Deutsche Bank Internship Interview Experience | On-Campus 2021
Deutsche Bank visited our campus on 7 Sep 2021 for Summer Internship 2022.
Eligibility – Branch – CSE, IT, E&TC
Criterion – 7.0 CGPA and above, no Live ATKT.
The coding test was conducted on the HackerEarth platform.
Test Pattern –
Coding questions – Total number of questions: 2
- Given n numbers, you can remember k distinct integers. For every extra integer you can’t remember, you have to pay a value X, find the total amount you have to pay.
- Based on String
Multiple Choice Questions – questions based on OOPS, DBMS, OS, and CN – No negative marking
- Total number of questions: 10
- A total of 26 students was shortlisted to appear for interviews from around 600 applicants. I was one of them.
- The cutoff was 1 and a half coding questions and getting 80% of MCQs correct.
- The preplacement talk was given only to the shortlisted students at 8 AM on interview day.
Tech round 1: Started at 9.30 AM. Started with Tell me about yourself question and cross-questions on my elevator pitch.
After that a bunch of questions on DBMS. The interviewer was very strict.
- What is a relational database?
- Explain joins.
- Difference between union and union all in DBMS
- Difference between delete and truncate
- What are database languages?
- What are the different types of constraints in the database?
- What is schema? What are attributes and tuples?
- Query for finding 2nd maximum salary.
- What is a unique constraint and how many null values it can hold?
Moving on to the Data Structure part now:
- Share your screen and write a program to count total numbers of ‘a’ in your name and display the count.
- Explain and implement bubble sort on the given array.
- After this interviewer was asking the next question but there was a network issue at their end. The interview abruptly stopped as the interviewer left the meet. I was there on a skype call informing the student coordinator about this and their HR manager said that interview is complete! (without discussion on my projects and resume)
- I was very disappointed after this scene. After around 3 hours my interviewer called me on my cell phone number asking that do I have any questions to ask as it did not end well in the morning. I asked one question. This gave me hope for getting selected for Tech round 2.
I was waiting for the result and my name wasn’t there for Tech round 2.
There might be two reasons for this –
- The network issue that messed up the entire flow of the interview
- I might not have answered DBMS questions up to the mark.
Lesson learned –
- Sometimes things are not in your hand, luck does matter!
- Focus on core subjects, don’t take DBMS lightly.
13 students were shortlisted for tech round 2 which started at around 3 PM.
After that 8 were shortlisted for the HR round which happened at around 7 PM.
Finally, 7 were selected. Do prepare well for the HR round too. This was also an elimination round.
