    Wealth Strategy Associate Interview

    I interviewed through other source - interviewed at UBS in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Be prepared to work with a recruiter who works with UBS, but not for them. Telephone interview process was initially difficult and tedious. I followed up regularly; however, very little communication from either UBS or the recruiter. In the end, I was strung along, only to not receive an interview.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at UBS in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring for a manager due diligence analyst to research and monitor mutual fund managers to be included on UBS's platform. After an initial phone interview, the next step is an in-person interview with the head of the group and the HR hiring manager. A written sample is the next step in the process.

    Interview Questions
    • They ask about how passionate you are are about stocks. Walk through an example of a mutual fund you recommended and how you evaluated that fund. They asked if my fund example was a typical type of fund that I would recommend, but wasn't sure what they were trying to find out with that question.   View Answer

    Base in Chicago. 3 phone interviews.

    2nd and 3rd interviews: one with a junior analyst and one with the managing director, back to back. Still mostly questions on resume, and some questions on the project they are doing (big data in equity selection). They were looking for someone who was tech-savvy and interested in investment. No technical questions at all.

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at UBS in July 2013.
