IT Summer Analyst Interview

IT Summer Analyst
Raleigh, NC

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Credit Suisse in February 2014.

Interview Details – They came to my school and I had an initial interview on campus. Thought it went horrible but then I was invited for the second round and the Job Family expo at the company. Didn't make it to that event because I had a conference to go to and I left that night. Final round of interviews consisted of 4 30 minute interviews(Including a technical interview) at the company. We had lunch with the managers and current employees then we broke into the interviews. I thought the behavioral interviews went well. I was not prepared for the technical interview and the HR contact basically told us we couldn't prepare for it. The technical interview was the worst interview I've ever had. It was my first one and I thought the questions that were ask were not something a college student looking for an intern position with no experience at Credit Suisse could answer. I didn't get the job and found out about 2 hours after my last interview.

Interview Question – Everything that was asked during the technical interview.   Answer Question

IT Summer Analyst Interview

IT Summer Analyst

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Credit Suisse in February 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online, both through my university and through the Credit Suisse online application. I was pre-selected for an on-campus interview, which was 1:1 and behavioral. After a week I was invited to second round interviews on-site at the Credit Suisse offices in New York. The second round consisted of 3 half-hour long interviews, two of which were behavioral and third was a job-fit interview. The overall experience was pleasant and all of the employees I spoke with were very friendly and inviting.

The night before the on-site interviews, there was a Welcome Dinner which included a tour of the offices and the opportunity to ask questions to current senior-employees as well as recent full-time hires. The morning of the interviews (mine were morning interviews) we were given a small continental breakfast before the interviews.

The behavioral were the typical, "Tell me about a time you worked on a team and there was a difference of opinion on how to approach the project. How did you handle it?" The job-fit interview focused on assessing how much I actually knew about the technical projects and class subjects listed on my resume. For example, a project on my resume mentioned the use of multi-threading so I was asked how I handled thread safety.

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Credit Suisse.

Interview Details – I applied through my school's job board, and was granted an on-campus interview. It was a completely behavioral interview, and no technical questions were asked. After a few weeks, I was given an on-site interview in the New York office. Here, I was interviewed by three vice-presidents, and these interviews were also non-technical. Then I given the opportunity to network with full-time employees who were recently hired out of the internship program. Finally, the day concluded with a tour of the building.

No technical question, all there interviewers asked me to walk through the resume and all same behavioral question.
the interview was pretty good and neat, more like a conversation. May be i was too much focusing on Java as my preference could be a reason for rejection. Else was smooth and easy flowing interview.
