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.

IT Analyst
Research Triangle Park, NC

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Credit Suisse in February 2012.

Interview Details – I first got an offer to interview at my school's office of career services. I interviewed with the one of the IT managers and a week later I was contacted and invited to the IT family expo where you basically network with people who work within the department to give you a better idea of what type of job you want to do. After the expo my second interview was scheduled the following week that lasted from 11:30am to 3:30pm. During the process we were given a presentation on the company and had lunch with the managers. Afterwards from 1-3 we performed three 30 minute interviews. The questions were much more personal than technical in my opinion. The interviewers varied as some were much more easy going than others. They contacted me a week after the interview and told me they would not go through with an offer.

The 2nd part is the Interview - all the questions are about yourself and your past; how you solved problems, how you approached solutions, and what are your experiences.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Credit Suisse in January 2011.

Interview Details – They asked all behavior questions. But it is stressful.

The VP said she doesnt have my resume, asked me to send her the resume meanwhile introduce myself.

I have to multi-task....so I am quite nervous.

And she picked that my education background/courses , which is not so related to IT field.

Then all the rest are behavior questions, like why CS, why this position, what is ur biggest weakness and what is your advantage. Those are all common questions like we can prepare.

But the women sounds quite serious and played little tricks on questions that really made you nervous.

The process took a day - interviewed at Credit Suisse in January 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online for an internship through a website offered by my university. They contacted me shortly after for an interview. I interviewed with one interviewer the very next week as did hundreds of other students. The interviewer asked me questions about my interest in the open position, my knowledge and skills, and a few questions about myself. The interviewer also wanted to know my opinion on teamwork. The people seemed to be nice. However, it is a highly competitive company to get a job or internship with. They informed most students in a little over a week on whether or not we had received an offer for an internship with their company.

Interview Question – Are you currently being offered another job or negotiations with another company for a job?   View Answer
