Very Easy Interview

Vice President Interview

Vice President
Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Credit Suisse in October 2011.

Interview Details – The role which was posted by the company for campus recruitment was a junior role, and i had applied to gain access to the right people. I had a good first level discussion which led the Sr. HR manager to invite me for a second round of interview/ conversation with her. The conversation went well - however, I made the error of not showing as much interest in the job as I should have. Immediately after I finished my interview, i realised that there was not much enthusiasm from my end for the role, and it would be a miracle if I am actually extended an offer. Just as expected, I was declined for the role.

Vice President

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Credit Suisse in May 2009.

Interview Details – Meetings were set up but the recruiter with team members and head over a course of 2 months. As they were hiring a new team lead, the process was rather intermittent. Interviews were normal with usual questions being asked, a great focus on the technical ability of the candidate to ensure that they were looking at the right candidates.
