    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The process was pretty straightforward. I applied online through my University, and was contacted a few weeks later. After a phone screen, I went into the office for an in-person interview that was fairly short, maybe 30 min-1 hr. The in-person interview was conversational; I first met with the Office Manager, and then the Financial Advisor I would be working with. Mostly behavioral questions. After the in-person interview I was notified almost immediately.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UBS.

    Interview

    Had a direct interview with the financial advisor. She made the position clear. I was a little disappointed that the financial advisor was looking for a somewhat marketing intern. She pretty much asked me behavioral questions.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UBS (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at UBS (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was longer than I was expecting. I did not think that it would take over 3 months to complete a background check. The interview itself was difficult, but the rest of the process was rather painless. There was no drug test or any other type of testing required for this job.
