    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 days - interviewed at UBS in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was an oncampus recruitment. Had 2 interviews on the first day. Just asked about the resume, nothing technical.

    Then had a superday with 3 interviews with project manager and a group discussion.

    I was called again to meet the MD to review my resume, since i was from hardware background and why did i want to go to software.

    No technical questions at all.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at UBS in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Was invited for on campus interview first, which is basically a discussion of your resume. Then got invited to superday at their office location in Jersey. People were great. They changed the interview pattern a little, it's more technical now with a a few written coding questions.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Zürich (Switzerland)

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at UBS in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact was a telephone interview with both technical questions and more general discussions about myself. The usual sort of core Java questions were asked: hashCodes/Equal and their use in HashMaps etc. Mainly questions to ensure that you know or at least have thought about what is going on under the Java APIs. The phone call was around 40 minutes.

    This was then followed up with an in person interview in Switzerland. The interview was more of the same, technical interview with three teams over the course of an afternoon. The interview technique varies between teams but you can expect to have a well known computing problem to walk through. Remember the right answer is no always as important as showing your workings and talking to the interviewer about what you are doing and thinking. Other teams just wanted to talk about my cv, the role and why I was looking to move to Switzerland.

    The office tour was brief but from what I saw it the open plan areas was very quiet (good or bad you decide) and desks seemed reasonably well equipped, though there were developers with only one screen or just a laptop.

    Interview Questions
    • Explain why an efficient hashcode algorithm is needed to make an efficient HashMap. i.e. why is returning 1 not a great plan.   View Answer
    • Explain the data   Answer Question
