    Analyst Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Renaissance Capital (New York, NY) in June 2010.

    Interview

    The online test and the Super day were fairly easy. Then was the interview with the MD thru Skype, questions were mostly on my academics and work experience. Everything went well, until MD learnt that I was on a maternity leave (and obviously had a kid), then questions turned into more personal space (what is my attitude to long work hours in IB? work-life balance expectations, time-management, etc.). They had shortlisted two candidates for the position, the other was a single male, at the end he got the job.
