    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Credit Suisse (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and got invitation to a panel interview 2 weeks later. They booked my flight and accommodation. The entire process and all people involved were very professional. They were mostly interested in my personality, background and motivation. The atmosphere was nice and I think the interviews went well. Despite their promise, they never contacted me again. I tried to follow up with their HR and never got any response. I had a great interview experience, but I expected them to follow up with me after investing time and some money into this trip. Disappearing after 4 interviews just did not fit into the picture of professionalism they displayed throughout the process.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    One OCR interview, superday in the office. People are nice during interviews, but the office environment may not be the greatest one in the industry. The interviews are not anything special, but they really want to know who you are! Study a bit about the firm's culture and tailor your story so that it fits what the firm is looking for.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview

    I received an interview through on campus recruitment after review of my resume. After a successful first interview, I was invited to the company for several interviews within the Technology department. These were very average interviews and I was not asked a single technical question which was highly unusual. The last interviewer merely asked what books I had read recently and then refused to provide his card business card at the end of the interview. It was easy to figure it out based on the other business cards that I was given, so I made sure to email each interviewer a thank you, including this last interviewer. He replied, "You are very analytic, so I am not surprised that you figured out my email. I think you would be better suited in a position that takes advantage of your logical thinking." My interviewers appeared unfamiliar with my resume when we met up, and then they completely tuned out when they read that I studied mathematics. My resume lists expertise in a plethora of programming languages, but I guess this was not enough to take me seriously. I strongly suggest that you find a way to discuss your programming skill if you do not have a computer science or engineering degree.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume through university recruiting, and I was contacted through the school. Interview occurred about two weeks after the result, with one VP from the team. The interviewer asked some behavioral interview questions (about yourself, why CS, why Er) and then asked me about my stock pitch. Afterwards, the interviewer shared his own insight in Er, which really helped me further want to get into the group.

    Application

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter after having dropped my resume off at a career fair a couple of months before. The recruiter quickly set up a first round phone interview for the next day. This consisted of a mix between personality and programming-specific questions and lasted about 30-45 minutes. I was then notified the same day that I was being invited to a face-to-face interview, which was scheduled for the very next day. The face-to-face interview consisted of similar questions as the phone interview. It consisted of three 30 minute interviews.
