    Business Reference Data Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Credit Suisse in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was invited to come in to interview at the Raleigh office. The HR guy who escorted me in was very nice and brought me into the interview room. I waited probably around 15 min or so and the first lady came in and started off a basic behavioral question interview. The questions were easy and typical of this type of interview, but the lady kept texting on her phone while I was talking. I paused for a moment mid-answer because she wasn't listening, and she said she was sorry and that she had a meeting or something coming up. Regardless, she kept doing it periodically to the end. When it was my time to ask questions, she said she had to go. This was very unprofessional and I was about to call her out on it, but realized my place and decided to pretend everything was fine.

    The next lady who came in greeted me and begin more behavioral interview questions. She seemed a bit pushy with some questions, but at least she paid attention to me and wasn't texting on her phone. When it was my time to ask questions, I was only able to ask about 2 before she also had to leave.

    Overall this was by far the most unprofessional interview I have ever had. Texting during an interview is completely unacceptable. Also, If they can't schedule enough time for the interviewee to ask questions, then reschedule. Also, I tried reaching out several times to follow up with Credit Suisse and to this day, I have gotten no response. Also, this was 1 of 2 separate positions I have interviewed for, and I still do not get a response.

    Fortunately, I landed a job with a bank with better ethical background.

    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.
