    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    A 15-20 minute phone interview, followed by another phone screen a week later. Called and asked me about some java data structure efficiency (ArrayLists vs LinkedLists), and a bit on shared memory and concurrency. The requirement for the position was 1 year of java, however the concurrency questions they asked were atypical of that level unless the person solely developed concurrent applications.

    Vice President - Technology Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jersey City, NJ
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank (Jersey City, NJ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Scheduled by external recruiter for meeting with two internal directors for 3PM, and was given instructions to their office and the person to contact. Arrived on time. Security tried contacting her and got voice-mail for 45 minutes, could not find anyone else. Meanwhile, after 45 minutes, the contact returned the call stating she was working at home and never bothered to check voicemail. Was sent immediately to meet with one of the directors. Explained what happened, and the director found the situation hard to believe -- I don't know why I'd just sit for 45 minutes in a lobby with inept security and her employee that doesn't check messages. Was then interviewed with questions for the wrong position, which I learned when the one director asked why I'm seeking a contract role (this role was full-time). After setting that person straight and ensuring understanding of why I was there, the director struggled with the remainder of the interview. Then, they could not locate the other director since I was to have met with him whilst I was waiting in the lobby; he had gone to another meeting. After waiting in his office for 15 minutes, they sent a person who I would describe as subordinate to the role to speak with me, and that individual had no interview experience (person had over 15 yrs experience with DB). I'd decided by this time that I wanted nothing to do with the role, much less the firm. The process was an unmitigated disaster. Rejected future interviews outright.

    Had a first round over the phone then was flown to NY for a super day. Almost entirely behavioural/resume based. Had a few very basic technicals (DCF, WACC, CAPM), but the focus was on fit. I was surprised by how much the challenged me on my resume, which was a good opportunity to explain what I had done. I learned after the interview that the 2 most important questions were "Why I-Banking" and "Why DB"
