Round 1

Test

Duration
60 Minutes
No. of Questions
30 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Aptitute Test
Interview Experience
The Aptitude Section included 2 sections, 1 Quantitative and 1 Data Interpretation. These were pretty straight-forward questions and if you have done a week's preparation for these, you would be able to ace it.
Interview Tips
The test has individual cutoff for both sections so do keep it in mind while giving the test and these test copies are used by interviewers during the interview process and have an equal weightage as the interview round, so do your best in the test as well because it will help you at the end during your final evaluation.
Round 2

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Usual HR Questions along with some situational questions like what would you do in such a condition.
Interview Experience
There were 2 people who were taking my interview, 1 Indian and 1 was probably from Atlanta Office of Kabbage. They were quite friendly throughout the interview and since I was doing great in the interview, they were also helping me throughout the interview.
Interview Tips
The first round of interview is the most important and it gives confidence to us and also makes a huge impact upon the interviewer. So, if you have aced the first round of interview, then there are good chances of your selection.
Round 3

Puzzle Interview

Interview Questions
    Interview Experience
    There were some standard puzzles from standard books that we use. I knew them already and aced this round as well.
    Interview Tips
    Feel confident and instead of directly giving out the answer show your thought process to the interviewer even if you are unable to figure out the right answer.
    Round 4

    Behavioural Interview

    Interview Questions
      Interview Experience
      It was the shortest round that I had of just 10 minutes. The interviewer was asking some general questions from my CV.
      Interview Tips
      It was a round just to check the behavior as the interviewer was a very experienced man. So, don't do anything stupid at this point.
      Round 5

      HR Interview

      Interview Questions
        Interview Experience
        There was again finally this one HR interview where some standard questions were asked like why Kabbage? why hire you? etc.
        Interview Tips
        It was a pretty easy round and the overall evaluation I think constituted 20% from each interview round and 20% from test. So, keep your cool in this round as it is a decisive one.

        Round 1

        Test

        Round 2

        Technical Interview

        Interview Questions
        • Question 1: A basic question on Bayes Theorem
        • Question 2: Few Complicated questions using Probablity which will be assisted by the interviewer as you interact with them
        • Question 3: Few Finance Questions
        Interview Experience
        The first round of interview was identifying your interest and testing it. I told I am good at Math and Fin and I was asked all probab and Fin questions. Many others were asked Guesstimates and Puzzles
        Interview Tips
        Be confident and keep talking and keep interacting, even when you are struggling- it's more about the ideas you put on the table than the answers. Be thorough in basics of probab including all kinds of distribution and all.
        Also the job is for analysing Credit Card usage. And it is a gloabla financial firm. So for questions like, "Tell about yourself" or "Walk me through the resume", keep telling how you are good at handling data. And if you have Fin background, pitch about it.
        Round 3

        Technical + HR Interview

        Interview Questions
        • Question 1: Guesstimate to find number of Credit Cards in India
        • Question 2: Other questions asking you to convince them you are good for the job
        Interview Experience
        The interview was mostly a stress interview. They kept telling me that I am somehow not so good for the job and my knowledge in the field is insufficient. And I kept convincing them back that I am indeed a good candidate.
        Interview Tips
        Keep calm. Prepare HR questions perfectly. You should talk to them as if you are dying too get this job and detail it to them that you are the best candidate for this job. You have to tell them that you have some special capability that others don't (I told about my knowledge in Fin). And you should be really special in that and be able to answer anything.
        Round 4

        HR Interview

        Interview Questions
        • Question 1: Simple questions like how serious are you about Citicorp and how bad you want the job
        Interview Experience
        Basic HR questions to test if you are really serious about the hjob and firm. If you did previous 2 intervies well, this must be a cakewalk.
        Interview Tips
        Be ready to give answers convincing them that this job is the most important thing in your life

        Deutsche bank analyst interview

        I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Bombay for ANALYST role at Deutsche bank
        Interview Process
        Resume Shortlist HR Interview
        Round 1

        Resume Shortlist

        Interview Experience
        A lot of fundaes regarding the writing of the resume were given at a session by McKinsey earlier in the year. I prepared my basic resume based on that and changed it according to suggestions from some friends. Pre-placement talks are essential for getting a broad understanding of the company and the work that one is going to be doing in the job, inspite of the fact that a much nicer version of the reality may be presented in these talks. If one does not have a good idea about a particular sector or a company, attending PPTs can help a lot.About 90 people were shortlisted initially for the inteview, based mainly on a test conducted by the company earlier. The test evaluated students on basic quantitative and DI skills. Out of those, after an interview of about 20-25 mins, about half were shortlisted for the second and the last interview, which immediately followed the first one.
        Round 2

