Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank (Boston, MA) in November 2016.

Interview

I had a first round phone screen without it being scheduled in advance - called me by surprise.
I attended the Superday a few weeks later, which was 5 round of interviews. One was a 2-on-1 with two analysts. Then an interview with an associate, then a VP, then an MD, then another analyst. Had 2 or 3 brain teasers and a couple hard technicals but mostly basic stuff.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank (New York, NY).

    Interview

    They were very friendly and helpful throughout the interview process. Compared to other banks I felt as if they were trying to get to know who I was which is why I ultimately turned down my offers to other banks.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank (New York, NY) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I networked with alumni at the firm to gain a first round interview, and they let me know how the interview was expected to go. The interviews ended up having many of the same questions my contacts expected.

    Interview was 2 days in the city. First day one interview with lower level analysts/associates, split between technical and fit. Second day two interviews with Directors and MDs mostly fit and behavioral.

    The first day was much more relaxed and personal in conversation than the second. The second round was more to hammer out exactly why I was interested in the firm and investment banking and how my background demonstrated that. The interviews differed substantially depending on the style of the interviewers and the questions often pertained specifically to my background.

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Deutsche Bank (New York, NY) in February 2011.

    Interview

    The night before the interview, I was invited to dinner in order to meet some of the people who would be interviewing me the following day. The meal was nice, but the people from the bank were very awkward. This was to be my first interview in my life, so this awkward dinner was not helpful to my mindset.

    In the interview, the first question I was asked by the interviewer was, "What questions do you have for me?" The rest of the interview was based on those initial questions. Even though I was applying for a summer analyst position (where compensation is set and pro-rated for the limited summer months that I would be spending at the firm), the interviewer asked me why I was not curious about compensation. I had been told by peers before the interview that to ask about compensation was considered taboo, so I was a bit surprised.

    I am a history major, and my resume reflected this fact, so I was not asked anything too technical, such as how to balance an income statement or value a company using Discounted Cash Flow analysis, or anything like that. Some other questions that I was asked:

    (1) "What do you think the largest problem facing the world economy is over the next 20 years and why? How about the US economy?"
    (2) "What is one type of product that you think will be obsolete in the near future?"
    (3) "If you own a start-up internet company and a larger company offered to buy you, what would your response be to that larger company?"

    Interview Questions

    • Why haven't you asked me about compensation yet?   1 Answer
    • What do you think the largest problem facing the world economy going forth over the next 20 years and why? How about the US economy?   1 Answer

    Interview

    Got the interview through a family connection. Went to New York for the interview, just a short behavioral. I think I did fine but was generally under-qualified for the position and did not blow anyone away.

    Applied online. Got invited to super day about a week after deadlines ended. 2 on 1 interview with two VPs, friendly atmosphere. Heavily technical, not only the basic technicals but the rationale and reasoning behind why things are down the way they are. Pressure test focused, got pushed right at the start.
