    As expected some questions regarding CV and prior internships. The team presented their department and role within CS as well. Nothing came up unsurprisingly. Welcoming atmosphere in total. I received feedback within two days. Excellent internal organisation by the way

    Interview

    The first round is phone interview and the person asked me behaviour questions for half an hour. I waited for 2 weeks to hear back from him and he asked me to schedule a time for the second round of interview (office tour, big day). I met two VP's and one Managing Director. They asked me some technical questions after asking me a few more behaviour questions. It was an intense and tiring day.

    Interview

    A lot of Tests, very long interview round in Person and on telephone. They asked highly dificult and detailed questions. But employees of CS were very forecoming and not unprofessional in interviews so that took a lot of pressure away.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Credit Suisse (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I was a summer associate, so the result of my internship was a line of questioning around "Do you want this job?" and my answer was yes. Sorry if that's not particularly helpful but if you know private banking is your intended path, try and get the internship first.

    Otherwise have a solid knowledge of the wealth management business, investment trends and products, and be able to build a relationship easily.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Credit Suisse in February 2015.

    Interview

    Worst interview process ever seen. Took 5 months and a month for each interview. Whenever checked for update only answer I got was "will let you know next week". When I was offered this position and salary was not at all even close to market, 30% less than market trend. Finally got another offer from a very good company and I moved on.
