    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Mizuho Bank (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Very formal, did a phone interview. I received a phone call later after the phone interview to schedule a panel interview for next day. Gentleman on the phone was very nice and worked with you when you were trying to get to an answer in order to understand your thought process. Questions were tricky and required quick thinking as well as knowledge of various subjects related to human resources and business.

    Three interviews in one day. Two of them very pleasant. The other person close to rude and obnoxious. Place didn't look neat for being at that prime location. All were in a rush and pressed by time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mizuho Bank (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I had a 1:1 interview process then proceeded to the next round where I met with 5 other employees in the HR team. Interview process was generally easy with basic behavioral questions but what threw me off was the the end of the interviewing process. They never contacted me regarding the decision or me being accepted or rejected, which I felt was a bit unprofessional.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mizuho Bank (New York, NY) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through the University and had a phone call within a week with two interviewers. Questions from first interviewer were what do you know about Mizuho Bank? Second interviewer asked all technical questions about the three main valuation methodologies and how I would go about analyzing a firm from a credit perspective. Heard back the following day that I earned a superday. Mizuho will only pay for your flight and not cover your travel expenses to and from the airport. During the superday, had seven interviews. Nearly all technical questions and mainly Q&A for the interviewee. Also, was asked why corporate banking? Importance of free cash-flow from a credit perspective? Asked about solvency and liquidity ratios. And of course tell me about yourself?

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to do Investment Banking? (Odd since it is a corporate banking position)   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mizuho Bank.

    Interview

    I had only one interview. It was not difficult, and they did not ask any tricky questions. They basically wanted to hear about my experience and whether I thought I could handle the responsibilities of the job. They asked specific questions about my background and experience, but nothing crazy.

    Interview Questions

    • The only unexpected thing was that they asked for a sample of my work.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The HR person, who is no longer at Mizuho, gave me to understand that the small guaranteed bonus would be in addition to whatever else I could add to it throu the good work I was expected to do. This turned out to have no basis in fact. But, as I say, that recruiter is no longer with Mizuho, and I don't believe such experience will recur.
