Interviewed with many BBs and first rounds were usually fit. You'll get the occasional one asking for a stock pitch but that's usually for superdays.

All depends. First round is usually mostly about demonstrating knowledge about what's going on in the markets. You may get some basic bond math questions. Hardest I've heard of during first round for my BB was calculating implied forwards and the like.

Mine was fairly easy, very resume based, behavioral, with general market knowledge. Have an organic view of whats going on, that will help a ton. Also know index levels that day, as well as the company's stock price. Stock pitch is also important, and its such a layup.
