Vice President - Technology Interview

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

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank (New York, NY).

Interview

The interview was panel style. I was asked very detailed questions about specific technologies. As a database modeler, they threw all sorts of scenarios at me. The bottom line here is that if they are looking for technical expertise, then you better have deep knowledge and experience.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

There was no room for negotiation. The offer was take it or leave it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank (Jersey City, NJ) in February 2009.

    Interview

    A friend of mine referred my resume to the Bank Recruiter for a Senior IT Project Manager position and coincidentally, there was an open position in the firm. Within a week, the recruiter called me and I had a 20-minute phone interview with her. She then set up a 1-on-1 in-person interview with the Hiring Manager. The hiring process was very well organized by the recruiter. One of the things I would say to folks looking for a job, especially in this tough condition, is not to be lax. Prepare well ahead of time even for a telephone conversation with a recruiter. This recruiter asked probing questions about salary, bonus, experience, position-specific skills, fit for the organization, etc. Be prepared with appropriate answers to the possible questions the recruiter might ask. Don't underestimate the knowledge and skills of the recruiter. Only if he or she feels that you have the qualifications for the open position, then he/she would take the next step and setup an interview with the hiring manager.

    When I interviewed with the hiring manager, she was really ready and thorough in her preparations. She had all the questions prepared. Also, I am not sure about other people. This interviewer (hiring lady) was fairly good looking and came to the interview with body parts shown and it was extremely difficult for me to focus on the interview and keep my eyes focused on her face. I regrouped in 10 seconds and everything was OK from that point onwards. Something to think about before getting into a 1-on-1 with somebody for an interview when you desperately need THAT job.

    Be prepared to follow all the basic rules of the interview. Shake hands well, prepare your introductory hello, walking behind the interviewer, opening the door for him/her, sit on the chair when he or she says so, etc. Say hello to the receptionist and follow all the etiquettes rigorously. Since this was an IT department, people were dressed casually and overall, everyone I met was very good.

    In the interview, the hiring lady threw a curve ball and details in the next section.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank (Pune (India)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    It was an interview drive in Pune. I reached early morning, right on time as per the slot given to me, only to find out many others with 14-18 years of experience already waiting for their first round. The HR didn't bother to ask coffee or water, and when enquired how long it would take to get my first round, they kept on saying "just wait". That "just" wait went on for 5 hours, and finally I got my 15 minute screening round on VC with some guy sitting in Bangalore. Would you believe it? Extremely mismanaged. There were around 50 candidates for VP, and 60% didn't even know if they were the right fit for the job. Some had program management background, Some had product management with no development experience, while some others had technical management background. When probed further, I found out that these are common scenes during their drives.
