    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at UBS.

    Interview Details

    The people were really nice and walk you through the interview. The questions were mostly behavioral and they made sure hard questions were more of a dialogue than sitting there silently while you struggle through it. Very nice people, both sales and product development. This was their first time hiring an intern for their department so I'm not sure they had a concrete process. Fun interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at UBS.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an Associate of the firm to come in for an interview in mid December 2013. They were in crisis mode when I had arrived and there was no shaking the interviewers mind off of what was happening outside of the interview. It lasted 10 minutes. She clearly was trying to finish as quickly as possible so she could get back to work.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at UBS.

    Interview Details

    Series of interviews with peer group, MD's and eventually the division head. All very standard questions. No real surprises. Asked about industry contacts, time spent in different areas, technical aspects of various classes. How I felt about relocation, how would I feel about European travel, etc.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Direct, although it was with HR, which was strange. Ultimately, I had to explain to the MD what the "deal" was and s/he was not pleased with aspects of it.
