Interview

Phone interview and 3 rounds of interviews with other analysts and directors. It was quite the experience. Extremely rigorous format with what seemed like consecutive interviews for an entire work day. The final interviews were more about personality and ability to converse and interact with others in the work place.

Interview Questions

  • The most difficult questions were involving the analysis of the financial statements. They expected you to be able to come up with a detailed analysis within minutes of seeing the data.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UBS (Stamford, CT) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Basic questions about overall market trends, 10 year bond yield, S&P, etc. The interviewer did not ask me any of the basic questions like why do you want to work here or tell me about yourself. It was very different from other interviews I had with other banks because my interviewer seemed more rushed and less interested than other people I spoke to at UBS and at other banks. Speaking with him wasn't fun for me... I usually really enjoy interviews.

    Interview

    I went into the office and met with several employed individuals. I got the interview through networking and had an atypical interview/hiring experience as a result. However, the people who interviewed me were more laid-back and friendly than at other banks I had interviewed. Overall, it was a positive interview experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UBS (Chicago, IL) in February 2010.

    Interview

    The process took a very long time. I did not expect to be interview for so long and wait do long for a response. I felt a little frustrated by the process. Heck, I was really frustrated by the process. I am not sure why it took so long. I was expecting a much quicker response. Oh well, maybe next time, but not this time
