    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at d-fine (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    3 interviews, each around an hour. One interview about d-fine, one interview with technical questions, one interview about your CV and experiences, typically with a partner. Overall turnaround is pleasantly quick. All interviews are likely be back to back, depending on availability of interviewers. No feedback given if you do not get the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • With regards to the technical interview this really depends on the interviewer. It might be some brain teasers, but is very likely something which is on your CV and which the interviewer is also good in. So, expect to be asked some tricky questions about something skill on your CV.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at d-fine.

    Interview

    The interview was about 3 hours long in total. I had 3 seperate interviews each lasting about an hour. Mostly they were interested in my background. They asked a few general questions regarding corporate finance as well as a few maths brain teaser question which were pretty difficult. Overall it was an ok experience but some preparation is recommended before the interview. Having a good knowledge of corporate finance and balance sheets will certainly help. Also books like joshi which prepare you for quant interviews can help with the brain teasers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at d-fine (Frankfurt am Main (Germany)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is split into three parts, where each part has a separate interview partner.
    Part 1: Soft interview about stations in your CV and motivation. Surprisingly my interview partner didn't know my name and took me for someone else. I thought he was making a joke when he asked whether I studied finance in mannheim. Quite to the opposite I studied pure mathematics in Heidelberg.
    Second interview is of pure technical nature. I had the impression that my interview partner only accepted answers he would have given himself.
    The last interview was a partner interview about career.
