    Interview

    4 rounds of interview, 2 with direct manager, 1 with business manager, and 1 with APAC sales head. Interview process is pretty informal. As a German bank, they are more interested in your personality and fit with the culture, people and bank. Interviewers seemed to have very specific requirements about people they hire and they are upfront with it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Commerzbank (London, England (UK)) in January 2019.

    Quite relaxed, but a long day. Online e-tray exercise, two interviews with a panel of three interviewers (mixture of bosses, HR and current grads employees), presentation on your recommendation of unseen choices and group debate. Only 5 other candidates, but you're split up into teams of two so the day is longer for some than others.