        HR Interview

        Interview Questions
          Interview Experience
          In my case, the only interview I attended was for Deutsche Bank, and it did not require any such special preparation.However, some basic finance fundaes were obtained with the help of google and wikipedia. I prepared for interviews with some of my friends. We conducted mock interviews of one another, asking possible questions, especially the HR ones. If done seriously, it helps a lot, in terms of preparation for the few stock questions in interviews and others that one can anticipate. A lot of improvements can be suggested by your friends in terms of framing answers correctly and many other things. Preparation is best done in groups.
          Round 3

          Interview Experience
          The entire interview process consisted of two interviews. The first interview could be called technical, but it was a wide ranging interview. I was initially asked about my stream of engg. The interviewer knew a surprisingly good amount of aero, and I was asked a lot of aerospace related questions, most of which I could answer satisfactorily. I was asked general questions about life in IIT, my hobbies, etc, and some questions on statistics. Finally, I was asked if I knew something about finance. On answering in the affirmative, I was asked questions about options, futures and other such trading basics. The interviewers knew that a workshop on finance had been conducted on campus earlier, so one was expected to have some elementary knowledge about such things.The second interview was a very short one, basically an HR interview. I was asked the usual questions that are asked in an HR interview. They can be easily found out on the net or on documents available in the institute. Be sure to prepare for those questions and know your resume very well. Those two things essentially define how such an interview will go.
          Interview Tips
          The ideal way to prepare would be to study seriously for CAT! The practice of solving quant and DI questions that one gets in CAT preparation is invaluable for doing well in the test of this as well as many other companies. Doing well in the test is really the key element in the recruitment process. Once the hurdle of the test is cleared, you can present yourself in the way that you want, and lead the interviewer to your areas of comfort by preparing well. Arguably the biggest tool available for preparing for job interviews is the internet. Be sure to find out some info about the company, about your job profile and the expected skills, these can give a direction to your preparation.

            Test Sections
            • Section 1: Written
            Interview Experience
            There were 4 sections: Maths, Finance, English, DI and Quant, No negative marking. 
            The Maths section had questions on basic probability and statistics. Also the Maths section had a higher weight age than the other sections (Questions carrying 3 marks each while other sections had 1 or 2 marks for each question. They were here, offering a quant profile so that justifies the distribution.) 
            The DI/Quant (2 marks each) and English (1 Mark Each) section were similar to CAT. 
            The finance section had questions on Basic Accounting.
            Interview Tips
            Anyone who did well in the Maths section could find his name in the shortlist.
            Round 2

            HR Interview

            Interview Questions
            • Question 1: Tell me about yourself from the day u were born till today.
            • Question 2: What is a Brownian motion? Properties of Brownian motion?
            • Question 3: What is a Martingale? What are Markov Processes? Is Martingale a Markov Process? Are Markov Processes Martingales?
            • Question 4: One trait of yours that you're not proud of?
            • Question 5: Puzzle: m2 = n2 + 32294
            • Question 6: In a group would it be better for me to assume a leadership position or simply be a part of it? Why?
            Interview Experience
            It was a 20-25 minute round. There were 2 interviewers, one of them was the HR manager and the other was a Quant Guy.
            In the first question, they stopped me mid way when I mentioned the finance course.
            The puzzle was also asked in last year’s interview.
            Interview Tips
            I’m still not sure about why I did not qualify for the next round but one of the possible reasons was, I had mentioned my short temperedness as my weakness and later I came to know, this is considered to be a highly undesirable trait in the Investment Banking jobs. So be a bit careful while answering this question.

              General Tips
              I would like to start this article by telling you something about your major concern, and that is “Will this economic crisis has a telling effect on your job prospects ?”. And the answer is both Yes and No. I am a 5th year Mathematics student and have closely seen the placements of 3 batches and from my experience, I can surely say that “One who prepares well , gets through, No matter how tough the situation is". It happened with my batch and your batch won’t be an exception (Unless a catastrophe happens).Dilemma: Most of you guys sitting for placement shall be in your 7th semester which is considered to be one of the most hectic of all the semesters. Many of you might be preparing for CAT, others for GRE, some of you would have got a tough guide for your final year project. So you need to prioritize things. You need to think it through; “A Realistic Self Analysis” always helps. I’ll share what I did. I did join coaching classes for CAT but my first priority always was placements and accordingly I planned and executed things. Getting a 99+ percentile and then clearing the GD and PI’s was too much of a risk for me to take. So this might be one of the better times to go for your MBA but always have other options ready just in case.Resume for Analytics Companies:Most of the analytics companies have a lot of Statistical Analysis and Data Management work. So, candidates having an experience in Data handling are preferred. If some project of yours involved Data Handling, mention it in detail. If you have done some of the applied Statistics courses in the Maths/IME department, mention it in your resume.

