IT Summer Analyst Interview

IT Summer Analyst
Raleigh, NC

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Credit Suisse in February 2014.

Interview Details – They came to my school and I had an initial interview on campus. Thought it went horrible but then I was invited for the second round and the Job Family expo at the company. Didn't make it to that event because I had a conference to go to and I left that night. Final round of interviews consisted of 4 30 minute interviews(Including a technical interview) at the company. We had lunch with the managers and current employees then we broke into the interviews. I thought the behavioral interviews went well. I was not prepared for the technical interview and the HR contact basically told us we couldn't prepare for it. The technical interview was the worst interview I've ever had. It was my first one and I thought the questions that were ask were not something a college student looking for an intern position with no experience at Credit Suisse could answer. I didn't get the job and found out about 2 hours after my last interview.

Interview Question – Everything that was asked during the technical interview.   Answer Question

Information Technology Summer Analyst Interview

Information Technology Summer Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Credit Suisse in February 2014.

Interview Details – The recruitment team is very friendly and informative. First round candidates attended a pre-interview reception where we met employees. During first round interview, behavior and tech questions are both asked. Then there was a tour/welcome diner before second round of interview. Second round is composed of 3 interviews. Second round interviews are behavioral. Questions I encountered were about leadership experiences, ethics (how would you handle this situation where your co-worker is leaking crucial information to someone outside the company).

Interview Question – object oriented programming questions   Answer Question

IT Summer Analyst Interview

IT Summer Analyst
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Credit Suisse in February 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online, both through my university and through the Credit Suisse online application. I was pre-selected for an on-campus interview, which was 1:1 and behavioral. After a week I was invited to second round interviews on-site at the Credit Suisse offices in New York. The second round consisted of 3 half-hour long interviews, two of which were behavioral and third was a job-fit interview. The overall experience was pleasant and all of the employees I spoke with were very friendly and inviting.

The night before the on-site interviews, there was a Welcome Dinner which included a tour of the offices and the opportunity to ask questions to current senior-employees as well as recent full-time hires. The morning of the interviews (mine were morning interviews) we were given a small continental breakfast before the interviews.

The behavioral were the typical, "Tell me about a time you worked on a team and there was a difference of opinion on how to approach the project. How did you handle it?" The job-fit interview focused on assessing how much I actually knew about the technical projects and class subjects listed on my resume. For example, a project on my resume mentioned the use of multi-threading so I was asked how I handled thread safety.

IT Analyst Interview

IT Analyst
Chapel Hill, NC

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Credit Suisse in January 2014.

Interview Details – Their interview process through a university requires students to apply online, submitting a cover letter and resume, then students are selected to have an on-campus interview. If that goes well, students are invited to an on-site meet and greet to learn more about the divisions of the internships. After this process, students must go to a super day, where they are required to go through four interviews. After the super day, internship positions are determined and told to the interviewees.
