    Interview Details

    Contacted to go up to NYC to the office. First we had this lunch and networking, and then there was a series of interviews. I had three interviews overall, each took about 30 minutes. Mostly behavioral/fit questions. Interviewers were nice and I think they did a good job of providing a welcoming and not-too-intense atmosphere so that you felt comfortable before going in to the interview.

    Interview Details

    I had 13 interviews on 5 separate days for a VP-level job. Most interviewers were totally unprepared, had no idea who I was or why I was there. One Branch Manager said, "I don't know why we're even looking at someone for that position." Another CEO direct report said, "I have a tie over there on the hook but I didn't think you were important enough to put it on."

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview Details

    Received a phone call from HR to set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. The phone interview itself lasted about 15 minutes and was very relaxed. Was then contacted by HR to set up an in person interview. Interviewed with hiring manager and team leader. Both were very relaxed and it felt like a conversation rather than being grilled.

    Interview Questions
    • Lots of questions about problem solving where they want specific examples. Most unexpected was probably "when was a time you had to work hard to achieve something you believed in."   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They offer a standard starting salary to everyone and it was higher than I expected, so I did not try to negotiate.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview Details

    I got an interview through on-campus recruiting (target school). I was asked to do some mental math and brainteasers, which I breezed through. I was also asked some questions on my resume. It was a pretty standard interview for an S&T summer internship. Unfortunately, I did not get a superday.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really unexpected, but one problem was dividing a 9-digit number by another 9-digit number and guessing what the answer would be (to the nearest integer).   Answer Question

    Information Technology Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Credit Suisse in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    My interview was scheduled to be 30 minutes in my Career Development Center but we both started late and finished late. Before the interview, two other representatives were in the waiting room having casual conversations with those of us there. This was definitely relaxing and a good way to learn more about Credit Suisse. The actual interview questions were behavioral, situational, and technical (Java examples). My interviewer was somewhat intimidating, and I could tell when I didn't answer something the way he wanted me to. He also didn't shake my hand after our interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Java questions were comparing strings and using switch cases.   Answer Question
