    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview Details

    good systematic process. Met few middle to peer level managers, discussed areas of expertise, understood their organization, their business,etc. It was similar to my background, so I thought I was a good fit and got the same feeling from them too.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Credit Suisse in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Internal referral -- 2 phone interviews over the course of 3 weeks and then heard nothing for 2 weeks. I followed up multiple times via email and phone but folks were frequently out of the office for extended periods of time. Finally after 7 weeks they told me via email that they chose another candidate.

    2 rounds, a campus interview followed by super day. Most of the questions are behavioral ones and they seem to figure out whether you are suited to work there in the whole process.

    Business Reference Data Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Credit Suisse in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was invited to come in to interview at the Raleigh office. The HR guy who escorted me in was very nice and brought me into the interview room. I waited probably around 15 min or so and the first lady came in and started off a basic behavioral question interview. The questions were easy and typical of this type of interview, but the lady kept texting on her phone while I was talking. I paused for a moment mid-answer because she wasn't listening, and she said she was sorry and that she had a meeting or something coming up. Regardless, she kept doing it periodically to the end. When it was my time to ask questions, she said she had to go. This was very unprofessional and I was about to call her out on it, but realized my place and decided to pretend everything was fine.

    The next lady who came in greeted me and begin more behavioral interview questions. She seemed a bit pushy with some questions, but at least she paid attention to me and wasn't texting on her phone. When it was my time to ask questions, I was only able to ask about 2 before she also had to leave.

    Overall this was by far the most unprofessional interview I have ever had. Texting during an interview is completely unacceptable. Also, If they can't schedule enough time for the interviewee to ask questions, then reschedule. Also, I tried reaching out several times to follow up with Credit Suisse and to this day, I have gotten no response. Also, this was 1 of 2 separate positions I have interviewed for, and I still do not get a response.

    Fortunately, I landed a job with a bank with better ethical background.

    Credit Suisse Summer Analyst (Fixed Income) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the company website, they got back to me after 3-4 weeks. I received an email telling me to sign up for (first round) interview times; the interview was over web cam. It was pretty easy to set up.
    First round interview was purely fit questions, lasted thirty minutes. The interviewer was really nice, and the questions were pretty standard fit questions like "tell me about a time when you worked in a team". The sound quality was pretty bad though.
    Didn't make it through to the next round. No feedback received, and I was told that I couldn't ask for feedback either.
