Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at UBS in February 2008.

Interview Details

The interview consisted of a panel of employees, while also the occasional 1-on-1's thoughout the day. I was able to speak with employees at all levels of the organization, and ask any questions I had. They wanted to know that I had researched the company well, and asked me some finance questions as well.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at UBS in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    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

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at UBS in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, got invitation to the interview. Day started with numerical reasoning test, which was easier than online, however the ammount of work was huge. Therefore, you have to work really quickly and accuratelly those 45 minutes. After that got 1:1 interview. It was really short one only half an hour, so it was basic competencies questions + a couple of technical questions. After a couple of days got rejected. After 3 more days taught coursemate how to to numerical reasoning as UBS asked her to return and redo the test and I quote the HR person in UBS "as she did not fail, just her points achieved were not high enough". Not surprisingly she did very well :). Strange system, favoritism at its best.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UBS in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had a conference call for about an hour with 2 future members of the team. Talked about me and them. They asked me question to test my knowledge and I asked them questions about what kind of job they are doing. Overall very friendly, but was a little problem with connection: I was in Russia, another person was in London and another person in Sydney (Australia).

    I applied online – interviewed at UBS.

    Interview Details

    Went through three rounds of interviews. HR was very friendly and accommodating. Hiring managers were not hard to talk to and easy going. Heard back within 2 days after the first interview. The second and third in person interview was further apart. Total time was about 2 months. Overall enjoyed the experience.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at UBS in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Multiple interviewers, not particularly structured interview outside of this however. I believe they did not have a set timeline in mind for the role, but it was a strange interview without any behavioral questions or really any questions of all besides going over the role and my background with them asking for further info on a few points but not at all what I expected.

    All the interviewers seemed like really good potential co-workers however, I just think this particular role was a bit unusual and therefore their knowledge in how they could fill it might be less than a typical UBS job interview- hence I thought it was easy in my overall impression, but that I was not particularly good at this easy interview.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at UBS in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.
