Fund Accountant Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Deutsche Bank
Interview Details 3 levels of interviews - first with HR on phone, then direct manager, then Director.
HR was more standard questions, manager asked more to the point questions, director just wanted to chat.
Interview Question – How do you set up an in-kind subscription in Mpower? Answer Question
Corporate Finance Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Deutsche Bank
Interview Details online application and specific questions about what makes you the best candidate, why choosing Deutsche Bank, and what do you want after, what do you expect.
One surprising thing is that the HR team there is very efficient, I get the phone call 3 days after the application.
Interview Question – not unexpected but a lot about why DB and what you can do Answer Question
Inhouse Consulting Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in July 2014.
Interview Details Application phase took a month.
I was invited to a 3 hour interview. 1,5h with a project manager and 1,5h with a senior consultant.
General questions about my CV, why I want to work for them, leadership experience and questions about their balance sheet.
2 case studies: one about their strategy the other was a post-merger one.
Interview Question – Discussion about their balance sheet Answer Question
Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Deutsche Bank.
Interview Details Depending on which position you are applying for, the skill-set requirement is different. In coverage, you need to be good at communication and relationship management. For trading, I think a good trader has an inherent trading acumen which is difficult to develop. You will know yourself if you have it, and with being aware about the markets in college, you will be able to clear interviews. If you have done a non-financial or non-economic degree,I would advise you to develope basic knowlege of finance, various securities, derivatives and basic concepts of economics.
Interview Question – I was asked a lot of puzzles most of which I was able to answer. I was not able to answer one puzzle but the interviewer didn't worry about it. Answer Question
Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in October 2010.
Interview Details Joined under graduate trainee programme. The process takes around 2 months ( Submitted application in September, interview in October, confirmation in November).
Did online reasoning test when applying the job. I was required to take only numerical reasonings back in 2008 but heard that the subsequent years candidates were required to take verbal reasonings too.
Called up by HR for interview 2 weeks later.
Went through 2 sessions yet 4 rounds of interview. The first session was interviewed by two team managers (VP level). Two weeks later, the second session was interviewed by three D level managers, 3 rounds back-to-back (30min each). Had on-site numerical paper test (1 hour) after the back-to-back interview.
Interview Question – "Tell me how do you judge a situation?" Answer Question
Senior Analyst Within the Quant Institute Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in July 2014.
Interview Details I was initially contacted by a recruiter with the "Agentur für Arbeit-Berlin" who works closely with the hiring committee at the Quant Institute. I submitted my application online. I was contacted within a week to hold a telephone interview. The original email invitation was for a phone interview within 5 weeks. But they had made a mistake with the month, and actually wanted to conduct the interview within 1 week. The correction was only made 1.5 days before the scheduled phone interview. If the phone interview had gone well, I would have been invited for their following "recruitment day" which would have involved a test about mathematics (including stochastics), finance and programming in C++. This is what I would consider a classical quant hiring process.
Tech Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Deutsche Bank.
Interview Details Good interview and review process 3 rounds of interivew. THen only HR will do the further interview. Lot of questions from HR about the career and attitude, and then only it will be approved.
Interview Question – nothing much Answer Question
Negotiation Details – no negotiation
Vice President Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Deutsche Bank in July 2014.
Interview Details 1 on 1 phone then in person with follow up. Calls and emails and texts exchanged. Professional with high expectations and very transparent. Want to see credibility. Hiring manager was very sincere and held high expectations for success. Ability to produce is a must and entrepreneurial background is respected.
Corporate Banking and Securities: Markets Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and interviewed at Deutsche Bank.
Interview Details Online application process was fairly long. Ended up getting a call for a face-to-face interview before completion of online testing, although still had to complete it later. Called up to join the Asia team, 2 interviews of 30 mins each.
Interview Question – Biggest risk you have ever taken? Answer Question
Private Equity Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Deutsche Bank
Interview Details The office is in Cologne. Interview questions are mostly technical questions, such as what's the difference between venture capital and LBO, what is the time value of money. And the interviewer also showed me several slides and asked me how and where could these slides be improved. Then he showed me three investment strategies with their initial investing money and their returns. You have to tell him which strategy is the best and why.
