I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at UBS in January 2013.
Interview Details – Completely behavioral and two very comfortable phone conversations. Tell your story well and weave your interest in Wealth Management into it. Ask good questions and be sure to do your research beforehand. If you can have at least one conversation with someone who has worked there or in the WM industry, you will have a much better idea of what you're talking about and whether or not you are genuinely interested.
Interview Question – In response to a question I asked, the interviewer proceeded to tell me about her day to day tasks and how that fits in to the two internship tracks. She then asked me which one I thought would suit me better. I was too worried about what I was going to say next that I failed to completely pay attention to what she was saying. I somewhat stumbled to answer the question. Lesson learned: ALWAYS LISTEN WELL. Answer Question
