviewer asked me why I was not curious about compensation. I had been told by peers before the interview that to ask about compensation was considered taboo, so I was a bit surprised.

    I am a history major, and my resume reflected this fact, so I was not asked anything too technical, such as how to balance an income statement or value a company using Discounted Cash Flow analysis, or anything like that. Some other questions that I was asked:

    (1) "What do you think the largest problem facing the world economy is over the next 20 years and why? How about the US economy?"
    (2) "What is one type of product that you think will be obsolete in the near future?"
    (3) "If you own a start-up internet company and a larger company offered to buy you, what would your response be to that larger company?"

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Deutsche Bank in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I networked with alumni at the firm to gain a first round interview, and they let me know how the interview was expected to go. The interviews ended up having many of the same questions my contacts expected.

    Interview was 2 days in the city. First day one interview with lower level analysts/associates, split between technical and fit. Second day two interviews with Directors and MDs mostly fit and behavioral.

    The first day was much more relaxed and personal in conversation than the second. The second round was more to hammer out exactly why I was interested in the firm and investment banking and how my background demonstrated that. The interviews differed substantially depending on the style of the interviewers and the questions often pertained specifically to my background.

    Send my CV through a job board, got contacted a week later by a recruiter and was invited to an hour long interview with an Associate. Got asked fit questions in the beginning, like what's banking, am I ready to work hard, followed by technical questions, like what happens to cash when account receivables go up by $10.
