I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at UBS Investment Bank (Madison, WI).
I found out about the job through my school employer, I emailed my resume and signed up for an interview time.
The interview date came, I drove to Madison and meet one of the owners and last years intern. The woman was nice, told about herself and her husband and how the company came to be and about the company. Then asked me to tell her about myself and explain my resume.

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks – interviewed at UBS Investment Bank in February 2014.
The only interview required was a 20 minute phone interview. The interviewer was very clear the formulation of her questions, which was very helpful. As someone with little banking experience, it was fairly intimidating and there was a level of detail in the questions about the banking industry that made the process difficult.
- If you were given 1 million pounds what would you invest it it? What do you think has been the most significant event in the banking industry in the last 2 years? Answer Question

I applied through other source – interviewed at UBS Investment Bank (New York, NY) in November 2013.
Was fast tracked to an accelerated Superday specifically for previous sophomore interns. Superday with 3 groups meant to focus on specific areas (technical, behavioral, etc). Last interview went 15 minutes over allotted time and I was grilled on technicals I did not know (coming from liberal arts school - had glanced over vault/WSJ before but they asked total tossups). Two of the interviews were group interviews with 2 interviewers. A couple of the interviewers were nice, the rest were not.
- Your resume screams x, so why don't you want to go into x instead of banking? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at UBS Investment Bank (New York, NY) in September 2013.
Applied online; following a phone screen was invited in for face to face interview at fairly sr level. Was asked to continue to next steps and had 3rd round as a phone interview with Sr leader in different location than first meeting. Discussions went well, but very little communication ...then told requisitions were still not officially approved and "stand by". Never heard back.
- Very simple, straight forward questioning. Nothing difficult or challenging about the interview process with very pleasant, sr folks. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at UBS Investment Bank (Weehawken, NJ) in May 2013.
No department for onboarding process. Took three weeks for everything to setup and be able to start doing my job. The position for London was much better conducted and organized because they had a process. For the US positions it was cut throat no one wanted to take the time
1 round oncampus interview + half day onsite. first round was only very basic question, and onsite has 2 round of tech coding and 1 round of behavior and a group discussion. I got this as a internship offer, after internship they will give some full time offer, which is very good.
