    Summer Analyst At UBS IB Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at UBS Investment Bank.

    Interview Details

    Had a guaranteed telephone interview from a female networking event. At the beginning of the interview I was told that I couldn't ask any questions and that she had a set list of questions to ask. I couldn't understand her accent so had to ask her to repeat a lot, she wasn't happy to repeat. She asked why investment banking/why ubs/recent transaction/why chose to talk about that transaction/most complicated project I had led/tell me about a time where you didn't meet a deadline/a recent time when I had to make a tough decision. She didn't ask any additional questions from my responses and at the end just said bye and hung up, very rude lady.

    This was last year. I applied online and i did the online tests. They got back to me after two weeks to schedule a telephone interview. It feels like speaking to an answer machine because the HR just asks and keeps quite waiting for you to finish

    Interview Details

    Really chilled out and easy! Nothing to be worried about, all members of the bank were really friendly and interviews were much more like a conversation about myself rather than anything else. No trick questions, they genuinely just want to spend time talking to you and meeting you, keep calm!
