    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UBS.

    Interview

    General question about background, school experience and plans for the future. Talked around 40 minutes. My friend referred me to the company and a person there. So, the interview was just a formality. I guess, they just wanted to check if I am sane person and can operate in a corporate environment. Though, it wasn't the summer internship or anything like that. I was an intern during Winter semester and just helping in a local office where several financial advisors are reside.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UBS (Weehawken, NJ).

    Interview

    I appreciate interviews that feel more like a conversation than a test. This was not that kind of interview. They didn't seem to want to get to know me or my background, instead they asked many scripted questions. I understand that this is how it works at some places, but I left feeling like they didn't really gave me a chance to express my talents.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at UBS.

    Interview

    I worked hard to get the interview because the company is so widely recognized. Initially, I was supposed to go in for an in person interview but the team could not schedule a date that worked with both of us so I turned to a phone interview. The phone call led to an in person interview. I talked to an employee for about 20 minutes. The person I talked to on the phone did not even take the time to talk to me after he was the person that invited me to come in in the first place.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at UBS (Chicago, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Good experience. I applied online and was contacted via phone from their HR department and was able to schedule an interview the next week. I met with about 6-7 people in a span of a few hours and had a positive overall experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UBS (Chicago, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through college career website. Received an e-mail from an associate a week later to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview was for 20-25 min asking simple questions about my resume, university and background. 3 days later, i received another e-mail to schedule a interview at UBS offices. The interview was with the same associate, it seemed to be more of a conversation rather than an interview. Asked more detail of current work, previous coursework, and a couple of technical questions and short term goals. Good experience overall

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UBS.

    Interview

    After I submitted the application, I was asked to do a survey. Survey asked why I wanted the role, what I'd bring to the question, locations I preferred, etc. Then, had a follow-up call with an executive director and was later brought in to Superday. It's been more than 3 weeks and I haven't heard a word. Clearly, I didn't get it, but closing the loop would be nice.
