    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Credit Suisse (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Very conversational. They seemed less interested in my specific background and more interested in my culture fit. Lots of questions about how I would work within their operating model and corporate structure. They were thorough in terms of having me meet as many people in person as possible. But lack of specifics on my past work makes me wonder whether they find the right skill-sets in the people they recruit.

    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.

    Interview

    First round was at my university followed by a superday in the New York City office. All interviews were mostly behavioral with some general technical questions about data structures, object oriented programming, and polymorphism. I was also asked to go through my resume and about what type of projects I was interested in. I heard back a little over two weeks after the superday that I had an offer.

    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.
