    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at UBS.

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at UBS (Stamford, CT) in July 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at UBS (London, England (UK)) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Process -
     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.

    Advice -
     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.

    Interview Questions

    • Be conscious of the group you are entering and research their particular skills/priorities.   Answer Question
