The process took a day - interviewed at UBS in August 2010.

Interview Details – There was a super-day after our summer analyst program. It consisted of 3 interviews: 2 with VP's, and one with either an MD or an ED. It was easy to communicate with them, there were no technicals. They just wanted to find out about our experiences and have a conversation.

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at UBS in January 2010.

Interview Details – Quick phone interview by 2 first year analysts covering interest and a walkthough of common valuation methods. The interview felt rushed and vaguely unprofessional since it was not handled by HR. The interviewers seemed more intent on affirming weaknesses rather than evaluating strengths. Overall, it felt that they were more interested in dissuading in further efforts by both parties.

Interview Question – Walk through DCF evaluation model   Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at UBS in January 2008.

Interview Details – As I was not located out of the region, so a few phone interviews were arranged. I first had the interview with HR, asking basic questions such as "why you choose GS", "why leaving your existing employer", etc. Then I had 4 more phone conversations with other members of the team. The interviewers were nice. Questions were straight forward and similar.

Interview Question – The work hours are long here. Will you be able to handle your work and study for the CPA exams at the same time?   Answer Question
