    Summer Analyst: Global Markets Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Combination of your views on current market topics and heavy brainteasers, depending on interviewer. 3 back-to-back-to-back 2-on-1 interviews on campus followed by a 6-person Superday. If you show interest in their derivatives group, expect a much more quantitative interview. It is a French bank so they like candidates that have a more global (i.e. outside of US) focused perspective on the markets.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell about some topics you have been following in the markets? Follow up: What factors do you think are driving these topics? What's the square root of 1.4? Why are manholes round? Mental Math.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at BNP Paribas.

    Interview

    Interview process is lengthy and drawn out. Its difficult for the firm to make hiring and overall business decisions. Expect that you will need to meet many of the same people numerous times. In particular at the senior management level. Since almost all senior management is located in Paris, this will typically be via conference call or video chat
