Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (New York, NY) in June 2017.

Interview

I applied online and went through an accelerated process that consisted of an initial phone screen, insight day, then final round interview. The final round was only CV-based/conversational with no technicals.

I only write here because of the extremely unprofessional nature of my recruiting experience that led me to decline this firm. Firstly, for both the spring day and final round I had transportation difficulties. where I had scheduled my flight and interview through CS but only 3 days before received email from HR of a reception earlier that day. To make this I requested a flight change, but HR refused to accommodate, yelled at me over the phone, then cancelled my return trip (which I was not informed of)- I had to travel back and forth out of my own pocket.

More importantly my final round was forgotten. After waiting over a half hour in the waiting room, I requested to speak to the organizers, who informed me that my interviewer had arrived at the correct time, but "nobody had led me over" to the room in which he was waiting- so he eventually left. At this point, most senior bankers had gone home and organizers scrambled last-minute to find someone who would interview me. Upon completing the interview I was walked out by my interviewer himself because HR was nowhere in sight- they had also gone home.

HR/Recruiters must be more organized. Despite my (and any candidates) preparation I sensed a lack of respect for potential employees. I developed a rapport with the senior bankers, but the overall unprofessional experience was a source of motivation for accepting an offer elsewhere.

    I went through a Super Day interview process where I met five CS professionals (one from HR, and four individuals from the M&A group). The HR interview was behavioral, and the interviews with them M&A professionals were based on testing my knowledge of finance, accounting and math.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted via email by a recruiter within days. Had a brief phone interview that was more informational than anything else, and was told that the position I had applied to was already wrapping up the recruitment process but that my resume would be kept on file. Was contacted about a week later with another position and had an in-person interview at the office. Interview was about an hour total, with two 30-minute sessions with the team leader an an assistant VP. Both were very friendly and asked all behavioral questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Raleigh, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The whole interview process was enjoyable. The recruiter called me first and had a brief interview. After one week, I got the onsite interview invitation. I came to the Raleigh office and had three rounds with VP, Director and AVP. It was about one and half hours. People were very nice. The questions were about the skills (especially Excel and analytical skills) I obtained from the past experience and how to transfer them into the new role. They are not hard. Also, " why Credit Suisse", " How do you feel about the extended working hours" and " Could you tell me about your excel skills" were asked in every round. So, be prepared for these three questions. After two days, I received the offer and accepted it.
