    Interview

    Multi Staged, interviewed with multiple HR people, and people from the actual buisness line.

    Refrence process is rather tedious.

    Normal interview process: introduce yourself -> go through your resume -> ask questions. The culture there is mild, don't be too soft or too aggressive when you are asking the questions. If you can speak fluent Japanese, it definitely helps.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Mizuho Financial Group (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    It was the worst interview experience I have ever had in my career. Both the HR person and the hiring manager were very rude and cocky. They asked very tough questions unrelated to the position trying to catch me off guard. They did not have my resume in hand and did not even read my resume before seeing me. The job they described was totally not consistent with the pay. They did not seem to respect me as an interviewee. It was a total waste of my time. They forgot that I am interviewing the company just as much as they’re interviewing me. They are definitely not the type of people I want to work with. I absolutely regretted to apply for this company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mizuho Financial Group (New York, NY (US)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through the University and had a phone call within a week with two interviewers. Questions from first interviewer were what do you know about Mizuho Bank? Second interviewer asked all technical questions about the three main valuation methodologies and how I would go about analyzing a firm from a credit perspective.

    Heard back the following day that I earned a superday. Mizuho will only pay for your flight and not cover your travel expenses to and from the airport. During the superday, had seven interviews. Nearly all technical questions and mainly Q&A for the interviewee. Also, was asked why corporate banking? Importance of free cash-flow from a credit perspective? Asked about solvency and liquidity ratios. And of course tell me about yourself?
