    CIB Consulting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.
