    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at BTG Pactual.

    Interview

    The interview process usually comprise talking to a range of 8-10 employees from the firm.
    During my interviews, I haven't been asked any tough questions. The questions were mainly regarding behavioral aspects and technical knowledge required to daily routines for the vacant job title.
    Customarily, the bank recruits new employees to start within back-office functions, and candidates are asked whether they would like to apply for a front-office job title in the future. This might be the only dubious question.
