    Global Market Summer Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BNP Paribas (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I am a graduate student. I got my first interview through university career center.
    The first round was a phone interview. They basically asked some behavioral and market based questions. Then I went to the 3 hour super-day interview. They have three people from different departments, some of them are more market based and some are more technical.
    However, it's weird that I didn't hear anything after the super-day interview. This might meant a decline, but I think at least they should tell me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BNP Paribas (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First round was 2 interviews, each had a small case. final round was 3 interviews, same format. The CIB consulting team runs its own HR, which made this the worst recruiting experience of my life. No responses to emails, terrible communication, wouldn't give feedback after decisions were made, interviewers showed up late and seemed to be angry from the beginning...definitely should use company HR going forward.
