Analyst Interview

Analyst

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

Associate
Singapore (Singapore)

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

Senior Analyst Within the Quant Institute
Berlin (Germany)

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.

Private Equity Interview

Private Equity

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.
