    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Allianz Global Investors (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Had 6 20 minute interviews with varying hiring managers from across all different departments. All were very friendly and seemed to have a clear idea of the intern's future work. I think they are just looking for a fit personality wise. No real technical questions other than do you know excel, powerpoint, etc. Have an idea of where your interests align with the managers departments and you will do fine.

    Interview Questions

    • None really. Sometimes answering questions for a department you are not interested in is awkward.   Answer Question

    AllianzGI Graduate Program Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Allianz Global Investors (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through the AllianzGI Graduate program website. AllianzGI has traditionally had just an investment management graduate track but this was the first year they offered a business development and a business operations track. Throughout the interview process, you can tell that the program wasn't as established or structured as previous graduate programs and HR was learning as they went along. In addition to the typical application, there was a 20 minute online test. Be sure to have scratch paper nearby. About 3 weeks later, I received an invitation to interview with HR. Typically, first round interviews are done by phone but the company required a 1 hour face to face interview. I was invited back to what HR referred to as an assessment center. This second round required that I complete a pre-work assignment about social media. At the interview, I met with about 12 other candidates. HR showed a presentation about working at the company and then divided us up into groups to work on a presentation exercise. The assessment center also involved an individual case where you read a case and write a recommendation email to a hypothetical manager. During lunch, I met with senior leaders who spoke about their roles and provided feedback on our presentations. The final round consisted of meeting with a senior executive at the firm for about an hour. HR indicated that I was going to get an offer but one never materialized. I felt the company was unprofessional considering the interviews completed in the beginning of May and I did not receive any response or feedback. I reached out to the HR partner on a few occasions but never received a firm answer. "We'll make a decision by next week." I stopped pursuing the role after two and a half months went by. I was really disappointed since the role sounded interesting. If processes take this long at the company, then I made the right decision.

    Overall, interviewing for the graduate program was a long and drawn out process that ended up being a waste of my time.
