I applied through college or university – interviewed at UBS.

The interview was pretty straightforward and comfortable. My interviewer began by telling me about her background and then asked me to do the same. Next came questions about why I wanted to work for UBS, along with questions about my past work experience. The interviewer then gave me a brief description of the position and gave me time to ask questions.

    interviewed at UBS in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very good. There was a two step process involving different people from senior management. Very detailed and helpful. The members of upper level management were very in tune with what they wanted from the potential employee. I would recommend the company to anyone trying to get into the financial industry and expand their knowledge

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UBS in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I met a recruiter at a conference and later forwarded along my resume because I was impressed by their poise and interest in me. They called me to schedule a phone interview about a week later. It was rescheduled once but they were very professional about it. The phone interview was pretty standard with a lot of questions about my resume and interest in operations. I was called the next day and informed that I was invited to their superday for college students. I went and was very impressed with their facility and their employees. It consisted of three interviews with managers and more questions about my resume and interest in operations. There were no tricky business questions or cases. I found most people pretty engaging and interesting, and almost everyone was friendly, including the other recruits. They called me a week later and made an offer.

    Operations Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at UBS in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was prescreened through a phone call with the head of HR. They then set me up for an interview in Jersey City a few days later. I interviewed with a total of 5 people each one on one. The first interview was by far the most difficult. The HR manager came in wearing pink pajamas and sneakers. The questions she asked were not difficult, but her ice cold demeanor made it difficult or impossible to create rapport. I would compare the first interview with an interrogation. The next four 1:1 interviews were much more pleasant and generally assessed whether we could comfortably work together.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at UBS.

    Interview Details

    Had a telephone interview with member of HR, very relaxed and overall lasted about 20 mins. All competency based questions and a few about why UBS and why operations.

    Heard back about two months later and was invited to an Assessment Centre. I was to have 3 interviews and a numeracy test. Numeracy was fairly basic but everyone felt like they'd struggled in the time allowed but we all passed. Then the interviews with different teams within operations. All informal and relaxed. They started off with a brief outline of the what the team did and what we should expect to do daily.

    Did not get a role in operations but was invited to another assessment centre with a different division.
