    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview process just involved 2 30min phone calls, first with someone from IBD and second with someone from S&T side. They were very nice and asked the typical questions that you would expect. They didn't make it too technical but of course expected you to have your own views on market and economic trends.

    Summer Analyst IBD Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (London, England (UK)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The final round consisted of three interviews in total. Two of them were mostly competency-based and the third one consisted of a case study. I needed to demonstrate my interest in the firm and the job I had applied for but no high degree of technical competency was expected. I think that it is important to come across as someone they can imagine themselves working with.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was put in touch with someone within prime services after applying on line. The role did not match exactly my prior experience but I worked on similar tasks and my skills could have been easily transferred. The Interviewer was very nice. We got on very well. He took a lot of time to explain the job to me and to get to know me. We talked about common technical interested beyond those required by the job spec. Unfortunately they went for someone who had prior experience in that specific role.

    IBD Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    One assessment centre - no telephone interview Round 1: 2 competency interviews with VP/Associate. Depending on your background it could be technical or competency. If pass this stage, you go to the next round on the same day Round 2: 2 competency and one case study with DIR/MD level. Genuinely just wanted to know you for who you are and your passion outside work. CS is a different to other US banks I had interviews with. My background is not technical so they only quizzed me on the basics i.e which company is a better buy etc It was nice to have DIR/MD getting involved in the recruitment process

    Interview Questions

    • Why CS, why IBD, what's your story, opinion on the Greek's crisis, oil prices and its impact, it is quite hard to prepare for certain questions!   Answer Question
