My opinion on a specific Borrower of theirs that I had had experience with at my prior firm.

1 Answer

I gave my opinion and tried to give as much of an understanding of my technical skill set as possible but the interviewer never really gave me a response as to whether he agreed or disagreed.

What would you do if you have 1 million ping pong balls?

Most questions focused on my experience or Situational interview questions. I was asked a couple of odd questions, which I found difficult such as "tell us a joke". It is hard to tell a funny joke to 6 strangers that would not offend any of them.

After at least nine different phone and in-person discussions, I'm not sure that there was anything left undiscussed (other than compensation). They were quality questions from experienced bankers. Nothing was surprising or unexpected.

Tell me about an experience where you had to change a traditional process

Most difficult piece of all was not being asked any technical questions.

Please communicate how you would underwrite a deal through completion.

A lot of questions were targeted at finding out what the processes are at my current institution and how they compare to DB. They did not focus that much at whether I know how to do the job. They focused a lot on my current job, even though the one that I had prior to that for many years was much more relevant to the position. I think I got penalized for this as well as for the fact that I can still do the work which DB allocates to junior people (I always worked for institutions that are run lean, so work with little support, hence know how to do a lot of analytical things that mid- to senior people do not do at DB). On the other hand, it seems that at DB credit professionals do a lot of backoffice type of work, which are handled by a separate team at my current employer. Also, some of the questions are designed to be stressful, but really amused me. Such as "why have you been a VP for such a long time". I am older than most of the people that interviewed me and don't care about this crap anymore, but 10 years ago I did. Now I realize that I should have spent my energy on something else that matters in life, and am amused that other people still care.
