I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at UBS (Weehawken, NJ) in April 2015.
Fairly easy interview process. Interviewed with three executive directors. One in person, one from London, and one from Switzerland.
UBS was very aggressive with interview process and offer was received three days after interview
- What was your biggest accomplishment? Answer Question
Be sure to stand firm when negotiating salary and bonus. Do not provide your current salary during the interview process.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks – interviewed at UBS.
Experienced hire interview. I thought everyone I met was really nice. They mostly asked me about my experience and tested on some light technical knowledge. I was very impressed with everyone I interviewed with.
It took some time to get back to me with a second round interview and decision.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at UBS (Stamford, CT) in July 2011.
My interview process was fairly standard. A friend referred me and put in a good word with HR. I had to complete an online profile. This was followed up with a phone screen and 4 in-person interviews. They were in need of someone fairly quickly, so hiring process was accelerated. Key would be to work your network. Without a recruiter or inside connection, it seems difficult to get in here.
- How would you go about increasing the knowledge base of the group and create an environment for learning and knowledge sharing? Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day – interviewed at UBS (London, England (UK)) in September 2010.
A full day consisting of a test followed by several interviews and a personnel interview.
Test & most of the interviews went very well, but 1 or 2 questions came up during the day that I couldn't answer and I was not made an offer.
1) Know *your* stuff. They will grill you in the general areas and you need to provide accurate answers.
2) Know *their* stuff or be prepared to defend your boundaries. They will also expect you to be expert in the job you are applying for. Either make sure you have all the answers or, where that's not possible, do not be afraid to say that some areas will doubtless be new to you and you are not yet at their level in those areas.
- Be conscious of the group you are entering and research their particular skills/priorities. Answer Question
