Interview

One OCR interview, superday in the office. People are nice during interviews, but the office environment may not be the greatest one in the industry. The interviews are not anything special, but they really want to know who you are! Study a bit about the firm's culture and tailor your story so that it fits what the firm is looking for.

Interview Questions

  • Basic behavioral/technical questions. Some questions regarding current trend!   Answer Question

    Interview

    2 Interviews for IT.

    One on college campus. Mostly behavioral, but be willing to describe more about the projects you have been working on. As said before, be prepared to talk about how you overcome challenges and having extracurricular projects is definitely plus.

    The second or final interview is on their campus. Feels more like fitting to see best fit team rather than an interview.

    Very nice process, mainly to gauge whether you are willing to learn.

    Interview

    First round is through my school's career services center, final round in a nearby hotel. First round was pretty much all fit questions, like where did you grow up, what was the biggest challenge you faced, why Credit Suisse, etc. Final round was similar but asked more technical questions, like what do Investment Bankers do, etc.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview

    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

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Credit Suisse (New Brunswick, NJ) in January 2014.

    Interview

    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
