Interview Details –
HR seemed very good. I had three rounds of one on one interviews. Then I never heard anything back from them. I followed up once with HR and was told everything went well and they would be finishing up their interview process soon. That was the last I heard.
Overall interview process was very good but after three rounds I would have expected at least an email or phone call that they were going to go with someone else. That aspect was unprofessional.
Interview Question – Standard audit questions. They mostly look for personality. Answer Question

Interview Details – I applied online and got a first round interview at school. Since I went to a "UBS Days" event a month before, I had already met the interviewer and knew him decently well so the first round was very short and quick and was basically guaranteed second round. He did ask one question which was how do you create a website which is very simple and straight-forward. Second round was on their campus which was two one on one interviews and a group activity which is just sitting in a room with the other candidates discussing a problem they gave you. There were surprisingly no technical questions whatsoever but all behavioral
Interview Question – There really were none. 1) how do you make/setup a website, 2) tell me a time when you worked on a team (outcome etc), 3) run me through your resume Answer Question
