    I applied through college or university – interviewed at UBS.

    Interview Details

    The interview was pretty straightforward and comfortable. My interviewer began by telling me about her background and then asked me to do the same. Next came questions about why I wanted to work for UBS, along with questions about my past work experience. The interviewer then gave me a brief description of the position and gave me time to ask questions.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at UBS in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The interview went well but could have gone better if I had been better prepared. I hadn’t interviewed for a finance position in a while. First off I was wearing business casual, and the interview was more formal. Second, they asked me some quant and game questions that I was very rusty on.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at UBS in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Interview was with 2 employees. I was referred by a client and the interview was very comfortable. The interviewers were very professional but also welcoming. Standard questions asked. Didn't expect much experience as I am a college student looking for a summer internship. Somewhat slow follow up. Still waiting for the next steps in the process.

    Typical investment banking process, exactly the same as every bank I would say. First interview with someone from the Human Resource division, then after a few days I proceeded to the next round where I had an interview with an investment banker. Asked questions about myself, past experiences, valuation methods, deals M&As etc, market outlook, and then I asked some questions.

    First give a behavioral interview and then process to an online test.The behavioral questions are about your basic mathematical intuition and may be give you a tiny case to solve. However, the online test seems very strict. I believed I finished them all correctly however I still did not meet the minimum requirement.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at UBS in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    After applying online, I was given a coding assignment after being contacted via email. Rather than any sort of phone screening, I was asked to complete a coding exercise first before being allowed to interview on campus. Pending a good review with properly written test cases, I would be contacted for the interview. The assignment consisted of programming a HashMap in Java.

    • Here's the gist: you are to write a program to parse sentences into words and then keep track of the occurrence of each word. So, if the program is fed, "The cow jumped of the moon," every word but 'the' would be given a key of 1, while 'the' would be given a key 2.   Answer Question

    I applied online – interviewed at UBS.

    Interview Details

    J'ai été contacté début février après avoir postulé en novembre. Il n'y a qu'un unique entretien, il est assez court (15 minutes environ). J'ai été contacté par téléphone pour un entretien téléphonique programmé deux jours plus tard. La réponse est rapide, normalement la semaine d'après. Pas très difficile, questions classiques (Why UBS, Why this program...), quelques mises en situations.
