    M&A Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Société Générale (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I met with 4 people and the interview was 1.5 hours long. Almost all technical questions bar 'tell me about yourself', zero interest in motivations or FIT. My interviewers were unfriendly and patronising. While this was an internship position...they expected you to come in with the experience of an analyst. If you're an excellent modeller but extremely rude and arrogant then SG is an excellent fit for you. If you're a human being with feelings...search elsewhere!

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Société Générale in April 2017.

    Interview

    First round was online test. Then they called for second round itpl Bangalore. There were 50-100 people in queue. I reached around 10 am. Got chance for interview round around 12.30 waited for 2.30 hour ? No proper management. They don't provide food or refreshments. Interview was good. Got selected for next round. For food we paid some amount. Waited for again 1.30 hour. Final round was OK OK . they asked us to leave.
    Worst thing about this company is, they don't provide parking facilities. You have to use pay parking which will charge you 15 RS per hour. Because of worst management I already spent 6 hours so I paid 90 RS for parking . it seems its way of earning from interview
