I went through their S&T interviews and first round was mostly fit. A few technicals like what do you think of the market and what is DB stock trading at, but mostly it was shootin the sh!t with the guys about my life. But that was just my experience. 2nd rounds, however, i got kinda grilled...though I found that to be the standard format around most banks.

I had a superday with them yesterday, but their first round was ok. They asked me one accounting question and a brainteaser (the balls on a scale), but other than that the rest was fit.

Did you happen to interview at the NY office and was it for global banking? I have my superday next Thursday and was curious how I should prepare for it and what I should expect. I would appreciate any insight and I wish you the best of luck during this hectic time. Thanks.

Thanks grandpabuzz...will try to keep that in mind in case I get selected to interview in the next coming week.

It's crunch time for me.

To those who got interviews, do you go to a target?

No.

But they are recruiting on-campus, so I figured, why the hell not?

What are you doing to prep for your interview? Anything specific? Any good resources?

Let's see...reading my corporate finance textbook to get refreshed on the basics.

Reading the Vault and WSO interview guides (worth the $9, I must add).

Mostly, I'm just trying to study for my midterm on Saturday and relax so I can be coherent and put together during the interview.

Not one technical.

We just kind of sat there and chatted.

It was pretty cool.

And she said, "Thank you so much for being here!" about 3 or 4 times.

Is this SOP? Are they trained to be that effusive over somebody they're interviewing?

Whatever...I just hope I make it to round 2 in NYC.

Didn't get called back for Superday.

Good luck, though!

Hello,
I will be traveling to NY for the final round of interviews, is anyone going??

Feb 14, 2009

I am going. good luck!

Was this for NY? Core or noncore?

Feb 14, 2009

Hey, Jules. Yes it as NYC. I believe it was non-core but there were a few people from semi-targets/non-targets. Heard back?

Feb 14, 2009

Hey Sarah, thanks for the insight. I wasn't at the superday, but am curious to see if the office is still recruiting. Does anyone know if they're holding any more non-core superdays? Or any superdays, in that case...

This is their ibanking division. Expect a mix of technical and behavioral questions. I interviewed with them for a summer analyst position in the spring and got a semi-case question, but nothing difficult.

good luck!
