I applied through an employee referral and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at UBS Investment Bank in February 2013.
Interview Details – Flew into the New York office for super day. Had 3 interviews back to back. 2 of the 3 were with pairs of Associates at the firm. One was with VP. Interviewers were very friendly, genuine people. They were not 'cut-throat' at all as what people think of at major investment banks. Asked me to run through a DCF, speak about how to value a coffee shop on the corner of two busy streets in manhattan, and run through how depreciation is adjusted in the financial statements. The rest of the questions were really trying to gauge if I was truly interested in IB and had my story straight/could speak fully about my past experiences.
Interview Question – The hardest would have been to speak about how depreciation affects the 3 financial statements..which was really not hard at all. Answer Question

Interview Details – First round phone interview followed by superday at NY office. First round consisted of fit questions, accounting questions and questions about current macro economy. Superday consisted of 4 20-30 minutes interviews. All fit questions, nothing technical, although that could be because I came from a non-business school. Could be different for business students.
Interview Question – Explain the fiscal cliff Answer Question

Interview Details – Tough screening process, Like any investment banking interview it is long gruelling and painful if you aren't completely prepared.
The phone interviews were standard, they just want to know if you are intelligent and well spoken so if you get invited to a super day they won't be shunned for going to bat for you.
Super day was very interesting. A great team and pretty firm.

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at UBS Investment Bank in December 2011.
Interview Details – Submitted my resume/cover letter through school's career page, but I don't think that's how I got the interview. They were on campus and I went out with a few of their reps to dinner and bars after an information session; I was told that night I'd get an interview.
There were two phone interviews, mostly behavioral with one or two markets related questions. I was then invited to the Superday, which consisted of six 30-minute interviews, back to back. Again, the interviews were mostly behavioral but a little bit more geared toward market-based questions. One guy asked me what stocks I was following, to which I had no good answer. Luckily the next interviewer came in just in time to interrupt us. I also got a really easy probability question from one of the interviewers.
Interview Question – This wasn't difficult, but it's the only specific question I can remember.
You're playing basketball and you're down by 2. You know you can hit a 2-pointer to tie the game with 28% probability, and then go on to win the game in overtime with 50% probability. Alternatively, you know you can hit a 3-pointer and win with 15% probability. Which do you take? View Answer
