How do Return Offers work

Curious how return offers work at the end of the summer, can one analyst keep you out? Or is it more like if most people want you in youre good??

The HR business partner leading the program will collect feedback from a panel and also look into the profile of the candidates. Also, not everyone might be available - there could be issues with work permits, location, negative feedback from the candidates themselves, or similar.
They have a list with potential offers and will then consider making these in line with overall hiring expectations, budget/headcount.

more or less, if u did good so far and made good relationships, hr will probs tell u that ur on track and not give too much (if any) feedback, and u will probs get a return as long as u dont fuck up the second half lol 

btw if they tell u to be less 'transactional' during ur sa (which was somewhat common feedback according to friends), it means be less socially inept and a hardo lool some kids need to chill sometimes and just shoot the shits with the analysts (harder if its online but at least try lol)

Not true in my opinion. Saw a couple of times during my internships (and with friends) that people did not get an offer after very solid mid-term feedback and the other way round. At many banks your development curve after the mid-term counts a lot...
