    In-House Counsel Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank (London, England (UK)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    It was a 3-stage interview, all arranged via the recruitment agency. First stage with a senior member of the team (face to face), second stage with hiring manager (polycom), and third stage with HR (face to face). I'm used to long and drawn-out interview of banks, but they moved reasonably fast

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to leave your current employer? What interests you about this role? Why DB? What are your strengths and weaknesses? What sort of issues do you handle in your current role? How do you approach difficult situations? And so on. HR questions were a standard affair, nothing tricky.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They responded to negotiation, and gave a modest uplift to their initial offer.

    Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank.

    Interview

    Submitted online application including cover letter and motivation questions, then was invited to a first round interview at their office with two VP level employees. The interview seemed quite on the spot, asking questions about my CV and background, then more technical questions which surprised me. They also asked situational questions and questions that would test if you think the right way about risk and decision making.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank (Birmingham, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewing process was quick and efficiently managed by HR. They ensure that everyone feels comfortable and introduce the candidates to the current graduates and give information about the bank in general. Once the first stage of the interview has been completed which was 2 on 1 they respond very quickly within a few days. The final stage of the interview consisted of 3 rounds looking at the CV and finally they call back within 1-2 days (mine was in the afternoon the very same day) and give feedback to your performance.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank (Birmingham, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Friendly staff. They asked normal and expected questions, however with no past experience in the sector that worked against me. Did my own research on the department but the person who interviewed me went through all the structure and basic backgrounds before I could speak about it. That was a bit unexpected.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank in January 2015.

    Interview

    Initial stage is submitting an application form, which asks for answers to a number of motivational questions within rather small word limits. Therefore, focusing on quality answers is paramount for this stage. I submitted my application at the end of November and about two weeks later, I received an email inviting me to the online testing stage which I believe consisted of a Numerical test, which was Kenexa based. I have had a wealth of experience with Kenexa tests which I have no trouble with, however found this more challenging than average. It then took two weeks to hear back when I received an email during the latter half of December saying I had been selected for a first round interview in mid-January. The first round interview in January was simply a two-on-one interview with staff from the GTO division. Questions were straightforward, competency based and also some specific questions about the Bank were asked. Both interviewers were very good and made me feel relaxed. I wasn't asked anything that I didn't completely unexpect. I was told I would hear the outcome of the interview within a week, however I received an update on my application on the evening of the same day at around 9pm inviting me to the final round interview a week and a half later. Being so close to the end of the process, I prepared extensively for my final interviews. The final interview day consisted of three separate one-on-one interviews. I found all interviewers to be friendly and overall the interviews were a positive experience. Most questions were generic and repeated. Questions were competency based and tested what you know about the Bank, recent news and the GTO division itself. Nothing unexpected at all, no brain-teasers, and I felt like you were able to direct the conversation a little - it was more like a discussion where the interviewers were trying to get to know you. We were told that they will aim to let us know the outcome later the same day. I received a call back around 5pm notifying me of my offer, where I was provided with detailed feedback about my performance. The whole process took about two months from the moment I submitted my application in November, bearing in mind the festive period. The slowest part of the process was being invited to the online tests and hearing the outcome for those. However, the process sped up from the first round interviews onwards.

    Analyst Wealth and Asset Management Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank (Birmingham, England (UK)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Online application, and numerical tests followed by an onsite interview in Birmingham. Very slow to progress through each stage. I do not come from a financial degree subject and this made up a large part of there questions at the interview and they seemed concerned about it, I felt that if it was such a large concern they should have recognised it before the interview and not asked me to come onsite.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to write some code in the interview, since I have a technical degree even though it would not be a part of the role.   Answer Question
