    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Credit Suisse in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    This was through a MBA campus recruiting. I submitted my cv and I was invited to interview. I was flown from Ann Arbor to New York. It was on a Saturday. The morning started with a company introduction and the private banking industry, then later a case study. There was a quick presentation, and then a lunch and networking session. Interview was in the afternoon. The interview was not technical, but rather more personality base.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview Details

    Participated via the campus recruiting process. First interview with associates and vice presidents on campus, mainly general fit questions, couple of brain teasers. Second interview in Credit SUisse's offices, interviewing with specific teams. All levels interviewed from Associate to MD. Very detailed questions, have been drilled on past experience a lot. I really liked that everybody was very specific and they did not tried to hire me for a generic position.

    • It was related to an accounting treatment of a convertible hybrid transaction, very deal and country specific question   Answer Question
