I've herd of individuals that had unpaid PWM and were paid "under the table" by the advisors they were working under. If this is the case, I would assume the FA your working for would have brought it to your attention.

Yea when i did an unpaid internship i got minor compensation at the end that was labeled 'beer money'

Depends on a case by case basis, I think most people will cough up because you will be there everyday for no pay.

Would you mind sharing the dollar amount?

I don't think a major investment bank is going to pay you "under the table."

I don't think a bb would do that, but could be wrong

They may find a way to disburse money to you, as mentioned above 'transportation costs' or some other such helpful bullshit. When I interned for free, the company wouldn't let non employees into the building, so they signed me up for minumum wage so I could get a security clearance. BBs have the money, so talk to them......

Otherwise, IMO, working a part time job only adds to your credibility later on as it demonstrates your work ethic.

getting paid under the table like a migrant worker, by one of the biggest banks in the world, would. be. fucking. awesome.

Seriously, if anyone pulls this one off, I wish they would post it. The only thing sweeter would be getting paid by the gov't under the table for work done here....
