Deutsche Bank Interview Experience for Graduate Analyst | On-Campus 2021
Deutsche Bank visited our campus for the full-time role of Graduate Analyst.
The selection process consisted of 4 rounds in total.
Round 1: Online Coding Test
- The test was conducted on the HackerEarth platform. It consisted of 3 questions (+20,+50,+50) of medium to hard difficulty with an allotted time of 90 mins. (Never underestimate Binary search)
- A total of 12 students were selected ( possibly on a score+CGPA basis ).
Round 2: Technical Interview
- The round was on Skype and was about 45-60 min long. There was a brief discussion and follow-up questions on my project and OOPS.
- I was given a coding question followed by a low-level design of a parking lot. I was asked to use an appropriate data structure to implement it and handle various situations like detecting empty slots, ticket costs, etc.
Round 3: Technical Interview
- I must mention that the interviewer in this round was super chill and very friendly ( that’s luck! ). He straight away told me not to attempt questions in which I had no idea because he wanted to judge me on the things that I actually know. He asked me detailed questions related to my project ( specific reason for using a particular technology etc ), SQL queries ( nth highest salary ), and discussion on OOPS and DBMS. He asked me whether I could write a microprocessor code for a question, which I denied categorically. This round lasted for around 45 mins.
Round 4: Pro-Fit Round
It was basically a technical+HR round. I was asked to normalize a table explaining the various normal forms as well with an example. This was asked specifically because I had made a reference to it during a previous discussion with him. So, watch out what you speak. He asked me a couple of situational questions like :
- Why not higher studies?
- How would you organize an event for your college committee?
One just needs to be confident and honest while answering these questions. This round lasted for around 40 mins.
Round 5: HR Round
- I was asked a few questions related to my hobbies and how they’ve helped me in the process. She inquired about my family background and few situational questions.
Four students were selected and I was fortunate to be among them. A few tips that might help you for interviews in general as well :
- Be lucky! I feel one needs a good amount of luck in interviews. One disinterested interviewer can simply ruin everything.
- Think out loud – I had no clue about that designing question but I made sure to convey whatever I knew to the interviewer. If you have no idea then also explain the brute approach.
- Confidence – Explain each and everything explicitly and confidently. Do not assume that so and so approach is too basic to be explained. In short, don’t be lazy and explain confidently. You’ve really put a lot of effort to reach there and that should reflect in your answers as well.
- Pay attention to the company PPT.
That’s all folks!