              A written test for 2 hours. Around 15 were selected for the interviews. Eligibility to write the test was initially 8+ CGPA and was open for EC, CS, EE and IT. It consisted of Multiple choice questions on C-aptitude and General aptitude; a subjective type section that had riddles and some easy questions, another bonus section that had a real life problem (we had an easy question on Server topology that required some analysis on resources, latency and reliability).

                  For all the Analyst positions in finance companies, a strong understanding of OOP concepts is required. Puzzles : gurmeet.net/puzzles/ This is by far the best collection of puzzles (with solutions) I have come across; and many questions in my previous interviews and test were asked from this list.<br /> C-aptitude and aptitude practice was from the previous tests given for other companies.
                  General Tips
                  If you have attended previous interviews or tests and not selected for the job, try to see where you went wrong and learn from your mistakes. I didn't do any explicit preparation for the tests or the interviews (which I think I should have). Do your homework after a test/interview if it went badly. My previous half a dozen interviews helped me crack this one. When facing the interviewer, carry a notebook, pen and a copy of your resume. When you do not know an answer, the interviewer might explain the solution or just ask you to refer a book. Take a note of this in your notebook. This will show your interest to learn things and how organized you are and also will help you do your homework for the next interview.

                  The panel that had come for us were extremely friendly. In the interviews, they let us complete our answers and were very patient unlike many other interviews.

                  Interviews are not so challenging. Know every single point written on your resume. Knowing something on Data Analysis, Machine Learning helps. Strong understanding of Object Oriented Programming is a must. Wear business formals for the tests and interviews (as the students writing the test are shortlisted based on GPA, they expected us to wear Business formals during the PPT and tests), preferably also a tie. Show interest in their company and keep smiling and stay positive.

                          Interview

                          Interview Questions
                          • Question 1: Explain the current economic scenario and financial products.
                          • Question 2: Why Deutsche Bank over Goldman Sachs or World Quant?
                          • Question 3: Why not MS?
                          Interview Experience
                          DB was my dream job, with great seniors at that firm, its corporate culture, vast global exposure, and most importantly finance. I went to interview with three DB people, and when I came out of the room, I knew I had nailed it! There is no other way to put it. They grilled me on my career choices and knowledge of finance and economics and I seriously blew them away with my responses. I felt they had to make me an offer.
                          And, then I sat for the next round of interview. My second interview at DB went well. After the interview ended, within a minute, they made me an offer which I gladly accepted.
                          Interview Tips
                          (a) HR questions: This is the most important part for any interview. In companies like DB, your communication skills coupled with your preparation of such questions account for more than 70% of a candidate’s selection. Answering questions about your career goals, interests, and your career thus far should become second nature by the end of November. You must also know the firms and job profiles inside out. I worked on this specific area, and by the end of the placement session, I had gained a reputation among my wingies for my expertise at answering HR questions.

                          (b) Puzzles: Since this is a non-core sector, puzzles are the only way to objectively test the ability of candidates with diverse backgrounds. Look up braingle.com and techinterview.org. These two should suffice. Also, whenever you come across a puzzle that you’ve already encountered, pretend as if you’re going through it for the first time. Don’t rush through. This is your opportunity to impress them. Do not squander it away!

                          (c) Finance and economic affairs: If you have a comprehensive knowledge of the financial markets, national economy, and international affairs, in addition to the above two, it is highly improbable that you won’t be selected. For brushing up these, read the Economist (print or online), and read through the opinion pages of Economic Times or the Business Standard for 2-3 months leading to the Placement season. You CANNOT afford to walk into the interview ignorant of terms like European debt crisis, global financial crisis, fiscal cliff, QE, and basic finance like options, hedging etc. Wikipedia, Investopedia and J.C.Hull (first few chapters) are great sources to pick up these.

                            General Tips
                            1. If you are a B.Tech. student, do not be under the wrong impression that you can target all sectors- core as well as non-core. It is really difficult to prepare comprehensively for all companies, especially if you are in the B.Tech. program owing to time constraints.



                            2. The Dual degree students have an edge over you for precisely two reasons. Firstly, they get more time to prepare for the placements, and have learnt vicariously from their B.Tech. batch mates experiences. Secondly, they tend to have higher retention rates (good for the companies).



                            3. Work on your English communication skills which are crucial for performing well in interviews and GDs.



                            Let neither of these become an obstacle by leaving no stone unturned in the course of your preparations.

(You might get brownie points for that)
