    Capital Markets Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Berenberg Bank.

    Interview

    Extremely unprofessional. Scheduled a middle round interview through their online portal as directed and was not called during the time slot I had chosen almost two weeks prior. After about 15 minutes of waiting I called their office, where I was told to wait up to an hour after the scheduled interview for them to call me. Proceeded to wait this amount of time and got nothing in return. Called them again and was told to email them to set up another time. Took them almost two days to email me back with simply telling me to select a new time on their online portal. Online portal has no new times available, so I contacted them through email yet again. This time I was told to just check the portal every day in case something opens up. I have no idea how this company functions with such an incompetence.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Berenberg Bank (Telephone, TX (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    I applied for the Global Graduate Programme. After completing the tests and submitting my CV I was invited for telephone interview, which I had to book for over a month away. It went OK I though all the questions are pretty predictable.

    I had multiple phone interviews. They consisted of technical and behavioural questions. The interviewer was friendly. Assessed basic finance and accounting knowledge. The process went relatively fast. The calls lasted no longer than 30 minutes each.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Berenberg Bank in January 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online and got through to the phone interview round. The interviewer was incredibly disinterested and was 45 minutes late calling me. It was clear that she had a set of questions to ask, there was no dialogue just question-answer. Disappointed.

    Easy Interview

    I would rate this experience as negative. Firstly, they call me late. Questions were pretty easy but the guy was uninterested and bored, I really had the impression to talk to a robot.
