    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Credit Suisse in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was On-Campus Hiring so I applied through College recruitment portal. They shortlisted 23 students in total. We were invited to dinner the night before the interview (Kind of a networking event). The first round was behavioral. Those selected will have to give 3-4 technical interviews in their NYC office.

    Interview Questions
    • It was a behavioral interview so nothing was unexpected. First they went over my resume and asked me about my Internship and project experiences. They stressed on leadership qualities (a lot!) and how I would handle pressure situations. And finally why are you trying to get into a financial company (since my major was Computer Engineering) and why this particular company   Answer Question

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview Details

    I had a first-round interview with CS for a summer analyst position. The questions weren't very difficult, but my interviewer was very unpleasant. He didn't seem to want to be there at all, and it was very difficult to engage him. Questions were mostly about my resume and past experiences, a couple of technical questions. Nothing about why I wanted to join CS.

    Interview Questions
    • A couple technical questions that I wasn't very well prepared for because I don't have a finance background, but nothing too bad   Answer Question
