Very Easy Interview
DCM Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA) in May 2011.
Interview Details – 2 separate days with a panel of 3 interviewers each. Questions were on my background and experience, but nothing technical.
The panel spent more time explaining the team structure and team focus than on asking me questions, so it felt more like a personality check.
I would recommend potential interviewees to act confidently and know your experience/background. Due to the (as of May 2012) limited product suite, technical questions probably won't come up.
Interview Question – What deals have you worked on? View Answer
Negotiation Details – The recruiter did the negotiation.
They made a good offer of 70k, and even upped it to 80k when I asked for some time to think about it.
