    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview Details

    I was referred, so had a leg up on the process. I interviewed with my manager and HR twice before being brought in to a very extensive super day style interviews. I interviewed with four MD's and 2 Director's. I sensed that this was mostly about determining fit, and I was able to connect with them easily. People were pretty honest and forthcoming about challenges of CS as well as the upsides.

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Credit Suisse in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    I first interviewed with HR by telephone and then met 1:1. At a later date I interviewed with line managers and was called back for a second round of interviews with senior management. Although the interviews went well I was not surprised by the outcome due to the GFC.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Credit Suisse in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    Informal 20 minute phone interview. Face to face interview on own cost. Face to face was 15 minutes general chat about experience, no competency based questions or detail on technical expertise or understanding. 15 minutes chatting about skiing. In thought it was because I was clearly a good candidate but after working there I realised it was because the manager didn't have a clue. More the fool me.
