Vice President
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in August 2007.

Interview Details – It was extremely fast. The recruiter was the intermediary for the most part so heard about the role from him, came in for the interview and was made the offer through him the next day.

Interview Question – I didn't find any of the questions difficult. The one that required the most thought was one on strategic plans I'd created in the past.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Did this through the recruiter. I was very clear with my expectations and they were met - so no further negotiation was necessary.

Vice President Interview

Vice President
London, England (UK)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in April 2011.

Interview Details – I have been approached directly by my future team member. It was followed by a single digit number of interviews with senior members of the division I was to work in, including key operation officer responsible for resources. Very welcoming and easy going conversations, certainly not the grilling session type. The process however took 2 months longer than initially expected.

Interview Question – There were no surprises in the interview phase.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – As always, read the fine print and find ways for them to guarantee the responsibilities you will be given.

Vice President

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in March 2010.

Interview Details – No pre-screening on phone and directly invited for an in-person interview.
First interview with hiring manager and his superior. I was supposed to meet with other colleagues but they were busy so resheduled other time.
Second visit was scheduled to meet with the two colleagues, but ended up meeting with only one of the interviewers.
Third visit was scheduled to meet with a colleague who was very confused about the interview, but still very polite.
Overall all of the interviewers gave me a challenging interview and were straightforward and forthcoming about their concerrns which I appreciated much.
Got an offer in the end.
