    Summer Analyst Interview

    Interview Details

    2 Interviews for IT.

    One on college campus. Mostly behavioral, but be willing to describe more about the projects you have been working on. As said before, be prepared to talk about how you overcome challenges and having extracurricular projects is definitely plus.

    The second or final interview is on their campus. Feels more like fitting to see best fit team rather than an interview.

    Very nice process, mainly to gauge whether you are willing to learn.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the company website, they got back to me after 3-4 weeks. I received an email telling me to sign up for (first round) interview times; the interview was over web cam. It was pretty easy to set up.
    First round interview was purely fit questions, lasted thirty minutes. The interviewer was really nice, and the questions were pretty standard fit questions like "tell me about a time when you worked in a team". The sound quality was pretty bad though.
    Didn't make it through to the next round. No feedback received, and I was told that I couldn't ask for feedback either.
