Operations Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Raleigh, NC

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Credit Suisse in April 2012.

Interview Details

Easy interview. Operations is an easy job to land. Just have a strong resume hilighting time management, organization, and leadership. Don't mention front-office in interview. That pisses them of.

Why Operations? I said i like seeing things from start to finish. I like to try and make things more efficient.

Architect or builder ( or some other stupid question)?
builder - have a vision, manage, and sit back and be able to accomplishment.

    Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Credit Suisse in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very cut and dry process - one hour interview, split into two separate ones. First had two people in it - asked extremely boring questions, weaknesses, strengths, how do you go about solving a problem, leadership, etc. Second asked similar questions. Overall, it was an easy interview, however it showed a lack of creativity on their part and did not seem like an exciting job at all.

    Reasons for Declining

    The department the job was in did not seem like a good fit - the people who interviewed seemed boring.

    Interview Details

    I applied through online virtual recruiting. The interview process was fairly quick (about 1 week). I had 3 Skype interviews with employees working in various divisions of operations. Overall, the interviews were simple (mainly behavioral and fit-based questions). Heard back from HR within 3 days.

    Interview Details

    the process is pretty straight forward, got email from cs saying for a AC first after applying for a couple of month, and went to their office for the AC. in total 6 people were in the same session and most of the candidates were from diverse background. Not really able to build a rapport with interviewer managers.

    Interview Details

    Firstly numerical and verbal online tests were completed. 1st interview stage consisted of two 30 minute interviews, all competancy based (eg Why credit suisse, why Operations, what are your skills and weaknesses). Then 2nd round interviews was the same style but with VP's who grilled you a bit more to see if you researched the role fully.
