    Graduate Program Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Davy (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Seemed like a fairly straight forward interview. Mostly competency based with a couple of technical questions on markets et cetera. Single interviewer, she was friendly. Thought it went well but got an email saying I wasn't progressing to the second round even though everything I was asked I had prepared. No explanation or feedback as to why which was rather disappointing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Davy (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Horrible interview. They presented the company to eight of us applying for the job which was fine but the whole experience was disappointing. The Woman from HR wasn't even interested in my answers. Over all the questions were fine but her attitude towards me from the very start was off-putting. It was just a tick the boxes interview with know real interest from her.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Davy.

    Interview

    The process generally takes too long, with a limited amount of feedback or updates in between. The company would be better served putting more emphasis on post-interview feedback and updates as the process can drag out.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Davy (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Got through to the second round where you had to present a stock for medium to long term investment to 3 portfolio managers and a HR representative.
    Quite daunting process and the PMs were hostile to the idea.
