Placement Day is coming up at. I am fortunate enough to be joining one of those for the summer and a friend of mine if joining the other. (We're SA's).
We have been networking and what not with the bank but neither of us has wanted to be overly frank and ask things about placement day like "how long will I be interviewed by your Group specifically and how hard is it?".
Does anyone know SPECIFICALLY the process of placement day at either of these two firms? I can't find a legitimate walk through of what this is like anywhere. I.e. timing, content, atmosphere, etc., additional specific concerns are below if this wasn't clear enough.
- MOST IMPORTANT due to travel plans: Is it really the entire day? In the email it said 9 am - 5 pm. Although, it said the same for the original interview which was 1.5 hours consisting of three 30 minute interviews. (Also find it hard to believe bankers would want to spend a whole day with us).
- How long do you meet with each Group? Or does it vary? Apparently, I am meeting with 3 Groups. How long could I possibly be in an interview for if I have to go visit two other floors? (Would like to mentally prepare the possibility of a marathon if that is the case lol).
- Have you guys about placement day at either of these banks? I.e. a paper or an excel test or something of that nature? (I know, I know, a paper lbo isn't overly hard, but if I am supposedly meeting with two other Groups that would come off as pretty strange and is something I'd rather not unnecessarily expend time into unless I have to).
Really appreciate any and all advice thank you in advance for any help!
P.S. (Secondary question) - Really appreciate general process information and tidbits. However, if anyone knows anything about a few of the "competetive" Groups and what goes on in their interviews, it would be much appreciated. Also, I have heard most of the Groups are good at these two banks, any to AVOID? Any Groups at either bank overly sweaty or downright ridiculous?
