    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Société Générale (New York, NY) in February 2011.

    Interview

    You can get the job when you're asleep. Easy questions with pre-defined answers. As long as you answer everything politically correct, you will get hired.

    Even for interviewing a technology post, you don't have to be technical at all. If you're interviewing for a business analyst spot, as long as you seem smart, you are hired! You don't need to know the business aweful a lot!

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    You can squeeze as much as you want from this company as it is losing people left and right.

    The first round interview was on campus and conducted by an employee who was a VP in the iT industry but I was interviewing for an accounting and finance position so I did not receive any technical questions at all. My second round interview, I had three rounds with three different MD's and a group interview with my competitors.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Société Générale (New York, NY) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed with them first on campus, which was pretty straightforward. Then went in for a half-day second round interview process. The second round consisted of three one-on-one interviews and a group interview. I was interviewing for a back office role, so people were professional, and weren't interested in intimidating you (unlike other i-banking positions).

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Société Générale (New York, NY) in November 2010.

    Interview

    The local (Americas) group head and the global head of the department spoke with me for an hour or so. I was referred to SG by people who knew me, so this was more casual than normal. I would say that the exact position was a bit vague, and they did not go into enough details to allow me to advocate for a particular position.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    None. Take it or leave it.

    I interviewed with all the people in that team.They didn't seem to have prepared a lot of interview questions. Just focus on resume, and some common tenichcal question. Honestly, I didn't expect them to hire me once I stepped in their office. Their working language seems to be French....
