    Summer Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Applied for the summer, had 2 phone interviews and face to face final rounds. The phone interviews went great, they even told me I would be put through. Unfortunately, during one of the face-to-face the interviewer came in late and flustered, had a black look on the interviewer's face.

    Asked really tough questions that was purposely to throw you off guard and say the wrong answer and demoralizing you from the start.

    I would say the front part of the process was good and HR was great, but just by sheer luck of getting a unhappy interviewer who probably had a bad day, you get rejected.
