Director Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Application Details

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Credit Suisse.

Interview Details

Contact made via a Head Hunter. First interview was with the hiring technology manager. In his office, cordial, warm and intelligent. Second interview was set for a different day with an MD from the business and a Director from the business. 3rd Round included another technology Director, the Global Head of the Business and the global head of equity technology (at the time). The biz guy gave a sales pitch and tried to sell what they were doing more than ask me questions. The IT head asked about experience and "what-if: scenarios. He was most anxious to understand how I would manage the relationship with the business.

    Very thorough interview for the director position. Included multiple interviews with various MD and Directors. Also had to go through various tests, including an assessment center full day interview which included an IQ, personality and skills tests. Additionally, the interview included some live role playing and negotiations with two reviewers who did the role playing and observations. Additionally, had to go through the usual background and drug test. Very thorough, but fair tests.

    Preference is for internal candidates and then external hiring will commence. Candidates will be selected from list of applicants. Job interviews will be done for the first round and then there are few more round of interviews for the selection. Most of the interviews are oral and there is no written exam.
