    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed 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.

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    First round was at my university followed by a superday in the New York City office. All interviews were mostly behavioral with some general technical questions about data structures, object oriented programming, and polymorphism. I was also asked to go through my resume and about what type of projects I was interested in. I heard back a little over two weeks after the superday that I had an offer.

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter after having dropped my resume off at a career fair a couple of months before. The recruiter quickly set up a first round phone interview for the next day. This consisted of a mix between personality and programming-specific questions and lasted about 30-45 minutes. I was then notified the same day that I was being invited to a face-to-face interview, which was scheduled for the very next day. The face-to-face interview consisted of similar questions as the phone interview. It consisted of three 30 minute interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    There was a phone interview and also a face to face interview in nyc. Both interviews were mostly behavioral, but you should definitely prepare. I think that the best part of it is that you get to meet a lot of different people from the firm, so you have the chance to be liked by at least one person that interviews you. Also, I would recommend keeping in touch with the interviewers after the interview ends. AND DONT forget to send thank you emails to any person that you meet on the interviewing day.
