    Summer Analyst Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lloyds Banking Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process was seamless from start to finish. First round was a one on one interview through campus recruitment - completely behavioral. A few days later I found out I got the super day, which consisted of 3 rounds of interviews (first 2 rounds were 1 on 1 interviews, the last was a 2 on 1). Mostly behavioral, but you absolutely MUST be able to discuss the bond/equity markets and show you have a strong understanding of what's happening in the news/how current events affect the economy.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Lloyds Banking Group (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Well there was a posting on my schools website about a "women in banking" I applied to that. I had a phone screening asking me about myself and why I was interested in finance. After the event itself, I had two more phone interviews that went well. Then I was invited to their superday at their office in NY and I got the offer the next day!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Lloyds Banking Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Attended on-campus recruitment, then invited for 2 hours of office interviews, 30 mins each. Average Interview based on cultural fitness. You can most likely tell if you fit into the work environment by the end of the interview day. As pointed out by one of the interviewers, it's a bureaucratic environment.

    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Lloyds Banking Group.

    Interview

    You interview with HR first, followed by a phone interview, followed by in person interviews and a final interview with the MD of the respective group.
    A lot of candidates will be invited in to interview even though it is clear they will not get the job. Managers will usually recommend friends or acquaintances for jobs and know who they want to hire before the process even begins but they still go through the HR process so they can not be accused of nepotism.
    If you are interviewing for a position below Vice President, be ready to speak to the financial statements and how they work together.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The Managing Director has final say in the ultimate outcome, but the hiring manager is key and should lobby on your behalf. If you can't enlist the hiring manager, there will be no negotiation.

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Lloyds Banking Group (New York, NY) in December 2010.

    Interview

    It was a round of interviews at their office near Bryant Park. Over 3 hours met with 6 managers from various departments at Lloyds, half an hour each. All the interviews were resume cum behavioral interviews.

    There were about 50 applicants applying for 6 positions. Very competitive and they are just looking for a reason to send you packing.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Lloyds Banking Group (New York, NY) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I meet with the CFO and the Managing director on the first day. We all got along really well and I got positive feedback form the recruiter. The next day I met with what would be my dorect report. Even the recruirter warned me that she had no personality but I was still taken aback. She was diconnected and distant.

    THis was a bacward interviw. Usually the potential direct hire is the easy interview and the higher ups are more hardass.
