Software Developer Interview

Application Details

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at UBS in February 2013.

Interview Details

Initially had the impression that the office is very unmaintained and dirty. The people who did the interview were very professional. They use some really outdated technologies but that is true of any bank. There are varying number of interview rounds depending on team, but usually it will include solving an example task.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at UBS in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted a week later by HR to clarify some basic stuff - after 2 more days they wanted to set up a face-to-face interview.

    Interview consisted of two 30-minute 1:1 interviews with mainly basic C++ questions and debugging/profiling related stuff. First interviewer seemed quite nice, but second interviewer appeared to be more interested in showing off how clever he was than in the answers.

    I was interviewed by the on campus recuit team and the questions was consisted of both behavior and tech questions, except the general HR questions there were some brain teasers as well. It was a 1 to 1 interview and it was very casual, nothing too strict and business like. After one week from the interview, I was invited to their super day, and now I am preparing for the superday now.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at UBS in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with them at university's career fair, got a call the next day for an on campus interview. The questions were straight forward, coding stuff: interpreted vs compiled, what is OOP, what is polymorphism. Then they ask a little about finance: what are stocks, bonds, etc. I didn't go into as much detail with the answers as I should have, it's good to show enthusiasm and knowledge for everything you answer.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at UBS in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    It was a telephonic technical interview. The guy who called me was just asking all basic java questions - classes, collections, garbage collection, design patterns, jdbc steps etc. Managed to answer most of them but did not get a call back. Interview was for half an hour and I guess there was huge competition for the role in the market.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at UBS in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Had a Phone Screen Interview first. Basic programming questions
    Then was invited to their office in Stamford for a 1:1 interview.
    Met with 3 developers in the group.
    All were completely technical interviews. There were designing questions, programming questions, general logic questions. Questions ranged from designing a class for implementation of ChessBoard game to writing code for some Linked List problem implementation. They focussed a lot on multithreading questions and discussed my experience with that. There was a question about string reversal as well which I had to code.
    Each interviewer spend 1/2 hr.
