Vice President Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Credit Suisse.

Interview Details

I had 13 interviews on 5 separate days for a VP-level job. Most interviewers were totally unprepared, had no idea who I was or why I was there. One Branch Manager said, "I don't know why we're even looking at someone for that position." Another CEO direct report said, "I have a tie over there on the hook but I didn't think you were important enough to put it on."

    Interview Details

    Application via cv, followed by a number of interviews with various levels of seniority. Depending on who interviews you can have very different experiences. Mine were generally pleasant but people are not afraid to ask tough and probing questions.
    Whole process took less than two weeks but probably because they were keen to get someone in and also people that interviewed just happened to have been around.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.
