Very Difficult Interview
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at UBS Investment Bank in January 2011.
Interview Details – I bid for the interview. The recruiter sent an email the night before the interview day saying that we would get the results of the interview that same day by 5pm. Those who passed the 1st round would be invited to dinner and the final round would occur the next day.
Compared to other companies, I thought the immediate notice was very respectful and convenient.
My interviewer was not nice at all...She never smiled, and she looked at me like I was dirt on her shoe.
At some points, when I was getting close to an answer but I didn't quite grasp it, she tried to help me with my logic.
The interview was probably 70% technical, 30% behavioral.
