    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Société Générale (New York, NY).

    Interview

    one on one with the hiring manager with a written test. After the first round you meet with the hiring manager's boss and then the CIO. If you get to this stage then all is pretty much set. The recruiter negotiated the salary.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Société Générale (Dallas, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    This was a typical structure with assessments, two rounds of specific interviews, and one on - the- job work day. We looked at credit scores on customers and discussed how we would approach the underwriting process for each situation along with the likelihood of problems in the process of collecting.

    Interview

    There were 3 rounds of interview, each about two - three weeks apart. Each round was 2 interviews in-person at their office. Some of the questions were behavioral, some were technical. Interviews were with NY and Paris team members. Negotiating process was with HR. Overall, pretty straight forward and not too difficult.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Société Générale (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    very technical with silly questions and the people who interviewed me seemed out of touch with client coverage and market conventions. They were also all guys, mostly French, maybe because I am female, who knows. I was on the trading floor then went to what they called GLFI, whatever that means, on a higher floor.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Société Générale in April 2015.

    Interview

    The begging of the interview was very professional and very well coordinated. I had two rounds and all meetings were scheduled within a week. I had multiple interactions with HR and it seemed like I had an offer coming in very shortly. Then, I haven't heard from SG for over a month. I decided to follow up and was told that I did not get a job.

    Summer Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Société Générale (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Prior to your interview you rank what areas you would like to work in. The choices are Investment/Corporate banking, Markets, or Operations. It's not guaranteed that you'll get an interview with someone in the area you listed first. Then there is a preliminary phone or in-person one on one interview followed by a Superday at their office. During the Superday you'll interview with two or three people from different teams. All of them can want to hire you so I recommend not accepting the first person who calls right away if there was another area you'd rather work. The process is a bit disorganized.

    Interview Questions

    • Your typical behavior questions and a few technicals. Not very challenging compared to bulge brackets.   Answer Question
