Summer Analyst Interview

Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UBS (London, England (UK)) in October 2012.

Interview

I applied for a summer analyst position in the Equity Research Desk. After the online application and online tests (numerical & logical), I was invited to a first round phone interview with the HR. Questions were mostly competency based, including why UBS, why equity research, and also some market-based including what would you do if you had 1 million pounds. After a week, I found out I didn't get the job.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at UBS in December 2014.

    Interview

    There was a campus visit/interview, then I applied online. A few weeks later, I got emailed for a short phone interview with two junior analysts, very casual. They mostly just asked about your resume and a few brainteasers. A week later, I got emailed about the Superday. The Superday consisted of three back-to-back 30 minute interviews (2 fit, 1 technical). The two fit interviews were by the MD and AD. The technical interview was two junior analysts.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at UBS (London, England (UK)) in February 2007.

    Interview

    The interview stage took just one day at the UBS Assessment Centre located on the top floor of their Liverpool Street offices in London. I was in a group consisting of only non-UK students, including lots of French, and out of us 12-or-so about 3 received an offer in the end. UBS interviewers were relaxed, helpful and fair, and overall the interviews were not technical at all but mainly focussed on competencies and talking though the candidates resumes. The numerical test was paper-based, however of exactly the same type as the ones submitted online. Finally, the business case and subsequent presentation were quite straightforward even for someone with a non-finance background. UBS offered me an intern position for IBD that I gladly accepted.
