    The interview process took two months, it consisted of a group HR interview on a behavioural case, followed by an AC with business managers and individual interview and ended with a video conference with global CEO and function head. Overall the experience was very positive, nice interviewers and no unexpected questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    7 interviews, 20 minutes each, held on the same day. Directors and MDs from various business functions interviewed me. The posting was generic, and the interviewers gather after all interviews and select which candidates they would like for their specific departments. The idea is to have an adaptable personality because you can get shut down by the majority even if one interviewer likes you

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Allianz Global Investors (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through my online career center. They called me to schedule a super day. I went into the office and had 7 back-to-back 15 minute interviews. They were all with managing directors from across the firm. Most of the questions were behavioral, mainly seeing if you could fit into the culture. Only one of the 7 interviews was technical. Allianz really values culture, so a lot of the questions were about what I wanted out of the internship experience and the directors spent a lot of time explaining the culture.

    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
