*Do forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong section; I've lurked around in WSO plenty but only posted one topic before and that was almost 2 years ago.
Context: Internal transfer. I's Consumer Lending Group as an risk summer intern in California. I heard about the Financial Analyst Program (FAP) while still interning, talked to a recruiter who passed my resume to a VP in managaing the FAP. He gave me a phone interview and about a month later I got flown to Charlotte for an in-person .
As I write this post I had the interview literally 24 hours ago. I thought about waiting to post until knowing about offer results, but I figured the questions wouldn't be as fresh in my head by then. At any rate, the super day consisted of five 30-minute one-on-one rounds, with a 15 minute break between the second and third rounds.
It was roughly a 70-30 ratio of behavioral to technical questions. Very standard ("Tell me about a time when...") which I feel will be redundant to discuss.
VP in Commercial Real Estate
"Walk me through the three financial statements."
SVP in Commercial Banking
"Besides the three financial statements, what else would you look at in a company when considering lending to it?"
VP in Specialized Lending. He focused specifically on real estate capital markets, but this is separate from Commercial Real Estate. It turned out he's also the one who did the phone interview so this worked to my advantage.
"What recent economic news recently?"
VP in Corporate Banking
"If a company incurs $10 in depreciation, how would that affect the three financial statements?"
SVP in Wholesale Risk
Same question as 2nd, just worded differently.
Afterwards they handed me a preference form indicating which line of business within FAP (commercial banking, corporate banking, commercial real estate, specialized lending, and wholesale risk; there are other lines too but those five were the only ones available), as well as desired location. They told me they'll get back to me in 2 weeks or less.
I got the impression that because I was in a batch of internal transfer candidates, they purposely reduced the difficulty of the questions and try to extend offers to as many of us as possible. From what I heard there are currently 80-90 openings across the nation and they wanted to prioritize the internal transfer candidates first for those openings. In order of preference for the company: 1. Summer analysts within FAP; 2. Internal transfers from other departments; 3. OCR; 4. Everyone else
