Operations Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Jacksonville, FL
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in December 2010.

Interview Details

The hiring process was pretty disorganized. I was contacted after creating a profile on Monster.com and asked to interview that same week. When I arrived, there was no one ready to speak with me and they grabbed a random low-level employee and asked him to interview me. He asked me to him about myself and then what my strengths were and that was it. I had more questions for him than he did for me. I was brought back for a second round of interviews in which I was supposed to have with two managers, but one was on a trip that week. So I had an interview with one and received a job offer after that.

    I applied online - interviewed at Deutsche Bank.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the campus online recruiting website and was contacted a couple of days later. The recruiter was nice and the screening interview was short with mainly behavioral questions, the only one I specifically remember was why finance. Went up to Jacksonville for an interview with 3 guys and I thought it went well but I didn't get the offer.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Initial contact was with recruiter. Wow him/ her and you are almost guaranteed an interview. Need a decent resume and experience too. Two round of interviews led by two managers of different divisions. 10-15 minute rounds. One asked technical questions such as PV/ FV, excel operations, Bloomberg Terminal, Reuters Stations, etc. The other asked DB detailed oriented questions. Operations, financials, etc. There was an informal financial test, about 5 questions as well.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    HR does not do a good job at communicating with the potential employees about the date and time of the interview. I was interviewed by three managers. The most difficult questions were about a Bloomberg function and some Excel functions and how swaps work.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    First I was emailed to schedule a phone interview. The human resources representative call right on time and the questions she asked were almost entirely in regards to my professional background. About a week later I was scheduled for an in-person interview at the Jacksonville campus. Multiple interviewers came in and out while I was speaking which appeared to be a sloppy distraction technique or at worst poor planning. As with the phone interview most of the questioning was focused on background, however there were some behavioral questions asked.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    They came on campus to interview for their operations positions and the interviews lasted about 30 minutes. They send over a VP from different divisions and its 1-1. They basically asked you about your experiences on your resume, asked why you wanted to work at DB, and what your goals were. Easy interview basically looking for fit. No technical questions.

    The position does not really offer the exposure I was looking to a traditional I-Bank environment. The ability to move up in the ranks through the back office is there but as far as making a vertical move it could pretty tough especially due to location and the caliber of work being conducted there. The pay is not to great either you are only required to work 40 hours and then anything extra is over time which you are compensated for. If you want to stay in Florida go down the street and get a job in PWM the pay will be better and the opportunities are greater.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication at campus presentation and resume drop with alumni in January 2009. Two weeks later received phone call from Human Resources to schedule a phone interview and on campus interview with senior employees. Phone interview was basic personality/fit interview (ie. describe a time you worked on a team, what motivates you, what weaknesses do you have). Lasted no more than 30 min. Both interviewers were very nice and made sure I knew what the position I was applying for entailed. The campus interview was a little more intense, but similar format. Interviewer asked questions pertaining to my resume first - focusing on work experience, then personality/fit questions. Feedback was positive. Reason for no hire - highly competitive year.

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of a phone interview and a face-to-face interview. The face-to-face interview seemed very impersonal. It seemed as if the managers did not really have the time to interview. They never smiled and seemed very tense. The questions were not too difficult, mostly behavioral, although they did ask for my understanding of the position I was applying for.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    The pay was too low and the hours seemed brutal compared to comparable firms.
